STM was recently appointed by a concerned home owner who wanted to redevelop his property which is partially located within a functional floodplain. However, the EA informed that the current best available flood modelling of the site was considered to be out of date and therefore insufficient for site specific designs.
STM Consultants was recommended to undertake detailed modelling at the site which resulted in challenging the EA flood maps at that location. Moreover, releasing the intellectual property rights of the model allowed the EA to provide the most up to date and relevant data for specific locations.
STM firmly believes in collaboration, understanding and participation. We worked closely with the EA and came up with a flood mitigation and resilience scheme for the new development.
How STM Increased Building Footprint While Decreasing Flood Risk
We managed to provide a level for level, storage for storage compensation scheme, implement SuDS mitigation measures to reduce surface runoff and recommend flood resilience construction guidelines to keep the development flood free
