Drainage Strategies

BWB Consulting can prepare foul and surface water drainage strategies for a range of developments from single buildings on individual plots, which can present their own particular challenges, to commercial campus developments and sustainable urban extensions.

A well thought through, practical and sustainable drainage strategy can be the key to unlocking development potential and or overcoming planning obstacles.

What is involved will vary from site to site but typically will begin with negotiation of appropriate discharge rates with regulators, be that the sewerage undertakers or the Environment Agency. Collaboration with master planners to incorporate necessary features such as pumping stations and attenuation features into the landscape is often required, with sensitivity applied to the space requirements of such features.

A range of detail in the outputs can be provided by BWB, depending upon the objective, from a comparatively simple drainage assessment through to a detailed drainage strategy or conceptual drainage design.
