With a 20 year track record in the assessment and management of flood risk, our Water Environment team has a reputation as prominent experts in the safe delivery of development in the most complex of flood related settings.
Tracking the effects of climate change and associated changes in policy over this period, our team has maintained the foresight to recognise how flooding would have a significant impact on how developments would be delivered and assembled a ‘water team’ of the brightest and best in the understanding of flood, hydrology, hydraulics, drainage impacts and mitigation. Our ‘water team’ has evolved to specialize in all aspects of the Water Environment, encompassing a Water Engineering capability to deliver practical solutions from assessment stage through to construction. Our engineers and scientist utilise the latest software to analyse and design the optimum solutions to mitigate impacts and enhance the water environment.
Given our extensive range of water services and size of team, we are unique in that we do not sit on any regulatory frameworks. We remain advisors to private Clients and are able to appropriately challenge the regulatory flood mapping and modelling without conflict, to derive the best solution for our Clients.
Flooding and Climate Change - A picture of increasing resolution
In the aftermath of the extreme flooding we witnessed in recent weeks across central Europe, which has scarred the landscape and our conscience in respect to the destructive effects of climate change, we witnessed scenes earlier this week closer to home. Extreme rainfall in London saw a catastrophic impact on the property and infrastructure of the city. The images of these events serve as a timely reminder to the politicians and policy makers of the ever growing importance of their active engagement in the forthcoming UN Climate Change Conference (COP26) in Glasgow, to share a common view that the need for change is urgent....read more
