Drainage Design

Drainage Design

At Flood Protection Solutions Ltd we work with leading engineers and consultants, enabling us to offer a wide range of consultancy services including drainage design.

Drainage design is often overlooked, however when designed effectively, can be key at reducing flood risk. Following on from a site survey, further works including detailed drainage designs to mitigate the flood risk may be recommended.

In certain instances, it is possible to record the site catchment and use computer software to model rainfall events and ensure drainage capacity is designed to cope with intense storm events.

Where suitable, this approach can drastically reduce flood risk.

The management of water will become increasingly challenging as the population increases, more construction occurs and weather events become more extreme.

The management of water affects every one of us in our day to day lives, whether it is water to wash with, drink, or dealing with rainfall or waste water, the managing and processing of water is vitally important.

After 4 floods in 16 years, the Water-Gate Barrier was used in November and December 2012. The relief when it prevented what would have been a 5th and 6th flood was enormous. The best part is the piece of mind that follows.
