Flood Survey

Flood Surveys, Site Visits & Reports, Due Diligence & Consultancy

Holistic site assessments by qualified professionals.

Understanding the flood risk of a property is the first step to managing that risk and being prepared for what the future holds.

When conducting a survey our engineers will consider: flood risk, construction style, drainage and client goals/lifestyle,  ensuring that any mitigation measures recommended are suitable and effective.

We are a team of award-winning Flood Consultants and Chartered Engineers, led by Simon Crowther BEng (Hons) C.WEM MCIWEM and Rob Pike MSc BSc (Hons) MCIWEM. Simon was flooded in 2007 and has since made it his mission to raise awareness of flood risk and help reduce it.

No site is the same, and our flood surveys enable us to look in depth at the property in question. We discuss any previous flood events, or the issues present and establish what type of flooding causes problems. We then look for areas water can enter, and the best options for resilience or protection. We compile recommendations, along with estimates for recommended remedial action if required.

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.
