Water and Environment

Our water and environment teams work hard to help our clients leave the world
in a better condition than we inherited it.

Flood Risk Management

We provide client-facing services to Lead Local Flood Authorities throughout the country. Our strategic management of flood risk programmes is driven by Local Flood Risk Management Strategies that we create and maintain for our clients. We coordinate risk management authorities to manage flood risk holistically, acknowledging that water doesn’t adhere to political boundaries. This ranges from catchment-based planning and investigations following flooding incidents, to the development of drainage proposals for future developments and the championing of sustainable drainage systems (SuDS) and environmental improvements.

We have taken a leading role in this industry, with well-established relationships across all stakeholders, including water companies and the Environment Agency. We have an impressive track record of accessing external funding to enhance local understanding of flood risk and the progression of mitigation schemes.

Water Engineering

From initial feasibility, we use our bespoke appraisal techniques to facilitate better decision-making based on sound evidence and hydraulic modelling. Our industry-leading approach has helped our clients to secure millions of pounds worth of external funding for their projects.

Our team of experienced engineers deliver traditional drainage engineering, but our real passion lies in designing innovative sustainable drainage systems (SuDS) to manage surface water and mitigate flooding while enhancing the natural environment and improving water quality.

We deliver reliable flood risk assessments and drainage strategies to the private sector, taking on complex problems in residential and industrial sites and creating sustainable solutions that suit each client’s budget and the planning authority’s requirements.
