Our water and environment teams work hard to help our clients leave the world

From planning application management to flood risk investigations, we deliver a client-facing service providing value to multiple internal departments in a number of council offices around the country. Becoming an integrated part of our clients’ teams, we deliver the Lead Local Flood Authority duties and represent councils on local and national water management forums.

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


Our appraisals team love a complex problem to solve. We work closely with you from day one, turning opportunities into optimised solutions.

Our bespoke appraisals techniques and expertise can be applied to many water management and ecological challenges, facilitating better decision making based on sound evidence, industry-leading flood risk modelling methodology and expert recommendations.
