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.

Lead Local Flood Authority Support

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.

Water Management

From initial feasibility, we use our bespoke appraisals techniques to facilitate better decision-making based on sound evidence and both hydraulic and ecological 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 design innovative and cost-effective traditional and sustainable drainage solutions, with a focus on buildability and enhancement of the environment.

We deliver reliable flood risk assessments and drainage strategies, 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.
