Minimising damage and losses caused by flooding
We work with companies of all sizes to help them assess and reduce their flood risk, and develop early flood warning systems and emergency flood response plans. Our flood risk assessments and consultancy services can help your company:
- Reduce insurance premiums
- Protect stock, property and other assets
- Comply fully with health and safety regulations
- Make your business more resilient against the effects of flooding.
Improving resilience and supporting business continuity
A comprehensive flood risk assessment for business continuity planning or due diligence typically provides businesses with a detailed evaluation of the likelihood, extent and impacts of flooding to the site and the surrounding area from river, tidal, groundwater and surface water. Based on this we would recommend how you could strengthen existing flood defence measures and take steps to increase your business’ resilience to flooding.

The Bank of England is only one of a number of key London sites at risk of flash flooding caused by surface water. We looked at a few other commercial and residential sites at risk, despite being far from any water courses.
Even in a low-risk flood zone, changing the land use can alter infiltration and cause concerns for local residents and the Environment Agency. A new solar farm in Gloucestershire needed to show they wouldn’t increase flood risk.
