We offer a range of environmental assessments and surveys to support planning applications in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland
As environmental specialists, we can offer a variety of environmental surveys and assessments for our clients. These environmental assessments can be used to obtain planning permission where environmental concerns have been cited, reduce the costs associated with rejected planning applications, and gain environmental credits towards BREEAM certification.
Our industry experience has given us an in-depth knowledge of national and regional policies, as well as nature conservation legislation relating to all areas of development. Combined with our state-of-the-art survey data, our environmental assessments are industry leading in both speed and accuracy.
The environmental assessments and surveys we offer:
- Flood Risk Assessments
- Drainage and SuDS
- Civil Engineering
Flood Risk Assessments
We generate flood risk assessments (FRA) to meet both basic planning application requirements and to help address complex flood risks that could stand in the way of your planning approval. Our expertise expands to supporting projects from conceptual stage through to completion and we can support most if not all projects at any stage. Find out more about our FRA services here.
Drainage and SuDS
A sustainable drainage strategy (SuDS) is a report into how surface water, usually caused by rain, affects a site and the surrounding area. By getting a drainage strategy early in the development process you can avoid the costs of later design changes and additional planning applications. Find out more about our drainage and SuDS services here.
Our expertise can support your project with calculations, desk-based studies, drainage and road design including detailed drawings for a diverse range of sectors. We can’t directly support structural design and construction works, but we know people who can – just ask us for a recommendation. Our Civil Engineering services include:
- Scheme design and detailing of drainage, flood risk and roads to support planning applications
- Site visits from our ICE Engineers and supporting consultants
- Designs up to tender, building regulations and construction stages
When you work with our experienced team, you increase your chances of planning approval success.
