We use flood risk assessments, sustainable drainage strategies and ecology surveys to support your UK planning application. Our in-depth knowledge supported by our ICE engineers, along with our in-depth survey data, provides recommendations for build, supported by our robust understanding of the National Policies (within the UK), Regional Policies and Nature Conservation Legislation relating to development.
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.
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.
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:
Our ecology surveys identify any ecological constraints to developing a site and help you get planning permission by proposing practical measures that will preserve important habitats and encourage biodiversity.
Working with our experienced team, you increase your chances of success.
