What’s the Flood Risk Assessment process?

A comprehensive Flood Risk Assessment (FRA) for business continuity planning or due diligence typically involves:

  • Gathering and analysing all the available flood risk information for the site
  • Collating flood data from the Environment Agency (if required) and from our own in-house 2D flood modelling using our proprietary flood modelling software
  • Evaluating the likelihood, depth and extent of flood waters and their impact for a variety of return periods
  • A detailed assessment of flood risk relating to fluvial, tidal, groundwater, and sewer flooding
  • Conducting a site survey to gain a thorough understanding of the area and any existing measures to reduce flood risk

What will the business continuity flood risk report include?

Our detailed reports combine the best available data for the area (either our own or from a respected third party), supported by our extensive knowledge and expertise. Our reports include:

  • 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
  • A clear assessment of the likelihood and extent of potential flooding both on-site and within the surrounding area
  • A summary of the site survey (if required) along with any existing information and history of flooding on the site
  • Photographs from our consultants’ site visit
  • Details of any existing flood alleviation measures which may protect the site
  • Recommendations for flood resilience and mitigation

How long does an FRA for business assets take?

The length of time it takes for us to complete an FRA is largely determined by the amount of properties we would be assessing. For example, if you’re moving offices and you only want to assess the risk of the new property, that would likely take our usual 20-40 working days. However, if you’re looking to assess your portfolio of 50+ properties, this will likely take longer.

The data that would be necessary for us to complete our assessment comes from the Environmental Agency or relevant governing agency and typically takes 20 working days. Sometimes it can be reduced, but this is the typical timescale. Beyond that, the timeline is determined by the size and scope of the report.
