Sustainable Drainage Solutions

Every new construction project has to provide some form of sustainable drainage solution, or at least prove why it cannot. From a drainage perspective, this means that any rainfall should be treated and disposed of as close to its source in order to be considered as sustainable.

Sustainable drainage solutions or SUDs take many forms from infiltration techniques using soakaways or swales, to the use of ponds, wetlands and swales. SUDs provide two functions; they allow water to enter the water cycle at their natural rate, therefore reducing flood risk whilst also ensuring that water quality is not affected by development.

Our experience enables us to choose the correct Sustainable Drainage Solution for the particular site through determining the on-site infiltration rate either through desk top or site testing and then provide advice on how this can be best accommodated within a development.

In addition to the examples above, we consider ourselves adept at challenging projects, and would welcome new and innovative schemes for us to test our skills! Should any of our services be of interest, please contact us via any of the methods available on our Contact Us page.

We have worked with Canham Consulting over the past ten years, their approach to structural problems has been creative and their service prompt and professional.

Much of our work involves contemporary insertions into listed buildings and Canhams are sensitive to traditional structures while being appreciative of a contemporary approach to design.
