Flood Risk Assessments

From small sites to those of strategic size, we have the extensive technical knowledge to assess the risk of flooding for flood zones on all types of developments to satisfy National Planning Practice Guidance requirements and Planning Authorities’ approvals.

Assessing the consequences of development to the downstream surface water regime is of equal importance and at Ingent we have a track record of developing practical and economical solutions to mitigate impact.

Using drainage design software and liaising closely with the relevant governing bodies, our comprehensive FRAs will address all likely issues including fluvial flooding, groundwater flooding, existing sewers, surface water flooding and infrastructure failure.
