Flood Risk

XCO2 offers Flood Risk Assessments (FRAs) and outline Sustainable Drainage System (SuDS) solutions for planning projects located across all potential flood zone scenarios within London and the UK.

FRAs are approached on case by case basis utilising the most recent and comprehensive data from the Environment Agency, local councils and third party flood modelling practices. This allows assessments to provide an accurate and informed insight into the potential flood risk associated with development sites and ensures the most appropriate mitigation measures and emergency management procedures are recommended in the event of a flood.

At XCO2, we aspire to deliver intelligent and integrated SuDS solutions to suitably manage surface water run-off. We focus not only on the capacity of these systems to adequately manage water quantity and improve the water quality, but also champion the often overlooked aspects of SuDS, including the opportunity to provide a valued public amenity element and enhance the sites biodiversity.

Our team is formed of CIRIA (Construction Industry Research and Information Association) accredited consultants with diverse project experience – ranging from small-scale renovation projects to large multi-residential and commercial developments. FRAs and SuDS Strategies can be provided as separate or combined reports to suite individual project requirements.
