Flood Defence and Protection

We design, and specify bespoke engineered flood defences, including flood barriers, flood gates and flood doors.

Floods can be commercially devastating. We offer flood defences to reduce the flood risk for businesses and industry. We can help you protect your premises from flood water damage by providing the right flood defences for your needs.

We pride ourselves in our ability to offer unique flood defence designs that are innovative, efficient and above all else, dependable.

We work with architects and consultants all over the world and our clients include government agencies, utility companies, commercial businesses, retail chains, and power stations.



Flood Consultants, Chartered Surveyors and Project Managers


We provide a range of assessments and strategies tailored to your individual needs and my clients include planning consultants, architects, developers, land owners and individual house holders.


Flood Risk Assessments

Our Flood Risk Assessments are undertaken in accordance with the National Planning Policy Framework and can include a simple comment on the possible method of foul and surface water disposal or, alternatively, an additional Outline Sustainable Drainage Strategy.


Sustainable Drainage

For some developments the Lead Local Flood Authority will expect drainage information for the site and we can include within the Flood Risk Assessment an Outline Sustainable Drainage Strategy. This will be an indicative strategy suitable for a planning application and will be based on calculations using a software tool developed by HR Wallingford to demonstrate the existing greenfield runoff rate; an appropriate surface water discharge rate: point of discharge and corresponding storage requirements.


Flood Evacuation Plans


If required by the Environment Agency or Emergency Planners we can produce a Flood Management and Evacuation Plan.


Please contact us for more information - see below.

Based in West Yorkshire with satellite offices in Liverpool, Truro, Lewes and York we cover most of the North of England and the South West.. By arrangement we can offer our surveys and advice nationwide if required, but travelling costs and size of project would need to be negotiated.
