Flood Risk

Preventing the risk and effect of flood

agb Environmental is able to cater for the needs and requirements of flood risk assessments. Required for all planning applications for major developments and those within areas of high flooding risk, each assessment provides the project team with the information to secure the development.

Offering Flood Risk Assessments for all types of developments, in all Flood Zones countrywide, our team of industry experts ensure a full assessment and mediation of your project to ensure a reduced disruption on your project.

Able to achieve planning authority approval for new developments, we provide guidance and report services tailored to your individual site specific requirements.

Working with a variety of developments, from single to large multi-unit residential schemes, commercial schemes, including office complexes, retail, business and science parks, as well as public sector schemes including schools and hospitals, we are able to provide the correct certification to see your build through to completion.

Taking into account further interferences, and the ‘bigger picture’ we ensure the correct level of service is provided, keeping you update on our progress from the initial consultations.

Co-ordinating multiple service requirements, we are able to combine our Flood Risk Assessments with other ground investigations, ensuring that information is carried across the disciplines to increase the quality of the end result.

Whilst our reports are of the highest quality, we convey only our findings, ensuring that all parties involved, from the architect to the engineer and building surveyors comprehend our findings and the effect it may have longer term.

Taking into consideration the entire development, our Project Management services are the perfect way to ensure your development is fit for purpose from the start. Enabling development, we are able to provide flood risk surveys whilst taking into account future plans for the site and offering our team of in-house specialists to examine the development for other areas of concern to avoid timely and costly delays.
