The site for this proposed housing development comprised a single dwelling with associated garage, which were both to be demolished. The proposed development was for eight, three-bedroomed terraced properties in two blocks, with associated access, parking provision and amenity space.

  • an evaluation of all forms of flood risk to the development
  • geotechnical analysis to determine surface water infiltration
  • a drainage strategy report with schematic layout

For the construction, the Guildford team provided:

  • discharge of planning conditions related to drainage
  • discharge consents with the local drainage authority
  • SUR1/2 assessment to support the development’s Code for Sustainable Homes accreditation

and in addition, produced:

  • Detailed design of drainage system for construction
  • Appropriate use of Sustainable Drainage (SUDS) such as permeable surfacing and soakaways
  • Supporting Hydraulic calculations (run-off rates, infiltration, attenuation/soakaways, foul water)
  • Specification of drainage materials and construction details
