At Flume, we understand that every project is different, and we take a flexible and collaborative approach to our work. Whether you need a Flood Risk Assessment, a SuDS Strategy or Drainage Design for a new development, or civil engineering services for a range of projects, we have the expertise and knowledge to deliver results. We offer a complete range of services from design through to construction.
We offer a comprehensive range of flood risk services, including Flood Risk Assessments (also known as FRAs), Sustainable Drainage (SuDS) Strategies, Flood and River Modelling, and Flood Mitigation Plans. Our flood risk consultants have experience working with the Environment Agency to ensure a smooth approval process.
National policy requires that developments of more than ten units (including residential, industrial, commercial and mixed-use sites) incorporate Sustainable Drainage Systems (SuDS) into the development proposals. You may also need a surface water drainage strategy if you're increasing the footprint of an existing site. If your development is within an area designated as Flood Zones 2 and 3, or an area identified as having a surface water flooding problem, you are also likely to need a SuDS | Drainage Strategy.
We design sustainable solutions to manage surface/storm water, prevent flooding, and protect the environment. Our expertise in drainage design ensures efficient and effective systems that meet national and local policy, building regulations requirements and adhering to all relevant British Standards - while also considering any future allowances in climate change.
We offer a range of road design services, including alignment design, pavement design, drainage design, and traffic management.
Flume provide comprehensive analysis for earthworks, using industry leading engineering software and drawing upon our expertise in GIS Analysis and 3D Modelling to deliver cost-effective and efficient solutions for our clients.
