Pell Frischmann’s Catchment and Surface Water Management Team provides expertise in flood risk management and flood resilience ranging from:
- River catchment and integrated urban drainage management studies;
- Flood risk assessments;
- Drainage impact assessment/strategies;
- Design and construction supervision of flood alleviation schemes protecting communities.
Our civil, structural, and geotechnical teams have decades of experience in utilities and infrastructure. From homes and workplaces to the utilities and infrastructure that serve them, we help ensure resilience against climate change through flood prevention efforts to tackle floods or undertaking detailed predictive modelling to help protect against new weather patterns and rising sea levels. A single flood event can undermine so much that we normally take for granted such as cutting our energy supplies and halting basic sanitation.
- Flood Relief – Schemes delivered from concept through planning permission and design to construction;
- Flood Modelling – Hydrological and hydraulic modelling across large or small areas can be vital to finding the right interventions;
- Critical Infrastructure Protection – From assessing risks, to identifying the means by which it might be reduced, then overseeing delivery of new infrastructure;
- Natural Waterway Enhancement – Supporting rivers and the land by removing man-made hindrances where possible.
River Hull Integrated Catchment Study
This ICE Sir John Fowler Awarded scheme considered a variety of options for the catchment area including large flood storage reservoirs, new pumping station arrangements, and rerouting flows around the city of Hull.
