Flood risk assessment and alleviationMany coastal and inland locations are at risk from flooding in the absence of adequate flood defences and other flood mitigation measures. Through the effects of climate change, these risks are set to grow.
RSK has a track record of combining engineering, environmental and economic skills to support decision makers in pre-empting and coping with the complex risks associated with flooding. We provide flood risk assessments and drainage impact studies for small sites to those requiring major basin-wide studies ahead of significant infrastructure developments. Our civil engineers coordinate all plans and designs with our in-house ecologists, landscape designers and geotechnical engineers to provide the most appropriate, integrated service for your site.
