Cost Savings on Surface & Foul Water Drainage Solutions

We develop surface and foul water drainage strategies for many of our clients, for development sites ranging from single residential dwellings through to several hundred hectare mixed use urban extensions.

We have many examples of where we have saved our clients significant sums of money by challenging the stance of the regulatory authorities.

Our approach for surface water schemes is to minimise the storage required to comply with the relevant national and local policy and drainage law, thereby minimising capital expenditure.

Sometimes we are brought in late in the day to address the shortcomings of others based on our enviable track record. For example we were recently appointed by a retail client to re-negotiate surface water runof rates with the Environment Agency. In doing so we successfully reduced the storage required saving the client an estimated £250k of capital expenditure.

Likewise, we can challenge water utility company foul water requirements. Sucess at a recent Appeal avoided the need for the downstream sewer network reinforcements called for by the water company and estimated at £1.7 million.

By calculating likely foul water discharge rates from a major new housing development we saved the housebuilder an estimated £150k by re-negotiating the connection point into the existing public sewer network.
