Water Management Solutions

The concept of sustainable water management is a major driver in the UK construction industry. Extreme rainfall events, driven by climate change, are becoming ever more frequent. In response, the Government has introduced legislation such as the Floods and Water Management Act 2010 which sets out ways to manage surface water via sustainable drainage systems (SuDS).

We have responded to this challenging market by leading the way, through our intelligently engineered, holistic water management solutions, which aid in the management of water from roof to river.

  • Source Control

    Source control techniques manage increased surface water discharge from developed sites, as close to the source as possible, minimising the volume of surface water discharge from a site. The c

  • Surface Water Management

    Surface water management involves dealing with potential flooding from sewers, drains and groundwater and the run-off from land, watercourses and ditches that can follow from heavy rainfall.

  • Flood Alleviation

    Flood alleviation is a planning requirement for all developments and must link in to the lead local flood authority's overall regional flood alleviation plan. Engineered SuDS solutions are inc

  • Rainwater Interception, Storage & Control

    Traditionally, rainwater has been collected within a below ground storage tank and released into the sewer in a controlled fashion. In recent years this has become more difficult because of th

  • Water Re-use

    Up to 80% of the water a commercial or public building consumes is used for non-potable applications such as toilet flushing, irrigation and evaporative cooling. Much of this could be provided

  • Water Storage for Evaporative Cooling

    Traditionally, intensive air conditioning units have been used to cool computer dense environments, however this method requires large amounts of energy and this has environmental and financia
