What You Need to Know About the London Sustainable Drainage Proforma
If you have an upcoming development in the London area which requires a sustainable drainage...
The proposed development site was within a Flood Zone 1, with from no risk of flooding from any other sources. However, there was a low-to-medium risk of surface water flooding on parts of the site.
We provided various resilience and mitigation measures to ensure that the proposed development was not affected by this flooding.
The existing site was brownfield. However, our proposed solution followed the SuDS management train - in order to treat and slow down the peak rate of surface water run off. It also ensured that any surface water run off leaving the site was restricted, in line with the London Borough of Hillingdon's requirements, therefore satisfying the planning requirements and gaining consent for the client.
Nimbus Engineering Consultants Ltd, were then commissioned to carry out the detailed below ground foul and surface water drainage design. We were also tasked with the Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems design for this site in order to discharge the relevant planning conditions, as well as providing construction drawings.
“I have really enjoyed working with Nimbus. Sadia is extremely knowledgeable and is always willing to go out to her way to help clients. The speed at which Nimbus produce their work is impressive and the prices are extremely competitive. Special mention to Ryan Herity after we worked closely together on a couple of schemes. Always happy to pick up the phone and answer questions. He provided solutions that led to drainage officer approvals – you can’t ask any more than that!”
“I have used Nimbus Engineering Consultants for several years now. The service is second to none. Sadia effectively communicates throughout the entire process. Nimbus has never let me down. I would wholeheartedly recommend Nimbus for any and all SuDS advice. Nimbus shoot from the hip, and make my life easy, knowing if I have engaged them, I do not have to ever worry.”
“We’ve collaborated with Sadia on a few projects; Nimbus Engineering’s proposals were well-informed, attentive of regulatory trends and wrapped in proactive attitude.”
