Sustainable urban drainage systems (SUDS) are an attempt to understand, control and reduce the risks associated with surface water run-off. With the threat of climate change and the increasing amount of hard landscaping, the aim of SUDS is to mimic natural conditions as much as possible by controlling run-off on a development site.

SUDS also act to minimise the impact on existing drainage networks as well as looking to improve the aesthetic quality of a development and increase biodiversity. We design our projects using a variety of SUDS components such as on-site attenuation, rainwater harvesting, retention ponds and swales, for both new-build schemes and retrofitted projects.

Successful SUDS implementation requires an multi-disciplinary approach. We work closely with our design team partners to design sustainable systems in accordance with National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) requirements and design principles set out by organisations such as CIRIA and HR Wallingford.
