Flood risk management
Ramboll provides an integrated service in all aspects of flood risk management and design. Our highly experienced engineers and scientists provide innovative, robust solutions to the challenges posed by river and surface water management, and can successfully steer projects through planning and regulatory requirements.
We help our clients mastermind their planning to satisfy the EU Floods Directive and quantify their risk and exposure to flooding. We offer innovative, cost-effective solutions for these and other climate change-related challenges.
An integrated service
Ramboll's flood risk management and climate adaptation teams offer high quality integrated services for all stages of a project — from initial studies and options appraisals to cost-effective design solutions, regulatory approvals and ongoing assessment after completion. We assess flooding potential from all sources, including coastal waters, rivers, surface water, groundwater, and man-made structures such as reservoirs, overland flow, site drainage and public sewers.
Our engineers have an in-depth understanding of how flooding can affect a development and we clearly communicate flood risks to clients and project design team members. This ensures that, in close cooperation with our landscape architects, traffic planners, road and tunnel engineers, biologists, geologists, geographers, economists etc., flood risks are understood, fully assessed and appropriately mitigated, and that the full potential of a site is maximized.
Our clients include cities, utility companies, developers, private land owners, property managers, investors and insurers. We provide services to government's Environment Agencies and to local authorities and county councils.
