Flood Risk Management

Flood risk is present in many forms and affects a large portion of the global population. Binnies works to understand catchment processes at the macro and micro levels in order to advise on and deliver solutions that are sustainable for communities and the environment. Our wide portfolio of water-management, environmental and economic capabilities means that we are ideally placed to support you, whatever your needs.

We are part of major flood risk delivery frameworks for the Environment Agency, Cyfoeth Naturiol Cymru/Natural Resources Wales and the Oifig na nOibreacha Poiblí/Office of Public Works (Ireland), for which we are analysing issues, engaging with stakeholders, developing solutions, delivering funding justifications and designing for the largest and most complex flood-risk problems. We also work on smaller and more intricate schemes to restore rivers, develop wetlands and enhance the environment.

Our wider flood risk management services include

  • flood risk modelling and hydrology
  • business-case development
  • flood and coastal erosion risk management (FCERM) funding support
  • landscape visioning
  • delivery-services support
  • social and stakeholder engagement
  • river restoration and wetlands creation
  • catchment-based solutions.

More than this, though, our flood risk management skills remain firmly part of the wider skills capabilities of Binnies. We endeavour to avoid working in silos, thus ensuring that all of our wider water-management, environmental, asset-management and advisory services staff regularly deliver work for our flood-risk clients and ensuring effective knowledge sharing and smart working.

Binnies’ wide portfolio of work means that we understand the drivers of diverse stakeholders and look to ensure that their needs are met in the development of solutions and the delivery of schemes, whoever is promoting them and whatever complex funding needs exist. Our team includes nationally recognised experts who have developed guidance for sharing their expertise and supporting the delivery of sustainable solution across the globe.

The need to build communities and an environment that are resilient to flood risk is crucial to our approach. We offer a full suite of catchment services that includes engagement and working with specific interest groups such as the farming community through to the delivery of construction for addressing flood-risk matters.

Our capabilities react to your needs to ensure that our clients get effective, honest and sustainable advice in all situations.
