SuDS Design

Sustainable Drainage Systems (SuDS) mimic nature and typically manage rainfall close to where it falls. SuDS can be designed to transport and slow (attenuate) the run-off of surface water before it reaches a watercourse.  SuDS provide areas to store water in natural contours and can be used to allow water to soak (infiltrate) into the ground.

WCI design and construct innovative and sympathetic SuDS employing features including soakaways, swales, geocellular storage crates, attenuation and flow controls, detention and infiltration basins and wetlands.

Flood Risk Assessment

Flood risk is a key consideration in the development process receiving increased levels of attention from both planning authorities and local communities.  The National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) requires all development proposals in flood risk areas to be supported by a site-specific Flood Risk Assessment which sets out the acceptability of different types of development in flood risk areas.  Development in flood risk areas is contentious and in some cases the chance of a successful outcome can be low. We will always give you an honest opinion on the viability of your development in flood risk terms at the outset

Our professional engineers are experienced in assisting developers with flood risk issues and producing flood risk assessment reports to support development.

Sewage Treatment Plant Design

While the selection of a septic tank or a sewage treatment plant might seem simple, every system should be specified according to the particular requirements of the property.  Like most parts of a property, the installation or repair of sewage systems, surface water systems and drainage represents a significant investment of time and money.  Once installed, the chosen system will be expected to perform every day for decades so its important to get the design and specification of the system correct.

WCI has 35 years of experience in the selection and specification of sewage treatment plants.  We have hands-on experience of most makes and models of all sizes.  We design treatment solutions for a wide range of applications ranging from housing, caravan & camping, hotels & restaurants, educational facilities, industrial sites and many more.

Pumping Station Design

Pumping stations are used for a multitude of reasons including the transfer of raw sewage, treated effluent, stormwater, potable water and industrial processes.  Once installed, the chosen system will be expected to perform every day for decades so its important to get the design and specification of the system correct.

WCI has 35 years of experience in the selection and specification of adoptable and private pumping stations.  We have hands-on experience of many types of pumps and pumping stations used in a wide range of applications.  We design wet- and dry-wells for a range of duties and requirements using progressive and submersible pumps.

Call 01984 623404 today to discuss your pumping station requirements.

Environmental Permitting

WCI have handled hundreds of Environmental Permit applications and we have an intimate understanding of the Environmental Permitting Regulations, General Binding Rules, Water and Groundwater Frameworks and the National Planning Policy Framework.

We provide honest advice and support with preparing environmental permit applications as well as undertaking a comprehensive design and permitting service.
