SuDS can be used to enhance the overall appearance and character of the site whilst being more cost effective than conventional piped drainage. McCloy Consulting are industry leaders in the design of SuDS for both new development and retrofit schemes.
We approach SuDS from an urban design perspective and consider the opportunity for every space across the site to serve a drainage function to deliver a highly cost effective drainage scheme. Utilising SuDS correctly will make significant contributions to Biodiversity Net Gain which is referenced strongly in terms of planning policy making and development decision taking in NPPF 2018.
We are at the forefront of applying new and innovative thinking and have produced Fact Sheets which demonstrate how flows can be managed differently from Brownfield sites to provide greater benefit to downstream catchments.
We have an indepth knowledge of the requirements for adoption of SuDS in England having delivered training on the DCG to water companies throughout England and in Wales where we produced and delivered (in partnership with CIRIA) a training package to all Local Authorities acting as the SAB.
We provide a full range of services from an initial SuDS suitability assessment through to providing detailed drawings and calculations for submission to the Local Authority.
