Flood and Weather

Helping to keep your business safe from floods and extreme weather

Flooding is a common and widespread natural source of damage to properties in the UK. Sources of flooding include rivers, coasts, surface water, drainage, groundwater and sewers. Serious damage can be caused to an organisation’s property, contents, production and its ability to trade. It’s important to assess the risks to your property, be prepared, and plan for any adverse weather including storms or floods. You can put measures in place to help minimise the damage and speed up recovery time.

Flood Risk Assessment


SLR Consulting utilise a range of flood data, including modelled flood data and a range of strategic studies commissioned principally to inform the planning system. Where data is available, insight can be provided on the likely risk of a property flooding in any given year, the severity of such a flood, and potentially the depth of floodwaters that might be expected. It is this information, together with a site inspection by one of their specialists that enables a report to be provided which recommends appropriate property specific flood management solutions.
