With climate change projections and increasing storm frequency and intensity, the planning requirements for sustainable drainage (SuDS) and natural flood management solutions will only expand. It is necessary that those designing drainage plans and carrying out related groundworks and installation of blue-green infrastructure understand how they work and where to implement them.
The University of Hull and its partners will talk through the main points you need to know about these types of measures and what the EA and local authorities will be needing from their framework contractors. We will explain the work the University has done to better understand these types of drainage solutions and how your business can get involved. We will share our expertise around the opportunities that exist for your business to grow your involvement and understanding of this market. There will also be a discussion of the role of SME in this market and case studies to demonstrate the opportunity that is presented by these developments in flood resilience and an opportunity to ask questions directly of our contributing speakers.
Topics to be discussed:
Alan Wood & Partners
Energy and Environment Institute, University of Hull
