We will assess, design and supervise your flood alleviation and erosion protection projects

Riverside and coastal sites are naturally at a higher risk of flooding. To protect infrastructure, homes and livelihoods, these areas often integrate solutions engineered to minimise and prevent flooding, even to prevent the failure of structures due to erosion and historic damage.

Whether new flood assets need to be constructed or existing assets improved, repaired or maintained, RAB can help. We will inspect your riverside or coastal site and assess the flooding problem, identify the solution required and consider all green (natural methods such as willow faggots) and grey (hard engineered) options, before recommending the most suitable solution, to fit with the available budget for the site.

Our experienced team can also provide detailed designs, oversee construction and even arrange to inspect your assets in the future, ensuring they continue to provide effective flood alleviation and erosion protection for years to come. We develop a policy, strategy and register for continued asset maintenance, reducing reactive maintenance and future spending.
