Sustainable Drainage Systems

Explore our Range of Solutions for Achieving Sustainable Drainage

Reduce and manage flood risk through drainage strategy and design.

As areas become increasingly developed and urbanised, the natural runoff of surface water is restricted. Sustainable drainage systems, also known as ‘SuDS’ are the best and most environmentally friendly way to manage surface water.

For major commercial developments or the build of 10 or more homes, a comprehensive drainage strategy is required for planning. In many cases, even minor developments should take drainage into consideration at the planning stage.

RAB have the specialist tools and industry expertise to help you to achieve the most appropriate sustainable drainage system for your development and meet the necessary planning requirements.

Our Sustainable Drainage Services

drainage design

Our expert team will help you to develop a strategy that delivers the four pillars of sustainable drainage systems. Ensure you meet the planning requirements for your project with an environmentally friendly drainage strategy from RAB.


As part of a detailed drainage design, the ultimate discharge point may require consent or a permit. RAB have experience obtaining such permits from relevant Lead Local Flood Authorities, Internal Drainage Boards and even the Environment Agency. We can also help to negotiate adoption agreements with local water companies post-development.


Our team of specialist engineers have many years of experience helping to design both conventional piped foul sewer networks and even bespoke solutions. We can also assist with the transfer of responsibility for foul sewerage systems to a local company following completion.
