Sustainable Drainage (SuDS) Design

PROJECT BRIEF

Having secured Environment Agency Grant in Aid funding, Metis were commissioned to develop SuDS designs on seven school sites and one council site, to mitigate flooding to over 100 properties and deliver environmental benefits.

  • Intensive stakeholder engagement to ensure project buy-in and secure partnership funding.
  • Integration of educational features in the SuDS.
  • Focus on delivering enhanced environments through improved amenity, biodiversity, aesthetics, air and water quality.
  • Engagement with contractors to create innovative yet buildable features.

PROJECT OUTCOMES

This project is delivering multiple benefits for Sutton:

  • Reduced level of flood risk for over 100 properties.
  • Vastly improved playground spaces for seven schools without any financial contribution.
  • Engaging educational features for school children.
  • Improved council office environment.
