At GCA we provide solutions for storm and foul sewerage design. These range from a simple gravity fed sewerage network to the feasibility and design of pumping stations and balancing facilities to determine peak flows.

Our Engineers keep abreast of current design philosophies to achieve optimum solutions in terms of SUDS (Sustainable Urban Drainage Solutions) drainage solutions and adopt the latest balancing techniques to achieve Environment Agency and Water Authority approvals.

The Environment Agency recognises the damage caused by historic conventional drainage systems and advocates an approach that replicates, as far as is possible, natural systems. Sustainable drainage can offer cost effective solutions which are easy to manage, attractive and resilient to use.

Early discussions with the drainage authorities are essential to fix agreed solutions and optimise preliminary costings, an area often overlooked at project feasibility stage.
