Client: Woolgar Hunter

Services: Flood Risk Assessment

Surface was commissioned to undertake a Flood Risk Assessment for the erection of an office block in Glasgow city centre, close to the River Clyde.

Surface undertook consultation with Glasgow City Council to confirm the requirements for Flood Risk Assessment.

The Flood Risk Assesment utilised flood modelling for the River Clyde and concluded tidal flood risk could be mitigated through raising finished floor levels.

The planning application was approved by Glasgow City Council, adopting recommendations from the Flood Risk Assessment.
