Hillview, Perth & Kinross

Client: J. McCallum

Services: Flood Risk Assessment and Flood Modelling


Project Overview/ Summary: Surface was commissioned to undertake a Flood Risk Assessment for the erection of one dwelling adjacent to Kinnaird Burn near Perth.  Surface undertook consultation with Perth & Kinross Council to confirm the requirements for flood modelling.

Hydrographs were generated in ReFH software.

A 1D flood model was developed in Flood Modeller software which demonstrated that the proposed development would be safe during the 1:200 year flood event plus an allowance for climate change.

The planning application was permitted by Perth & Kinross Council, adopting recommendations from the Flood Risk Assessment.
