Calculate Soakaway Size for Effective Water Management

Anyone who works in civil engineering or construction knows that effective water management is an essential aspect of any development project. By efficiently managing excess rainwater and preventing flooding or waterlogging, soakaways help to relieve strain on existing water infrastructure whilst also protecting the surrounding environment. This is why soakaway calculations are so important to...

Suds Reports

In urban planning and development, managing surface water runoff is a crucial aspect to prevent flooding and environmental degradation. One effective tool employed for this purpose is a Sustainable Urban Drainage System (SuDS) report with our drainage design consultants. A Sustainable Urban Drainage System (SuDS) report assesses and recommends strategies for efficiently managing surface water...

The Science of Soakaway Calculations in Civil Engineering - Onn Point

When it comes to civil engineering, the subtle intricacies of water management systems often remain unseen. However, they play a crucial role in averting flooding disasters and ensuring sustainable infrastructure. Among these critical systems, soakaway designs stand out, as they efficiently divert rainwater into underground reservoirs and mitigate the risks of surface flooding. Here at...

Meeting BRE365 Standards: A Guide to Sustainable Building Design - Onn Point

Environmental consciousness is becoming increasingly prominent, and as a result, sustainable building design has become a necessity. One of the core principles of sustainable construction is adhering to BRE365 standards, and if you’re a civil engineer, architect, property developer, or another occupation involved with building design, it’s essential you understand the facts behind BRE365 soakaway...

When designing Sustainable Urban drainage systems, engineers must first consider the discharge of surface water from impermeable areas into the ground in line with National Planning Practice Framework NPPF. Although it is possible to carry out desktop studies that will highlight if infiltration is feasible, on-site testing should be carried out to confirm this prior...

Drainage Strategy

In the past, detailed drainage strategies have been required for major developments (10 properties or more), however we are now seeing Local Planning Authorities (LPAs) request a more detailed design utilising the features of a SuDS report on smaller developments. While the exact methods may vary among LPAs, a standard drainage plan made by drainage...

Introduction When it comes to sustainable landscaping and effective stormwater management, attenuation swales have emerged as a popular solution. These natural and aesthetically pleasing features not only enhance the visual appeal of outdoor spaces but also help mitigate the negative impacts of stormwater runoff. In this blog, we will delve into the concept of attenuation...

Introduction: Drainage design plays a crucial role in the success and sustainability of civil engineering projects. From managing stormwater runoff to maintaining the integrity of infrastructure, a well-planned drainage strategy crafted by drainage design consultants is essential. In this article, we will delve into the concept of drainage strategy, its importance, and how it contributes...

Urban creep, also known as urban sprawl, is the gradual expansion of urban areas into previously rural or natural areas. This can have a significant impact on drainage design and soakaway design calculations, as it can increase the amount of impervious surface (such as paved roads and buildings) and reduce the amount of permeable surface...

Climate Change and its impact to drainage design

Climate change is one of the most pressing issues of our time, and its impact on drainage design, and also highway design, is becoming increasingly apparent. With rising temperatures and more intense rainfall events, traditional drainage systems are becoming less effective in managing water flow and preventing flooding. One of the main impacts of climate...
