Flood Management


We provide our expertise in flood risk management to help our clients understand and reduce environmental and other risks through effective planning and innovative thinking. We have the capability and experience to provide sound, reliable and innovative engineering advice for the most complex hydraulic problems.

Our river/watercourse expertise encompasses hydrodynamic, hydrological and hydraulic modelling, water quality modelling, sediment transport studies, hydraulic structures, tidal barriers, riverbed and bank protections, dredging, restoration and waterside development.

We undertake catchment flood strategies, drainage master plan studies, drainage impact assessments and flood risk assessments to develop and implement the most appropriate flood protection schemes.
Atkins carries out feasibility studies, investigations, design and implementation of structural and non-structural solutions for all potential flood risk scenarios developed through the catchment based flood risk assessment studies.

Flood Risk Assessments (FRA’s) are now becoming an essential part of most planning applications within Ireland. We provide clients with expert technical advice on flood risk assessments for small and large developments to support the planning applications.
