The built environment is a dynamic ecosystem that constantly faces challenges from both natural and man-made elements. One such challenge, particularly in urban settings, is surface water management. This has given rise to the development and use of Sustainable Drainage Systems (SuDS), a holistic approach that mitigates flood risks and ensures efficient water management. But how can specifiers, architects, and urban planners get a comprehensive understanding of SuDS surfacing solutions? Enter Addagrip Terraco’s CPD presentation on the subject, led by Specification Manager, Mark Wilmot.
Traditional drainage solutions have often focused on the swift removal of water, leading it away from our urban environments as quickly as possible. However, this approach can lead to numerous issues downstream, such as overloading the sewage system, polluting natural waterways, and even increasing the risk of flooding. SuDS provides a more sustainable approach by slowing the flow of water, treating it naturally, and allowing for infiltration or controlled release.
Earlier this year, the UK Government announced that they were progressing with the implementation of Schedule 3 to the Flood and Water Management Act 2010. Essentially, it’ll be a requirement from 2024, which makes now the perfect time to book your CPD!
