South Gloucestershire Council commissioned Metis to assess the carbon impacts of public realm improvement and programmed road maintenance activities to help them achieve their goal of carbon neutrality by 2030.
Between 2019 and 2020 Metis Consultants and Awa Environmental collaborated to deliver eleven large urban stormwater models in the United Kingdom. The case study draws together lessons learned and how NZ / UK could use each other’s experiences – including how the ongoing three waters reforms could benefit from similar approaches in the UK and the implementation of national modelling standards.
There is wide industry agreement that Water Sensitive Design (WSD) / Sustainable Drainage Systems (SuDS) are essential parts of the urban drainage system to manage water quality and quantity. However, despite these approaches being common practice for more than 10yrs, there is limited knowledge around the long-term operational costs of these features.
Having supported Sutton in securing Environment Agency Grant in Aid funding, Metis were commissioned to develop WSUD designs on seven school sites and one council site, to mitigate flooding to over 100 properties and deliver environmental benefits.
The park originally flooded after heavy rainfall causing damage to residential properties around and downstream of the park. Metis gained funding for and designed the Newton Park West Flood Storage Area and River Restoration Scheme.
Following Metis’ assistance in creating their flood risk asset register in 2014, Metis was commissioned by Hounslow to provide regular Lead Local Flood Authority support in progressing their duties under the Flood and Water Management Act (2010).
Following a series of flooding incidents in the Birches Industrial Estate in East Grinstead, Metis were commissioned to investigate the causes of the flooding, undertake options appraisal and detailed design of a preferred option, before leading the procurement phase and contract administration during construction.
