Client: Keen Partnership.
Development: The conversion of a mixed-use development of housing and commercial property, to two floors of newly reconfigured flats in place of the commercial property.
Work undertaken by Stomor: Flood Risk Assessment.
The Environmental Agency’s Flood Maps outline the concern surrounding flood risk for the site at St. Rule Street, with Flood Zone 3a generally referring to an around 1:100 likelihood of flooding at a site. Stomor undertook detailed modelling and analysis to determine the actual risk for the site in question, before determining a number of potential resilience measures that could be outlined to enable safe and acceptable residence on the site, allowing the passage of planning permissions.
