23 11 2017

The Stilwell Partnership were pleased to have the opportunity to work with BCI Studio architects on the White Cottage development project for AMCO homes in Woking.  The development is now under construction.

Our Drainage Strategy identified a solution to deal with the foul and surface water from the site.  The foul water would be drained by gravity into the nearby public sewer.

The site has no history of flooding and our drainage solution would have to ensure that there was no increased risk of surface water flooding from the development.  Discharge into an adjacent drainage ditch was permitted but at a restricted “greenfield” rate.

The Drainage Strategy considered the SuDS hierarchy and selected the best option based on a geotechnical investigation of the local ground conditions.

Using MicroDrainage calculations, infiltration through the porous paving into the ground was utilised to take surface water run-off.

Our contribution ensured that the development can be satisfactorily drained and not increase the likelihood of flooding from intensive rainfall events.
