Flood Protection

Temperatures hit the nineties later on in June and any thoughts of flooding were probably in the back of most peoples minds. However there have been some very heavy outbreaks of rain across the UK which has been a worry for those whose homes were flooded in July 2007.

Work carried on in the hot weather as surveyors battled with undergrowth at a cement works in Rugby. The work was carried out for a flood risk assessment on Sow Brooke which runs through the works.

The base slab for the PassivHaus at Barton-on-the-Heath was completed and the preformed concrete panels that make up the walls were slotted into place. Storm Geomatics were responsible for the setting out of the slab and were pleased (and relieved!) to hear that the last panel went in with 5mm to spare.

Surveyors also carried out additional work at Bourton-on-the-Water, which provided an accurate topographical survey on which to design a new swale around a pinch-point on the Windrush.

Finally a lake survey was carried out for a TSA member company. The purpose of the survey was to ascertain whether the lake was deep enough to install a coiled pipe on the bed which would be used in a heat exchange system.
