Water management systems – optimised design, engineered to last
GEOlight® geocellular storage from SDS was the obvious choice for the water management solution designed by Ulrich Groenewald of the engineering project team from AECOM, in coordination with SDS. We were able to work with the architect to deliver a drainage design that satisfied regulations and reflected our analysis of what rainfall we might expect.

Having reviewed our requirements, SDS took the initiative to design and value engineer a bespoke system, enabling us to pass on significant savings to our client. Their innovative design involved several stages of surface water treatment and was crucial to securing planning approval from the Council and the Environment Agency.

SDS played a crucial role in designing a bespoke SuDS solution for this substantial development. As we continue to take on further rail development projects, we will be turning to SDS for their invaluable knowledge and expertise in this specialist and increasingly important sector.

By master-planning and installing necessary infrastructure at the very beginning, we have future-proofed our community at Berewood, making it more resilient to the horrid weather we have seen recently. The result is that in spite of the worst rainfall for 150 years the land at Berewood has never looked drier.
John Beresford, Development Director, Grainger plc.
SDS was instrumental in securing planning approval by designing a bespoke SuDS solution that was able to meet stringent discharge rates; through the prevention of flooding, by using source control techniques to manage the run-off from the site, any impact on the receiving watercourses is kept to an absolute minimum.
Matthew Richardson, Engineering Consultant, AECOM
We were really impressed with how the project came together at quite some speed despite the prevailing conditions. We are pleased with the result and the plant is working efficiently.
