Our Expertise

The water environment is now recognised as a key facet of the wider environment in which we live and is accorded increasing value as part of the planning appraisal process.

SYSTRA provides the water environment chapter for formal Environmental Impact Assessments or Statements, which covers aspects including flood risk, water quality and water resource, drainage strategies and Flood Risk Assessments.

SYSTRA also offers a range of environmental services to complement our highway and infrastructure design skills. We can provide bespoke advice on transport related air quality / noise including DMRB Air Quality Assessment / ADMS Air Quality Dispersion Modelling and calculation of road traffic noise / CADNA-A mapping of road traffic noise and noise monitoring and assessment.

We also use the widely accepted DMRB Screening Model to quickly determine the potential scale of air quality impacts and offer the more comprehensive Atmospheric Dispersion Modelling System (ADMS-Roads) tool when required in areas of poor air quality, particularly in designated Air Quality Management Areas (AQMAs).
