Who we are

Flood Risk Consulting is a civil engineering consultancy that specialises in flood risk, preparing flood risk assessments in Northern Ireland and drainage assessments in Northern Ireland in accordance with PPS15 Planning and Flood Risk.

Larger consultancies will hand your project over to one of their graduate engineers, who probably won’t have the necessary experience to get you the best result. At Flood Risk Consulting, your project is important to us and so our director Dr Philip Hull will be responsible for your project from start to finish. Philip has three degrees, including a PhD in hydraulics, has published several journal and conference papers and is a Chartered Civil Engineer. He has over 20 year experience in flooding and has worked with Rivers Agency on numerous large scale flood alleviation schemes across the country.

Due to our expertise and investment in software that most other consultancies don’t have, we have obtained planning permission where other consultancies have failed and always maximise the size of a site that can be developed.

As a small company we can offer extremely competitive fixed price quotations, with no nasty ‘add ons’ later in the project. We will meet your deadline, working into the small hours if necessary and we genuinely care about each project we work on. Finally, we go further than most other consultancies by providing preliminary surface water drainage designs in accordance with the SuDS Manual and prepare the necessary paperwork to obtain permission to discharge surface water from your site. This is why numerous planning consultants, architects and civil engineers across Northern Ireland use us and why we have yet to fail in obtaining planning permission for any of our projects. Don’t risk paying over the top or incurring additional add-on costs, missing your deadline, losing parts of your site to pluvial and fluvial flooding or being left with paperwork to obtain permission to discharge surface water from your site; use Flood Risk Consulting because we specialise, we care and we deliver.

We would love to hear from you if you have a query regarding a project you are working on or require a free quotation. Please contact us at any time.
