Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems

Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems (SUDS) are innovative and eco-friendly approaches to managing rainwater and runoff in urban areas. These systems aim to mimic natural water processes, helping to reduce flooding, improve water quality, and enhance overall urban environmental sustainability.

Sustainable Urban Drainage systems

Our systems enable contractors to achieve their obligations under building regulations (H) more cost-effectively than using alternative solutions. Our systems also provide the additional benefits of developing green spaces for residents.

Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems (SUDS) are designed to mimic nature and typically manage rainfall close to where it drops. The systems are considered to be environmentally beneficial, causing minimal or no long-term detrimental damage.

We have tailored a range of Geosynthetic products specifically aimed at promoting and prolonging SUDS.

Often the most efficient and effective method of control is by installing infiltration and/or attenuation tanks, which act as slow-release reservoirs for surface water run-off.

SUDs solutions

Our range of products to reduce the impact of unwanted extreme weather conditions includes water management systems, attenuation tanks – which act as slow-release reservoirs for surface water run-off – and SUDS-compliant permeable paving.

We also offer pond liners, which include prefabricated membranes and geosynthetic clay liners (GCLs), as well as bespoke headwall furniture such as grills, handrails and safety chains. Our woven and non-woven geotextiles – more simply described as protection fleeces – are a popular solution that protects attenuation tanks and stops problematic cases of impermeable membranes becoming punctured.

Choosing a complete system from a single, trusted supplier – like Geoworks – helps to ensure an effective and sustainable drainage solution across the whole project.

Supporting tender bids

We’re an advocate of early engagement because if a Geoworks engineering manager is engaged at the tender stage, the impact on the savings to reduce time and money can also assist contractors in winning tenders.

Another benefit of early engagement is that geogrids can be manufactured to the exact width that the contractor needs, suiting the site-specific requirements and creating an even more cost-effective grid. Simply removing a longitudinal overlap in the geogrid layout can save a further 10 per cent in product costs alone. Small changes but big savings are available.

However, all isn’t lost if engagement comes afterwards as savings can still be introduced.
