Flood Risk Assessment (FRA) Report

What does it solve?

The FloodSmart Report is a flood risk report designed to assess risks to a property or business for locations within Flood Zone 1 (low probability). The assessment includes flooding from all sources.

Our consultants assess available data to determine the level of risk based on professional judgement and years of experience.

The report provides clear and pragmatic advice regarding the nature and potential significance of flood hazards which may be present.

They are the most cost effective way to meet local authority planning conditions.

If your site falls outside of Flood Zone 1 or requires more detailed assessment, our FloodSmart Plus and Pro reports provide more complex flood risk analysis, detailing alternative options and designs.
