Who Are We?

We Specialise

Hello and welcome. My name is Phil and I lead the team at Flood Risk Consulting Limited. We are a civil engineering consultancy that specialises in flood risk, preparing flood risk assessments and drainage assessments in Northern Ireland in accordance with PPS15 Planning and Flood Risk.




We Care

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 I will look after it personally. I have three degrees, including a PhD in hydraulics, have published several journal and conference papers and am a Chartered Civil Engineer. I have over 20 years experience in flooding and have worked with Rivers Agency on numerous large scale flood alleviation schemes across the country. This means we will achieve the best possible result for you.




We Deliver

We have obtained planning permission when other consultancies have failed and always maximise the area 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. This is why numerous architects, planning consultants and civil engineers across Northern Ireland use us and why we have yet to fail in obtaining planning permission for any of our projects.

What We Do

Flood Risk Assessments (FRA)

Required when submitting a planning application in Northern Ireland for development in an area at risk of flooding. We have produced countless FRA's over the years. Our extensive range of software, specialist expertise and close working relationship with Rivers Agency all ensure that we will produce the optimal results for your project.

Coastal Flood Risk Assessments (CFRA)

Flood Risk Consulting is one of only a few consultancies in Northern Ireland with the expertise necessary to successfully conduct CFRAs in accordance with PPS 15. This will ensure you do not need to be over conservative in your design of road and finished floor levels within your developments.


Drainage Assessments (DA)

Required by PPS 15 if the proposed development comprises 10 or more dwelling units, exceeds one hectare or involves a change of use exceeding 1000 square metres. We produce DAs for a range of clients and have the experience to produce cost effective reports which will satisfy Rivers Agency and minimise necessary mitigation measures.

Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems (SUDS)

If your development will increase the hard standing area of the site, Rivers Agency and/or NI Water may require you to throttle storm discharge rates. We will provide you with effective SuDS design work that will be tailored to the specific layout of your proposed development.

Give With Us

We are all touched when we learn about the plight of those around the world less fortunate than us. That is why Flood Risk Consulting Limited has teamed up with Tearfund to help make a difference. Tearfund has the mission goal to respond to disasters when they occur and to work in the places of greatest poverty. If you appoint us for your project, we guarantee to give at least 20% of the fee to Tearfund's Water and Sanitation Fund.  You will receive a receipt of the donation and the money will be used by Tearfund to help the poorest, most vulnerable and most marginalised to gain access to safe water and basic sanitation.
