Identifying the Value: Retrofitting SuDS in Urban Landscapes

On Demand Webinar

As the pressures of urban growth and climate change continue to pinch our urban centres, the calculation of return-on-investment and financial viability for long-term resilience strategies will become an essential element for infrastructure management.   

This webinar in partnership with Arcadis will focus on the financial benefits associated with a long-term commitment to retrofitting SuDS in our urban landscapes, plus the influence of design and location on the overall value to communities and the environment.  

Learn how Arcadis in partnership with Thames Water, the Environment Agency, Transport for London and several London Borough Councils have enabled the formation of a solid foundation for CAPEX estimation and the calculation of natural capital value that has led to securing £750k of investment in SuDS retro-fit projects.    

The webinar will focus on providing practical insight into the following areas of the work: 

  • Project context  
  • Utilising / adapting existing ICM 1D models  
  • Challenges in using detailed 1D-2D integrated ICM models  
  • 2D only surface water ICM models  
  • Representing retrofit SuDS 'features' in 1D and 2D ICM models  
  • Evaluating flood damages & 'benefits' of SuDS  
  • Selecting optimal sites / communities for investments in SuDS retrofit 
  • Discussion around lessons learnt 
  • Where next
