Francis Sant were recently commissioned to prepare a downloadFlood Consequence Assessment, in accordance with TAN 15, for the proposed new fire station at Trefechan, Aberystwyth. Due to its location near both the coast and to the river Rheidol, it was vital to know the flood risk for the new, highly vulnerable development.

Mitigation measures were then identified and incorporated into the design of the proposed building.
