Code for Sustainable Homes, Sheffield, South Yorkshire
Dec 4, 2014

RAB Consultants has completed a Code for Sustainable Homes (CSH) assessment in support of a residential development in Sheffield to achieve the CSH Level 3. The report considers SUR 1 – ‘Management of surface water’ and SUR 2 –‘Flood risk’.

No formal drainage plans were provided by the client for this development. Therefore a conceptual drainage design was developed by RAB Consultants to establish the requirement for on-site surface water storage. The report considers that the mandatory conditions within SUR 1 of the Code will be met if a formal drainage design is designed based on the conceptual design modelled in the report.

The assessment also concluded that the flood risk to this site is appropriate for achieving the two maximum credits available under SUR 2.
