Sandgate Rd Flood Hazard Risk Review

Risk2Project No. 6524

The BE Collective team was recently commissioned to provide consultancy services regarding the identification and analysis of potential chemical related flood risks for a service station on Sandgate Road.

Through the use of a risk analysis chart we identified the key potential risk was the buoyancy of the underground fuel tanks. Considering the site was placed in a relatively flood prone area, the buoyant tanks presented a serious danger if water levels suddenly rose.

With this in mind we designed concrete sleepers which would counter the buoyancy of the tanks in the case of a flooding event, as well as providing solutions to the other problems identified.
