Climate Change Adaptation
Use water as part of urban greening and CO2 reduction on your development
Protect your Development using Nature Based Solutions
Increases in temperature and the variability of precipitation are having an immense impact on the urban environment. It is now more critical than ever that we identify these changes and adapt our developments to our uncertain future.
Water management is a critical factor that will define the future reliance of cities and developments on climate change.
Here at Urban Water, we have collaborated with landscape designers and architects to create dynamic and living designs that apply mitigating strategies to offset the effects of climate change. We use our flood risk assessment expertise and share our applied knowledge to help you build landscape and community resilience.

Our Climate Change Adaptation Methodology
We work with developers, architects and communities to create, protect and restore ecosystems. We make use of native species and materials to ensure climate change mitigation and adaption for your project. Our work reflects our ethics and our commitment to a more sustainable and inclusive society. The government has provided climate change adaptation policies. Resources can also be found on the Climate Change Committee website.
Understand the local resources for the management of water and availability of space.
Work with architects to identify level of adaptation and carbon targets.
Use the building of external works to create multifunctional areas in which water is managed. Complete detailed design interventions and carbon footprint calculations.
We compare our designs in relation to other projects of a similar scale to ensure that the designs implemented are the most carbon efficient.
We create long standing partnerships with architects and developers.
