Urban Surface Design

Designing surface water runoff in urban environments

Transport

Urban environments, by necessity, feature significant numbers of transport interchanges.  Increasingly, designs are moving from single hubs to integrated nodes that link different transportation systems and incorporate other facilities such as food and shopping outlets. 

With a prerequisite for these types of interchanges being efficiency of operation, it is essential that matters such as safety, security and environment are properly addressed.

 

The management of water is key in parking, collection and departure areas, and at critical entrance and exit points. ACO’s design team are experienced in helping create integrated drainage solutions for all types of urban transport.
