HydroSpatial are experienced in a range of hydrologic and hydraulic modelling software packages.

Our team have specialised skills in various hydrologic and hydraulic computational modelling platforms that are used to quantify flood behaviour, including TUFLOW, HEC-RAS, WBNM, DRAINS, RORB, XP-RAFTS, and MIKE 11 / MIKE FLOOD. Through these hydrologic and hydraulic modelling platforms, we can apply a range of different modelling methodologies such as direct-rainfall modelling, rainfall-runoff modelling, and one-dimensional and two-dimensional (independent or integrated) modelling. The scale of flood modelling projects that we deliver range from site-specific flood assessments to catchment-wide flood assessments.

Catchment-Wide Studies

We have experience in all stages of the floodplain risk management process at a catchment-wide level. From Flood Studies to Floodplain Risk Management Studies (FRMS), and Floodplain Risk Management Plans (FRMP), we can progress a project through the process from start to finish.

The benefits gained by the community from these studies often include improved emergency response plans that assist the SES in prioritising actions during a flood event, structural works to reduce flood levels and/or velocities prioritised on an objective scale, planning for future land use that takes into account where flood risk is located and much more.

Site-Specific Studies

We offer a range of services for site-specific flood assessments, particularly for sites which are identified as having flood related development controls within their Section 149(2) Certificate. These include Scoping Studies, Flood Studies and Flood Impact Assessments.

Through these assessments, property owners that are planning to undertake construction on their property can be provided with the information that they need to ensure that their building is flood resilient. Buildings constructed with flood resilience in mind can reduce or prevent the potential future financial costs incurred from flood damage to property.
