About Morton-Roberts


Morton-Roberts is a firm of civil engineering consulting engineers based in Cardiff. We serve the South Wales, Bristol, Bath, Swindon, Cheltenham and Gloucester area although for expert witness work we cover the whole of England and Wales.

We specialise in the investigation, analysis and design of drainage, land drainage and sewerage systems. Please see below or contact us for further details.

Drainage Design Services

A complete list of all our areas of work is given on our home page and briefly our main areas of operation are as follows:

•  River Modelling. We would normally use Flood Modeller Pro or TUFLOW software for river modelling although we can use HEC-RAS software if required.

•  Hydrology including the estimation of watercourse flows using Flood Estimation Handbook methods.

•  Expert Witness Services. We are able to offer the services of one of our senior staff as an expert witness in the sewerage and drainage area of civil engineering.

•  Flood Risk Assessments, for use in England and a similar document Flood Consequence Assessments, for use in Wales. Both these reports assess the flood risk to a proposed development itself and also the change in flood risk to third parties as a result of the new development.

•  Drainage for New Developments.  Preliminary and detail design of drainage for new 'green' and 'brown' field developments including both foul and surface water systems. The latter is likely to involve using SUDS (Sustainable Drainage System) techniques.

Our Software

To enable us to carry out the types of work outlined above we have a range of drainage design and analysis software which is summarised on our Drainage Design and Analysis Software page and also listed below.

•  FEH (Flood Estimation Handbook)
•  Micro Drainage: Source Control,
        System 1 and Simulation modules
•  Flood Modeller Pro (formerly ISIS)
                              (River Modelling)
•  TUFLOW (River Modelling)
•  HEC-RAS (River Modelling)
•  AutoCAD Civil 3D
