Mott MacDonald has released this fly-through showing plans for a £15M flood protection scheme in Stonehaven in Scotland.
On behalf of Aberdeenshire Council, the project will provide Stonehaven with one in 200-year flooding protection from the River Carron.
Mott MacDonald is designing flood walls and embankments using 2D hydraulic modelling to verify flood levels, as well as undertaking ground investigations and environmental surveys.
Building information modelling is also being used.
Mott MacDonald project director Stephen Knight said: “We have been improving the efficiency of the initial concept design by reducing piling requirements, overall material volumes and simplifying construction requirements.
“Working with statutory bodies, we are aiming to minimise the impact on the watercourse during construction by maintaining part of the existing river channel where possible.”
Stonehaven has a long history of flooding, with the most recent event in December 2012.
The flood protection scheme is due to be completed in 2018.
