CIRIA is the Construction Industry Research and Information Association.
They are a neutral, independent and not-for-profit body that link organisations with common interests and facilitate a range of collaborative activities that help improve the industry.
CIRIA have developed a new free guidance tool which makes assessing the benefits of Sustainable Drainage Systems (SuDS) easier without the need for full scale economic inputs.
This guidance tool follows a simple structure that begins with a screening and qualitative assessment to identify the benefits to evaluate further.
Support is then provided to help quantify and monetise each benefit.
On completion of the evaluation, the tool provides a series of graphs and charts that present the benefits based on Ecosystems Services (ESS) and Triple Bottom Libe (TBL) criteria.
