BioScapes – A unique, patented Sustainable Drainage System (SuDS) and Biodiversity Net Gain (BNG) solution in a single unit.

Home Innovation Partners BioScapes – A unique, patented Sustainable Drainage System (SuDS) and Biodiversity Net Gain (BNG) solution in a single unit.

The SuDS and BNG planter is specifically designed for both domestic and commercial properties to manage rainwater run-off, and support BNG by integrating ten wildlife habitats.

The climate crisis is affecting us all with flooding damaging our homes and businesses and water pollution impacting our health and economy. During a rainstorm, water running from roofs, pavements and parking areas can quickly result in flooding and contamination of watercourses with pollutants.

It is clear that adding natural features can address these issues by soaking up rainfall to reduce flooding, and filtering run-off to improve water quality. Wildlife-rich greenspaces also create beautiful and inspiring places where people want to live and work. This year, new legislation will place requirements on developers, businesses and local government to take steps to manage climate impacts and restore the natural world. Biodiversity Net Gain (BNG) requirements expect that all new developments will generate at least a 10% uplift in biodiversity, while Sustainable Drainage Systems (SuDS) require that hard surfaces manage additional run-off.

The legislation will also require that SuDS also improve water quality as well as the amenity and biodiversity value of open spaces. Decision makers need simple and cost-effective ways to deliver these expectations and at BioScapes we provide solutions.

The BioScapes® SuDS & BNG Unit captures and holds water during storm events, helping to reduce the flow rate and input to the drainage network, subsequently lessening the risk of flooding and pressure leading to Combined Sewer Overflow discharges (CSOs) which pollute our waterways. Utilising biodiverse habitats and natural soils, our unit will assist with improving water quality in our streams and rivers by filtering rainwater before it enters sewers, and due to integrated habitats, encourages wildlife in any outdoor space creating a healthier, more sustainable environment, for everyone to enjoy.

Sustainable Drainage Systems (SuDS) are a way of managing rainwater that mimics natural processes. SuDS & BNG Units provide a quick and cost-effective solution to deliver biodiversity, sustainable drainage, community and well-being benefits.
