What is a drainage system?
A drainage system uses a network of structures that is designed to help efficiently remove water from an area. They are normally made up of pipes, tunnels, trenches and chambers, but may also have retention ponds where water can be slowed down as it flows out.
By having a correctly designed drainage system, it will ensure that any excess water will drain into the local sewer system or into a water treatment facility. Drainage systems also ensure that areas are kept dry and safe for people to live and work in.
What is InfoDrainage?
InfoDrainage is a design and analysis solution that is used by many engineers, developers and authorities. This programme is used to do the following:
- Design and audit drainage systems in a quick and confident manner.
- Deliver sustainable, cost-effective, and compliant designs for drainage systems.
- To access a complete Building Information Modelling (BIM) solution.
What is InfoDrainage used for?
Designers, Developers and Engineers will use InfoDrainage to design, review and further approve drainage systems that are sustainable for the flow of water in specific areas. InfoDrainage was created to ensure that drainage systems can be designed in a clear, rich and confident manner.
InfoDrainage can be used to design new drainage systems, but it also has the capability to analyse and audit current drainage systems and see where improvements can be made.
What are the key features of InfoDrainage?
1. Sustainable and traditional design
You are able to create designs for both traditional and new sustainable drainage systems and ensure that they are compliant.
2. Real-life view
InfoDrainage is able to provide a real-life view of current drainage systems and newly designed systems, by showing the exact lengths and measurements of pipes.
3. Check project details quickly
The solution allows you to gain accurate data which can be used in other programmes, therefore reducing the amount of rework that needs to be done.
4. Analyse flows and flooding
InfoDrainage has built-in hydraulic analysis for pipes, manholes and more, which is able to help reduce the risk of flooding in areas.
5. Templated designs
There are a variety of pre-approved and compliant designs that are available on InfoDrainage. This makes the design process much easier as you can drag and drop templates where needed.
Drainage systems are one of the most important factors in areas where people live and work, but also in areas where flooding is more common. That’s why the use of InfoDrainage will allow you to design drainage systems that will eliminate flooding and create sustainable systems in all areas.
