Flood experts Ambiental are profiled in the May issue of South East Business magazine, which praises the company’s innovative Flowroute software and looks at the history and future of one of the Centre’s largest and longest-running members.

Technical Director David Martin, who joined the fledgling company upon completing his BSc at the University of Sussex in 2005, talks South East Business through Ambiental’s growth – from the commercialisation of Founder Dr Justin Butler’s Flowroute code, to adding flood risk assessments, reports for homeowners and “catastrophe modelling” to their portfolio of products.

The article describes the business as “ground-breaking”, adding that “the amount of data Ambiental holds to support such a comprehensive system is staggering”.

“Our ambition is to map the world,” says David, “but only if we can do it to our usual high standard.”

Ambiental is a global specialist in flood modelling, flood risk, and climate change and natural hazard analytics.
