I. Initial assessment

It is essential to find out more about the territory and the needs of the property owner. For example, the requirements of an individual property owner will differ from expectations of a local government.

Typical problems we help to address are for example frequent flood damages,
water erosion, lack of water for agriculture and households or overheated urban areas. We usually schedule a Skype or WebEx online consultation.

An online session takes approximately 2 hours.
The outcome is a common understanding of both parties on their needs and options that exist to address the requirements.
The solution related materials are provided.

II. Detail assessment

Our personnel is dispatched for environmental due-diligence of the territory.

Photo documentation of the territory is taken. Where necessary, aerial analysis of the area leveraging unmanned plane will be utilized. We also gather additional information through a detailed questionnaire.

The outcome is an approximate estimate of the required water retention capacity of the area (approx. 20% accurate) and proposed next course of action.
A tailored, territory specific solution is designed and provided within a 5-20 pages document.

III. Implementation project

The project is based on inputs gathered in the detailed assessment phase. Its complexity depends on the requirements to be addressed and the size of the territory.

The project documentation covers a detailed analysis of the micro-river basins. Quantification of the rainwater volume is done per basin. The micro-basins are assigned priorities individually according to the local environment.

The most appropriate water retention measures are selected and combined from an existing catalog of over 5000 entries.

Each water retention measure type is documented in detail.

The outcome is complete project implementation documentation (PID) – including budget, visualization, pre-implementation monitoring and implementation scope options based on the available funding.

IV. Implementation supervision

We provide supervision during implementations to ensure the newly created water retention measures are going to be effective and functional.

It is optional to have the actual implementation done by an independent local construction company. When there is an external company involved, it is advisable to have construction supervision in place.

The quality of work is checked regularly during the implementation process.

Post-implementation monitoring of the territory is included.

The expected outcome is managerial report and photo documentation.

V. Ci2® compliance certification

 

Each territory is unique. This certification takes this fact into account and assesses compliance of the territory to the best practice of property management. The compliance ensures that the area as such is managed in the best possible way from water management and climatic impact perspective.

Aerial monitoring of the territory leveraging unmanned plane with custom built sensors is prerequisite for the assessment. Our proprietary algorithm evaluates the monitored parameters, quantifies each section of the territory and even indicate areas of future improvements.
Once the certificate has been successfully issued, it scientifically confirms that the territory has long-term sustainable water management and as such has a minimal negative impact on the climate.

Territory’s climate impact index is calculated, and certificate of compliance is issued.

The certification is valid for five years.

The territory is re-assessed after this period to ensure that the water retention mechanisms are working efficiently over time and sustainability is maintained.
