Urban Flood Resilience Dissemination Events – 14th Sep ’17

This is a free dissemination workshop for the Urban Flood Resilience: Property Flood Resilience Database project, and will be held in at the BRE Innovation Park, Watford. This is one of three workshops, with alternative locations in Liverpool and Ravenscraig (nr Motherwell) – see below for dates and booking.

With 6 million UK homes already at risk of flooding, property owners facing difficulties getting adequate insurance, and property level flood resilience currently going undocumented there is a wide scope for improving on the current situation.

A collaboration between BRE, Lexis Nexis, AXA and Liverpool City Council on urban flood resilience data integration has resulted in the Property Flood Resilience Database (PFR-d); a means for quantifying property level resilience based on the building and the resilience measures taken. A full summary of the project is available by clicking here.

Come along to one of our workshops to find out more about UK flood risk and the roles of insurers, councils, property owners and databases.

To attend this workshop, you can register at: www.bre.co.uk/eventdetails.jsp?id=15334

The workshops will provide an overview of flood risk data, property flood resilience and flood insurance within the UK.  You will learn how all these elements have been brought together within the PFR-d to provide a means for assessing property flood resilience.
