Urban Flood Resilience - This event has already finished
With 6 million UK homes at risk of flooding property owners facing difficulties getting adequate insurance, and property level flood resilience currently 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.
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...
The workshop 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 wihin the PFR-d to provide a means for assessing property flood resilience.
Talks from BRE, AXA, Lexis Nexis and Liverpool City Council on:
- Property flood resilience
- Data-set integration within the PFR-d
- Insurance and flood resilience
- Local authorities and flood resilience
- Demonstration of the PFR-d tool and information on the property level surveyor training and certification schemes
