- Property Flood Resilience Awareness for Asset Managers
While around 6 million properties in the UK are at risk of flooding, only around 20,000 of these properties have adequate resilience measures to help to protect the occupants and minimise damage to the property.
To help asset managers better understand their risk, and what potential action to take, the BRE Centre for Resilience has developed online awareness training for asset managers and building owners / operators. This provides information around the risks and preventative measures to make properties or estates more resilient. This is available here: https://bre.ac/
BRE Certification Scheme for Independent Flood Resilience Surveyors and supporting training
A key outcome from the DEFRA led Property Flood Resilience Action Plan was the requirement for standards, certifications and skills to provide reassurance that work has been done correctly and to a high standard.
To support this outcome, the BRE Centre for Resilience partnered with RICS to create a training course which addresses the fundamentals of flood resilience surveying, assessing flood risk and the specification of mitigation measures. This is available here: https://bre.ac/
Following completion of the training, there is the opportunity to become a BRE Certified Independent Flood Resilience Surveyor. You can apply for this soon…
