Is Britain flood ready? A flood resilience event for business

BITC-BRE

A flood resilience event for business

During Responsible Business Week, Business in the Community’s The Prince’s Business Emergency Resilience Group (BERG) in collaboration with the Building Research Establishment, the UK’s premier multi-disciplinary building science centre, and Adler and Allan Limited, a key partner of the Government’s Property Level Flood Resilience Roundtable will demonstrate how collaboration between the private, public and charitable sectors is helping to positively shift the UK’s response to flooding while helping to transform the UK Flood industry.

The event

On Wednesday 26 April, join Business in the Community, the BRE and guest VIP speakers from the community, business and Government, to explore BRE’s Resilient House – a new demonstration project on the world renowned BRE Innovation Park. This exemplar project shows the key role that resilience measures installed in homes can play in preventing and alleviating the devastating effects of flooding on householders and businesses.

Adler & Allan, member of BERG, will be on hand to demonstrate a range of practical and innovative design, material and technology features – important in transforming how Britain prepares for future flooding.

The BRE project has been funded by the BRE Trust under its resilience research programme and by partners AXA Insurance, British Damage Management Association, Cunningham Lindsey, Defra, Kingspan, Natural Cement Distribution and Property Care Association.

Building on the BRE’s Resilient House, Business in the Community will announce a new collaboration called The Flood Resilient Demonstration Project where a number of properties within Carlisle will have flood resilience measures installed as an exemplar demonstration.
