Description

With many new homes still required in order to meet the growing demand for housing in the UK, space is a key consideration. This webinar will provide an understanding of where flood resilience fits in with legislation practices and how this may change in the coming years. It will look at where flood resilience fits within building regulations and therefore what is compulsory with regards to flood resilience, as well as have a look at some of the voluntary standards, guidance and certifications that allow buildings to demonstrate a further commitment to these issues.
