When a flood hits homes and commercial properties, it is not only the buildings that are affected, but mostly the people, families and businesses that use those buildings to live, play and work.
The recently published report The property flood resilience action plan, commissioned by DEFRA, addresses the importance of the uptake of resilience measures for properties at high flood risk.
In this webinar the leader of the independent review that originated the report and BRE’s CEO Dr Peter Bonfield OBE speaks about the practical outcomes of the report, and how these outcomes are going to affect the construction industry in years to come.
