Case Studies

Flood resistance measures and flood resilience measures can significantly reduce the levels of damage in a property. More information on the types of flood protection, is available by clicking here. This page discusses several case studies of properties that have now integrated protection measures on them, and what this has meant for the occupants.

These case studies illustrate how properties that have been flooded in the past can be adapted to incorporate flood defences to help minimise the impact of future floods.
