Flood: are you prepared?
Roy and Graham will look at the ways in which the round table is looking to make resilience a staple consideration for building owners and occupiers. They will cover overcoming the challenges of creating an efficient emergency response, setting technical standards, pooling data to gather the evidence base, assisting properties outside Flood Re and the ways in which building an effective communication strategy can cost effectively reduce the flood risk to businesses.
