Major flood events are becoming more frequent due to climate change. We can never eliminate the risk of flooding entirely, but it is possible to reduce the risk of water getting in to a home or business and reduce its impact if it does get in. The various measures that you can take to do this are called Property Flood Resilience.

Property Flood Resilience (PFR) presents a growth opportunity for all kinds of construction businesses. In the Humber Region alone, 32,500 businesses and 197,000 residential properties are at risk of flooding. Across the UK, Aviva estimates that 1 in 5 properties are at risk of flooding.

To help all kinds of construction businesses capitalise on opportunities in PFR, we’re offering fully-funded places on our lively, interactive workshop programme.
