Building Against Flooding 

With 70% of urban flooding can be attributed to surface water, not burst river banks or the sea, Floodex looks at the risk of flooding for new builds and what to do about property and land that has been, or could be affected by flooding.  

Anyone involved in building and development in both urban and rural areas, will need to consider potential flood prevention and damage in large parts of the UK.
