Listed Building Flood Mitigation

Posted 15. 07. 2021

As part of the DEFRA funded flood resilience grant schemes, Flood Protection Solutions Ltd provided surveys and mitigation options to various properties around the U.K.

One of the projects involved a Grade 2 listed property, where the rear entrance sat much lower than the rest of the property. Whilst some migration did occur through the walls, the main entrance point was a set of French doors. The client’s conservation officer wanted the mitigation measures to be inobtrusive, and was happy to approve a flood barrier if the rails were powdercoated. This was implemented and demonstrates that flood barriers need not be an eyesore.

The property was also repointed in areas, and had not yet been repainted following this before the image was taken.
