Climate change is causing sea levels to rise and weather patterns to change, including more frequent storm events. The Humber is the UK’s most flood-prone region after London, and we have been hit by several major flooding incidents in recent years. Flood Risk Management and the need to establish a new way of ‘Living with Water’ have been become hot topics for society and have opened up new opportunities for SMEs in our region and beyond.
Hear from Hiatt Jackson of the University of Hull’s Flood Innovation Centre, as she reveals why property flood resilience is an important part of the response to flood risk and how it is becoming a growing market for SMEs. Find out about the opportunities and challenges of this rapidly expanding sector, connecting you with more customers, enhancing your supply chains and helping you make a real difference in the fight against rising flood risk. Hiatt will be joined by Daniel Roche of M.B.Roche & Sons Ltd, Civil Engineering, who are currently working with the Flood Innovation Centre to expand their current portfolio of construction industry services with a new flood risk management offering.
