Property Level Flood Protection Survey, Whitley Bay
Jun 21, 2013

Level RAB Consultants has recently completed a Property Level Flood Protection (PLFP) survey at a property in Whitley Bay, to assess the options and work required to protect the building from flood depths experienced during the 28th June 2012 flooding event.

We identified routes of water ingress at the property in line with the Environment Agency’s Flood Risk Report template which included:

* Householder observations;

* External features;

* Internal features;

* Non-structural issues.

We produced a PLFP report which detailed the homeowners report on flood depths, flow routes and mechanisms. We included a schematic indicating the identified routes of ingress and recommended appropriate flood resistance measures based on both the physical characteristics of the property and the capability of the householder. We also obtained quotations for the supply and installation of appropriate flood resistance products.
