Property Level Protection Survey, County Durham
May 22, 2014

RAB Consultants has recently completed Property Level Protection (PLP) surveys at two private residential properties in County Durham to assess the options and work required to protect the building from flooding.

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