This Good Building Guide outlines steps that can be taken to protect buildings or communities against flooding by means of flood resilience (FRe) technologies, that is, flood protection products which can provide resistance or resilience to flooding impacts. It covers two particular types of FRe technologies, aperture barriers (or property level protection) and perimeter barriers, and provides information on: - types of flooding- flood risk management strategies- flood survey - types of FRe technologies- design and testing standards- installation procedures- maintenance requirements.This practical guidance will help developers, planners, designers, construction managers and operatives to identify flood risk, plan for flood risk management, and correctly design, install and maintain FRe technologies.
