This guide is FREE to CIRIA members, sign in to download a copy
Property flood resilience (PFR) is an important part of the response to flood risk. PFR includes measures that reduce the risks to people and property enabling households and businesses to reduce flood damage, speed up recovery and reoccupation. PFR measures should reduce the amount of water entering buildings (known as resistance measures), or limit the damage caused if water does enter a building (known as recoverability measures).
Four key outputs have been developed for the project, these are:
CIRIA C790A Code of practice for property flood resilience. Edition 2.
This code of practice (CoP) is concerned with PFR measures that can be introduced to buildings at risk from flooding. It includes six standards that specify what should be achieved. These standards are supported by guidance documents explaining how the standards could be met and how the CoP can be used.
CIRIA C790B Guidance on the code of practice for property flood resilience.
This publication supports the CoP's six standards and provides a comprehensive guidance on how the standards should be met by following stages within a PFR delivery process.
