Webinar: Flooding: Risk, Resilience and Recoveries

Wednesday, 06 December 2023
1:00 pm – 2:00 pm (UK time)
    • Richard Keightley, Principal Associate, Hawkins & Associates

This webinar uses case studies to discuss factors that affect flood risk to existing properties and new developments, how flood risk can be reduced using property flood resilience (‘PFR’) measures, and how a forensic hydrologist / expert witness can assist in subrogated recoveries involving flood damage.

Learning Objectives
At the end of this session delegates will be able to identify:

  • The different sources of flooding;
  • Factors that affect flood risk;
  • The different types of PFR, CIRIA’s Code of Practice for PFR and Flood Re’s “Build Back Better” scheme;
  • How the early involvement of a forensic hydrologist / expert witness can assist with subrogated recoveries involving flood damage.

Richard Keightley is a Principal Associate at Hawkins & Associates. He is a Chartered Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Water and Environmental Management, and specialises in the forensic investigation of flooding, drainage, water ingress and hydrological issues.

Much of his work involves acting as an expert witness in Civil Proceedings involving flood damage, instructed on behalf of both Claimants and Defendants.
