About the Speakers

Flood Consult International has been setup to offer clients from commercial, industrial, insurance and utility sectors a better understanding of their flood risk and how to defend against it. The core staff at FCI have over 25 years’ experience of working in the flood defence industry during which time have offered consultancy and designed solutions for a variety of assets from a minor extension on a warehouse to a nuclear power station.

During their careers within the industry they worked predominantly in the utility sector protecting sites of Critical National Infrastructure (CNI). These include nuclear infrastructure, grid and primary electricity substations, clean and waste water treatment works, gas pressure reduction stations and telecommunication hub/exchange sites.

Outside of the utility sector they have aligned ourselves with numerous insurance companies reviewing flood exposure of their portfolio clients with a view to providing recommendations to increase the flood resilience/resistance of an asset. Portfolio clients include pub/restaurant chains, hotels and retail outlets.

During their extensive time within the flood defence industry, as well as the diversity of projects in which they have assisted, FCI has built up a substantial knowledge of competent flood defence products and companies. This enables them to confidently recommend products and companies who can undertake any flood resilience/resistance measures deemed necessary. They have also been involved in onsite testing of installed flood products as well as factory testing through FM Approvals and BSI.

Book early to ensure you do not miss this opportunity to engage with and put your questions directly to specialists in the flood risk area.
