Flood and Water Management – future challenges and business opportunities

9 March, 2016, 4:00 pm - 6:30 pm


The recent severe storms and floods that affected many parts of the UK demonstrated the increasing impacts of climate change on our local environment. This event considers how we will need to adapt our approach to building design while developing more effective water management solutions ranging from flood protection products and services through to rainwater harvesting systems.

This event features presentations from:-

Environment Agency – Paul Lockhart will give an overview of the changing nature of the threat, business continuity planning, and the benefits to business of building in flood resilience to business infrastructure. He will also discuss the potential economic opportunities arising from a more pro-active approach to flood risk management.
StormSaver – Michael and Lisa Farnsworth established Stormsaver in 2003 which has since created rainwater harvesting systems for more than 1500 commercial buildings and homes in the UK. The systems help the environment by recycling rainwater and reducing utility costs and are manufactured at Stormsavers’ new headquarter in Hockerton, Notts.
Flood Protection Solutions Ltd – Simon Crowther was inspired to start his own business when his family home flooded. Flood Protection Solutions, based in Colwick, are the distributors of Water-Gate barriers a unique portable, reusable barrier system which can be rolled out in minutes and uses the weight of the flood water to create a barrier. Simon has since sold thousands of metres of the product to clients across the UK including the Environment Agency and Emergency Services.

This event is free to attend includes refreshments a networking opportunity. The venue is served by a number of bus routes and has free on site car parking.
