The winter of 2013-14 has again emphasised the vulnerability of the built environment against storms and floods. It was the latest in a string of bad weather that has hit the UK in recent years and hints that what were once considered once-in-a-lifetime events, could now be regular occurrences. Extreme seasonal temperatures from harsher winters and drier summers, also pose serious risks to the health and wellbeing of building occupants.
This free-to-attend one day conference showcases the technologies and the solutions that can protect and mitigate against flooding, storms and extreme temperatures. Supported by seminars and interactive sessions, the aim is to provide visitors with an understanding of resilience in the context of insurance and risk, design and build, health and wellbeing and repair, rebuild and rehabilitation of the built environment.
