As the floods continue it’s time to learn.
A key strategy in high risk areas is to build resilient homes. Holland has decades of creating flood proof homes, let's learn from their success.
Our floating homes and sustainable pavilions use permeable surface infrastructures and do not require the hard surface tarmac and concrete of modern housing developments, which have proved to be a major cause of the Thames Valley floods.
The rain absorbing green roofs we use have also been shown by the Dutch to slow the amount of water reaching drainage systems and rivers.
