Various Humber Region locations
We’re excited to be bringing the Floodmobile on a tour of the Humber Region with dates in Hull, the East Riding and North East Lincolnshire. The tour culminates in a Flood Innovation Centre open day at our home-base at the Aura Innovation Centre, at Bridgehead nr Hessle.
The Floodmobile is an innovative mobile demonstration vehicle that has been designed to welcome the community inside to bring Property Flood Resilience to life. The ‘flood house on wheels’ is packed with around 50 different property flood resilience measures, to show households and businesses what property-level adaptations they can introduce to help reduce the impact of future flooding.
The Humber Region is one of the most flood-prone areas in the country, second only to London. The 2007 floods saw over 8,000 households flood in Hull alone.
Join us to explore the various measures on display, speak to experts from our friendly Flood Innovation Centre team as well as special guests, including Fola Ogunyoye of TJAY Consultancy Ltd and Mary Dhonau – known as ‘Flood Mary’ for her campaigning work on the subject of flood resilience.
FloodMobile Tour Locations
We’re partnering with the local authorities covering each of these venues to ensure that we open up the FloodMobile tour to as many residents as possible. Tuesday to Thursday are operating on a drop-in basis. The Flood Innovation Centre open day on Friday is a bookable event – scroll to the bottom of this page to book
We hope to see you soon so you can explore the various property flood resilience measures suitable for your business or community group property. We also hope to reschedule our Barton date for later in the year – this was scheduled for 19 Sept, which is the Queen’s funderal.
What can you expect to see inside the Floodmobile?
The Floodmobile showcases a wide range of flood protection and prevention measures, including valves, non-return vales, wall membrane systems with accompanying sump pumps, flooring, wall coverings, alternative skirting boards, self-closing air bricks, periscope covers, recoverable kitchens and flood barriers and doors – including those suitable for listed buildings. The Floodmobile also showcases various types of waterproof plaster and insulation.
Who created the Floodmobile?
The Ox-Cam PFR Pathfinder Project created the Floodmobile, which is one of three DEFRA property flood resilience ‘pathfinder’ projects across the country.
The aim of the Floodmobile is to help raise awareness in communities and businesses of flood risk and PFR measures, in order to increase uptake and improve resilience and recovery; and engage productively with the wider industry to facilitate the promotion and uptake of PFR measures.
