PROPERTY LEVEL FLOOD RESILIENCE
Whitehouse were awarded this contract to supply and install Flood Mitigation products to twenty three properties in Dover, following the successful application of funding to DEFRA from Dover District Council.
A wide range of Property Level Flood Resilience solutions were provided on a bespoke basis to meet the needs of each individual property. This included the fitting of Whitehouse Flood Doors, automatic airbricks, NRV’s, and flood boards.
A number of properties were below road level, therefore extensive ground reprofiling was undertaken around these properties to divert the path of surface water away from all apertures.
Pre-start Flood Fairs were held for all homeowners, enabling them to meet our highly skilled, trained and experienced Flood Mitigation teams.
This interaction also enabled homeowners to browse products that would be installed in their homes, to suit both aesthetically, and practically, their individual needs.
All products installed are Kitemarked, with our Flood Doors Kitemarked to the NEW PAS 1188:2014, ensuring the quality, reliability and effectiveness of our products in the event of a flood.
After installation, our teams ensure homeowners are satisfied with the measures installed, are trained effectively on how to deploy them, and understand the maintenance each measure requires.
Should assistance be required, emergency contact details in Post- Installation packs are provided to each homeowner, also detailing long –term maintenance and deployment instructions.
