Individual Property Protection

JBA Consulting has an established track record in undertaking property-level flood protection surveys. Communities value our independence, while suppliers have praised the high quality of our surveys.

We place a great deal of emphasis on how such assesments are carried out. Engaging with residents who have suffered the stress of repeated flooding requires sensitivity and understanding and this is where we begin the process. Property protection surveys are not just a simple survey commission. They require a mix of skills and resources, all of which JBA Consulting can provide. These include:

  • Highly experienced flood risk assessment engineers able to provide a comprehensive understanding of flood risk from all sources
  • Knowledge and practical experience of the range of flood protection products and solutions available
  • Completely independent of any product manufacturer ensuring impartial recommendations are made for the most appropriate solutions on every survey
  • Experienced land and building surveyors to undertake accurate topographic and threshold levelling surveys

We undertake an initial flood risk assessment and survey of individual properties, involving discussions with the owners.  This is followed up with a topographic and property threshold levelling survey.  This is carried out either by our own qualified surveyors or by sub-contractors.  In either case, detailed and accurate surveys are assured that provide clear and concise information for the product manufacturers specification and installation. 

Our reports propose a range of flood protection options to help mitigate flood risk, providing cost estimates and setting out the advantages and disadvantages of each option.  These are summarised giving regard to health and safety, ease of operation, storage, speed of deployment, surety of operation, standard of protection, maintenance requirements and cost.
