As part of the second phase of the Exeter Flood Protection works BAM Nuttall installed a new flood compensation area. The original design was modified, reducing the quantity of block stone along the waterline by installing Salix's 250mm deep Ready-filled Rock Mattress.
BAM Nuttall found that the installation of the Ready-filled Rock Mattress revetment was a value engineering solution due to the speed of installation and lower cost, replacing the initial blockstone design.
Two-thirds of cities experiencing relative economic decline face above average flood disadvantage according to new research by Sayers and Partners for the Joseph Rowntree Foundation. The report, Present and Future Flood Vulnerability, Risk and Disadvantage: A UK Assessment highlight how flood risks interact with social vulnerability across the UK to create flood disadvantage, an issue which will be exacerbated by climate change.
This guidance provides helpful information on flood damage, how to plan for a flood, and lots of other useful tips to keep safe and minimise the effects of flood damage to your home.

A shocking 90% of the country's floodplains are not fit for purpose, according to a new study.
An in-depth scientific study by Co-op Insurance has found nine tenths of England’s floodplains, which store the water from over-flown rivers, have changed to such a degree that they ‘no longer work properly.’
A new modelling study, commissioned by The Rivers Trust, shows that extensive and appropriately located Natural Flood Management (NFM) could make a significant difference to flood flows which would compliment traditional engineering measures.
The Rivers Trust has been working with JBA Consulting, Lancaster University and United Utilities to investigate how extensive NFM in large recently flooded catchments could have reduced flood flows in extreme storms, such as Storm Desmond in December 2015, which caused an estimated £500million of damage.
