Property Flood Resilience (PFR) Training

Delta Membrane Systems Limited have been at the forefront of Flood Resilience within the built environment having participated in the BRE Flood Resilience Home and the Cumbria Flood Resilience Show Case.

Delta’s PFR Training Course covers the use of products used historically in structural waterproofing to protect structures from water ingress and adapting the same to work in property flood resilience.

On this intensive 1 Day course, you’ll explore British Standard BS 85500:2015, design concepts, project planning, how flood water enters a property, flood water avoidance, flood water mitigation, flood water exclusion and flood water entry, site preparation along with installation and application of products.

This training course is ideal for both surveyors and contractors who want to strengthen their understanding of the processes involved in property flood resilience and the delivery of these within the built environment.

Participants should have a basic knowledge of waterproofing terminology along with familiarisation of installation tools and techniques.

Delta has a fully functional and state-of-the-art experimental learning area which enables delegates direct practice of specific tools and techniques that are commonly used by Delta’s instructors and Technical Team in property flood resilience.
