Retrofitting Resilience

University of Cambridge

October 2013 – October 2017

Property-level adaptation: With an increasing number of properties at risk of flooding, we urgently need to assess the resilience of buildings and consider the consequences and benefits of adaptation. The research aims to: develop new tools and techniques for the assessment, data gathering, communication and visualisation of flood risk; more rigorously understand the consequences of flood events; consider the temporal aspects of resilience; and explore the value of using scenario testing within a mixed-method research framework.
