WELCOME LETTER ICE FLOODING 2016
30 JUNE LONDON

Dear colleague,

Im delighted to welcome you to ICE Flooding 2016 here at the VictoriaPark Plaza, London. Its great to see so many of you with us today.
In recent months, and even weeks, in the UK we have seen stark reminders of the damage that can be caused by extreme rainfall. Last winter large
parts of the country were inundated, and surface water flooding in our towns and cities has been a feature of a very wet start to summer. Its clearer
than ever that we cant continue to manage flooding using traditional models, yet there is no single solution to the challenge. We must continue to
develop our thinking around how to apply the right set of solutions in the right areas and build more resilience into our communities.
We as civil engineers, and those we work with, are uniquely placed to instigate change and meet the challenges we face ahead. ICE Flooding 2016
presents a timely opportunity for asset owners, the supply chain, policymakers and other flood risk management professionals to meet, discuss and
plan for the future. By reviewing the latest strategy, policy, best practice and technical innovations, together we can make progress towards
overcoming long term challenges and future proofing our infrastructure.
I look forward to hearing some stimulating presentations today from our top class speaker line up, which includes representatives of: The
Environment, Food and Rural Affairs Committee, the Environment Agency, the Centre for Ecology and Hydrology, the National Flood Forum, Welsh
Water, Transport for London, and many more. ICE was founded in 1818 as a forum for the open debate of civil engineering issues. Nearly two
hundred years on, the Institution is still committed to this process of knowledge transfer and seeks, through events like this, to provide an
environment for all those with a stake in future flood risk management to engage and influence that future.
Your feedback is crucial in shaping how we progress as an industry. Please share any comments, thoughts, ideas and opinions during the
conference with our staff. Alternatively you can email events@ice.org.uk.
Finally I would like to thank our platinum sponsors: XP Solutions and Hydro International, as well as all of todays speakers, our team event partners,

Floods
Protecting homes and businesses vulnerable to fluvial flooding from the devastation and financial loss it can cause is a high priority for
Government agencies, flood authorities and local communities in the UK.

High profile floods have made news headlines and raised fears of more frequent events as a result of climate change. 5.4 million properties
in England and Wales (1 in 6) are at risk of flooding. The average annual cost of damage from flooding in England and Wales is estimated
at more than 1.2 billion1.

Hydro Internationals Hydro-Brake Flood Alleviation flow controls are already delivering sustainable, low-maintenance, no-power solutions
that help provide over 200m worth of flood damage protection2 to more than 6,000 properties. They range from dispersed storage and
control schemes with pass forward flow rates of just a few litres per second to major dams controlling flows in excess of 10 m/s and holding
back millions of cu.m of flood water.

GLASS FLOOD WALLS

Our Glass Flood Walls provide the ultimate glass flood defence system,
capable of withstanding virtually any flood condition. These glass flood
walls can be used as a permanent first line of defence with minimal
visual intrusion and can be fitted to existing defences as well as new
construction.

Using a combination of high strength structural glass and stainless steel


frames which are designed to withstand the location-specific static and
impact loads, our glass flood barriers can be mounted on top of half-
height structural walls, or entirely freestanding and used as a pedestrian
barrier if required. The constant profile of the top beam gives good
sight lines, as opposed to the post and plank type glass barriers.

The result is a continuous barrier that is ideal as a flood defence where


permanent protection is advantageous and visual amenity is important.
No moving parts mean reduced maintenance requirements over other
barrier types and the protection is self-evident at all times.

Glass flood barriers can also future-proofed against rising flood levels
by a unique patented design that allows the flood protection height to
be raised at any later stage by simple addition of a demountable barrier
directly to the top of the glass system.

FLOOD BARRIERS

Our unique engineering knowledge and experience guarantee flood


protection solutions that are innovative, efficient and effective. We have
excellent working relationships with clients, consultants and architects,
gained by ensuring that the most appropriate and cost-effective flood
defence is designed.

Flood Control International offers a wide range of engineered flood


barriers to ensure that the optimal flood solution is provided.

Flood barrier designs vary from simple modular stop-log panels to


automatic barriers that operate only when required.

Demountable Flood Barriers - removable aluminium panels and steel


posts that can be supplied for virtually any configuration including
arcs, closed rectangles or circles and straight runs of any length.

Self-Closing Flood Barriers - designed to use the hydrostatic


pressure of the floodwater to raise the barrier automatically; ideal
for unmanned sites.

Flip-up Flood Barriers - automatic flood barriers that fully recess


into the ground to provide totally unrestricted access to pedestrian
and vehicle entrances with shallow construction depths.

Drop-Down Flood Barriers - located above the head of the opening,


these be activated at a moments notice or automatically using
sensors.

water and rail sectors, giving him a broad perspective on engineering issues. His present
role is with London Underground as the Head of Profession for Pumps and Drainage,
managing a team of engineers, principally providing design and assurance of civil
engineering works.
Over the last two and a half years, Anthony has been responsible for the London
Underground Comprehensive Review of Flood Risk; a project to provide a quantified
understanding of safety and business related flood risk exposure to all of its critical
vulnerable assets. The delivery of this project relied on a systematic data-driven approach,
involving the acquisition, cleansing, manipulation and intersection of large amounts of
internal and externally sourced geospatial and hydraulic modelling data to understand
hazard magnitude. This was followed by quantified risk assessment examining and
modelling the frequencies and consequences associated with each event to allow
computation of monetised risk values.

The project has allowed London Underground to develop a work bank of future site-specific
investigations where cost benefit ratios are likely to be high and capable of yielding
maximum value for money for the Business and the most cost-effective delivery of safety risk
reductions for tube users.
