Protecting buildings from flood damage - IOER presents planning tool at Messe Dresden

Self-protection against floods is becoming increasingly important. This is particularly true for the protection of residential buildings. The new information tool FLOOD.Bi can be used to determine and minimise the risk of flood damage to buildings. The Leibniz Institute of Ecological Urban and Regional Development (IOER) developed the tool together with the Saxon State Office for the Environment, Agriculture and Geology (LfULG) in the EU project STRIMA II. On 11 and 12 September, a team from both institutions will present the new online tool at the "Bauen Kaufen Wohnen", a fair on construction and real estate in Dresden.

FLOOD.Bi helps to minimise the risk of flood damage to buildings through forward-looking planning and structural adjustments. The planning instrument is available free of charge at the internet. It is suitable for building owners as well as for professional planners and engineering offices.

At the "Bauen Kaufen Wohnen" fair, experts from the IOER and the LfULG will explain how FLOOD.Bi can be used for site-specific flood prevention on buildings.
