Complete flood protection for new build projects

Planning approved flood barrier solutions

Demand for new houses in the UK continues to rise, whilst at the same time, local authorities are increasing the burden on house builders to construct on historic flood plains, or land deemed to be flood risk.

Floodshield is the perfect partner to help you meet the flood protection requirements of your planning consent, whilst protecting the aspect of your development which is so important to selling plots.
