Context

Edenside Barn is a private dwelling on farmland close to the river Eden in Cumbria and a real-life demonstration property in the Cumbria Flood Resilient Showcase.

The idea behind the Flood Resilient Showcase Project was to adapt properties prone to flooding using products and materials that aim to reduce water ingress. The showcase highlights what can be done to manage the residual risk.

At the core of the Flood Resilient Showcase Project is the real-life demonstration of flood installation measures at three properties in Cumbria led by Mary Dhonau, Chief Executive of the Know Your Flood Risk Campaign.

Edenside Barn has periodically been flooded when the river Eden has bursts its banks and subsequently been uninhabitable.

Solution

Aquobex Flood Management Solutions were appointed as consultants on the flood resilient design and inclusion of products within their range.

Following successful collaboration with Mary Dhonau on flood resilience projects, Delta Membrane Systems worked with the Flood Resilient Showcase Project to provide a robust, resilient and recoverable solution for the property.

Delta’s design incorporated guidance given in BS 85500:2015 Flood Resilience in Buildings, which plans for both water exclusion and water entry. It sought to provide continuity of the internal system with the external flood barriers to create a water tight seal to the property.

Prior to application at Edenside Barn, Delta’s water-based Epoxy was tested at Aquobex’s testing facilities. Aquobex operates a premier test facility dedicated to PAS118 - 1 and FM2510 (testing of flood protection products). It is equipped to produce the necessary conditions for static water testing, current testing and with wave-makers suitable to deliver the JONSWAP wave formations specified in the standard. Aquobex’s testing facilities are utilised by BSI and the BRE for flood product testing.

The property structure itself consisted of solid stone walls and concrete floor slab with minimal risk of flood ingress.

The block walls and floor slab were tested for any potential leak paths. The interfaces between the wall and floor needed to offer a watertight seal to stop ingress between the slab and the wall.

Delta’s water-based Epoxy worked in conjunction with the polyeurea to provide both a barrier to water entry and a non absorbent finish. Koster Polysil TG 500 was applied throughout as a salt inhibitor and surface hardening treatment.

Delta Registered Installer’s Peter Cox Limited, volunteered their time to install Delta products on this project.

Outcome

Through joined up thinking and the use of combined systems this property can be insured and is now recoverable to both flood water exclusion and water entry.
