Understanding the risks and types of flooding your property may be exposed to will help your home to be resilient with floods in Brisbane.

Though unable to eliminate the flood risks properties may face, we are able to put in place planning and flood mitigation measures to protect homes from floods.

  • Setting floor levels in buildings
  • Building houses in flood-prone areas higher (than standard buildings)
  • Building houses with more resilient materials
