Boulder, in the State of Colorado is located at the base of the foothills of the Rocky Mountains at an elevation of 5,430 feet (1,655 m). Its close proximity to this mountain chain puts in range of flooding during the spring when the mountain snows begin to melt.

The restaurant KFC was making a major investment in a new flag ship store in the town and wished to incorporate a solution to the problem of flash flooding in at the design stage.

The Solution

The restaurant is situated on the corner of 15th Street and has two main customer entrances which were protected by two, 2m Self Closing Flood Barriers.
