Our constantly changing environment is presenting challenges to how we live. Flooding is happening more regularly and with more intensity, often with little warning. Aquobex is focused on how we should plan for and manage these devastating events.  

Aquobex protects some of the biggest organisations in the world against flood risk. Leading the industry with expert research, specialist consultancy and proven products, we deliver flood resilience strategies that work in harmony with the environment and technologies that suit the human aspects.

With an impressive track record of protecting people, homes and assets, knowledge underpins everything we do. Any business, infrastructure, home or community nationally or internationally can benefit from our services.

Innovation We create and develop sustainable strategies to reduce the impacts of flood risk on our ever-expanding cities, historic settlements and open areas. Our independent approach means using smart thinking to explore new ways to plan our cities; integrating appropriate design strategies at all scales. We protect people and properties through knowledge.

Smart Thinking Our priority is to work with nature, not against it. Thinking strategically, we monitor drought and flood cycles to see how they can be managed in city planning. We study catchment areas, beaver dams and the way trees work to develop technologies that make space for water and allow for natural floodplain management.

Partnering It’s important we grow our network with world-class businesses and products that maintain our values of shaping the future of flood protection and resilience. Our aim is to push the boundaries with forward-thinking and expertise from partners that enable our clients to be prepared for whatever tomorrow brings.

Research With our facility based at BRE, Watford, testing is at the forefront of our business. We examine how substrates react to water, pressure and temperature to form guidelines and improve building regulations for resilient materials. Setting the standard for the industry, we instigate projects such as the Aquobex Flood Resilient Property and are active participants in the UK’s Property Flood Resilience Action Plan.
