Project leadership

The project will inform decision making on the mitigation of community risk posed by Australian buildings in flood plain environments, either through poor planning, or placed there by design as part of planned developments. It complements parallel CRC projects for earthquake and severe wind.
Research team:
The June 2016 Launceston flood provides a significant opportunity to review the actual cost versus benefit from the significant mitigation works recently contracted to protect the city.

Cost-effective mitigation strategy development for flood prone buildings


The main objective of this research is to develop cost-effective strategies to mitigate damage to residential buildings from riverine floods. 

Cost-effective mitigation strategy development for flood prone buildings


The main objective of this research is to develop cost-effective strategies to mitigate damage to residential buildings from riverine floods. The research will provide evidence-based retrofit strategies for decisions concerning the buildings with the greatest vulnerability in Australian communities.
