Flood Prevention

Company Reaches Out to Architects With New Services to Advance the Industry

Integrated Project Delivery is an important trend in the AEC industry. Flood Risk America introduced their pre-construction consulting services to the architectural industry to help their IPD systems change in a unique and positive way that may influence a revolution in team collaboration.

For years, there has been a disconnect between FEMA and NFIP regulations. This division has impacted the insurability once construction has been completed. Flood Risk America has found a solution to identify problems and procure solutions to this matter, as well as educating their clients on how to understand FEMA compliant standards and available grant money for flood mitigation services.

Flood Risk America is using their expertise in guiding architects on understanding flood maps and challenging inaccurate flood zone delineations from FEMA for potential qualifications for LOMA and LOMR submissions. They have patented products that are FEMA compliant and certified for flood insurance credits, helping architects to mitigate problems and build in compliance with NFIP regulations. Flood Risk America is revolutionizing architectural design for flood mitigation and integrating project delivery for the AEC Industry.

Avoid Flood Exposure to Your Elevators and Essential Equipment

Consequences of flooding on elevators and valuable assets can devastate a facility’s ability to function and can also cause loss of business and interruption to both the clients and owners. In various instances, many facilities could not function for long durations because essential equipment was placed in basements, sub-basements, or ground floor levels that flooded. In some cases, components of vital systems were elevated well above the floodwaters, while other elements such as transformers, transfer switches, fuel tanks, pumps, etc., were placed at lower levels, leaving them susceptible to flooding and the elevators and essential equipment in the control rooms and other places were then rendered inoperative.

Our vulnerability assessments provide information and recommendations to improve the functionality of critical facilities by preventing flood exposure to elevators and valuable assets. These assessments describe how essential equipment must be protected from flooding to allow a critical facility to perform its primary function during and after a flood event. Flood Risk America and Flood Risk Canada will help you identify vulnerabilities in essential facility systems and equipment using our comprehensive flood mitigation approach.

      flood events

·     Customized mitigation plan for protection of essential systems and equipment

Why Golf Course Owners are Extremely Happy

Golf is a prestigious sport loved by many people across the world. With the contributing factors of its relaxing atmosphere, beautiful courses, perfectly set grass, and small bodies of water, golf is a sport that can heavily rely on the consequences of Mother Nature. If a golf course floods, golfers have to choose another course to play and in return, golf course owners lose money and potential clients.

“Golf course owners contacted us regarding the inability to obtain flood insurance on their greens and bunkers. They explained the cost of damages they were facing regarding flooding damages, and what could be done to prevent them, so we came up with a solution,” said Stephen Gill, CEO of Flood Risk America & Flood Risk Canada. 

Flood Risk America and Flood Risk Canada are sister companies that specialize in flood assessment and mitigation techniques. Stephen Gill, along with his business partner, Tiffany Largey were determined to find a solution to keep golf courses from flooding, golf course owners happy, and golfers still playing their beloved sport. 

  • They created a detailed assessment of every green and bunker, including the clubhouse and any other structure lying within the perimeters of each course. From this flood risk assessment, they found which areas would have the potential risk of flooding and then devised an individualized flood plan for each golf course.

“We share the same type of excitement people acquire when they play golf and feel that we have hit our hole-in-one with this concept. We are truly excited to help many golf course owners maintain their business and golfers to continue improving their game,” Tiffany Largey, Partner and COO. 

We have hit our ‘hole- in- one’ with this concept.

Railroad Safety

The Federal Railroad Administration highlights the importance of safety within the railroad industry. Their mission focuses on efficiency, reliability, and protection of passengers, cargo, and railways.

Flood Risk America & Flood Risk Canada is proposing a solution to all Railroad companies to decrease the amount of derailments, potential losses, and injury. What if we were to tell you that we could not only help you maintain a safe and efficient transportation system, but we could potentially save you millions of dollars? With our extensive flood prevention and mitigation products, new services, and detailed flood risk assessments, we can positively change the preventable fatalities, derailments, and outward cost of the rail industry.

To prove our theories related to cost analysis, we asked a credible source within the United States insurance industry to give us an estimate on how much Flood insurance can potentially cost. The answer we received was appalling. When a track is within a flood zone, the deductible can be up to $5,000,000 and the sublimit is lower. When the track is outside of a flood zone, the deductible is $250,000 and your sublimit is much higher. After hearing this information, my partner and I came together and made it our utmost goal to do whatever it takes to not only help our clients achieve their highest amount of safety, but to also save them money in the process.

At Flood Risk America and Flood Risk Canada we are proud to say that we honor both our clients and their investments. We work diligently to protect and prevent losses, while creating a trustworthy and sustainable relationship. We look forward to becoming your solution.
