Team Van Oord at Flood & Coast

Team Van Oord will be represented by two speakers at an important industry event that will advance the debate about flood and coastal erosion risk, resilience and response.

Convened by the Environment Agency, Flood & Coast 2016 will tackle the big questions and challenges in flood and coastal risk management (FCRM) delivery.

Team Van Oord will be represented on the program by Jacqui Bandy and Tom Green.

Jacqui Bandy will deliver a presentation on the multi-award winning Medmerry Managed Realignment Scheme in West Sussex, which includes the largest realignment of open coast in the UK.

The scheme, carried out on behalf of the Environment Agency, is a key element in a 15-year project to provide 7km of new sea defenses to protect local communities in West Sussex, while at the same time creating a large nature reserve.

As well as covering the scheme itself, Jacqui’s presentation will explain how the project team engaged with, and eventually won over, the local community during the course of the project, which was completed in November 2013.

Tom Green will present the Environment Agency’s South East Asset Recovery Program and discuss lessons learnt from the 2013/14 winter floods.

Flood & Coast 2016 will be held at the Telford International Centre, 23-25 February 2016.
