Hodgson View: Property Flood protection Works – so why don’t we buy it?

Both our regular news readers & our PCA members know from the many blogs we’ve written on the subject, that flood resilience and resistance works. It gets people back in their homes faster and saves vast amounts of money and energy rich resources. Yet, it isn’t quite incentivising us enough as homeowners to spend money on a ‘what if’, as PCA’s CEO Steve Hodgson discusses in his latest ‘Hodgson View’.

Tips for Social Media

Love it or loathe it, social media is a part of working life and many of you will agree that it has fundamentally changed the world we live and operate in. But how do we get the best out of it? How do we know what to post, when’s best to post and on which channels?

PCA’s Technical Manager James Berry attended a social media masterclass recently and shares some valuable tips, which you can access via the button below…

‘Test Wall’ – Phase 1 underway…

PCA’s Technical team have recently built a ‘test wall‘ at the Practical Training Centre, with the idea of running a number of experiments using a number of moisture measuring tools, to  compare and contrast the readings, ease of use and accuracy etc… We will also consider the impact of different wall coverings.

We are pretty sure nothing like this has been carried out before and we look forward to sharing the journey with you. Videos will be shared over the coming weeks and months as we begin the experimentation phase….

 

Next LIVE webinar

**JUST 1 WEEK** until our next LIVE webinar! Following on from the recent update to BS 8102:2022, our next broadcast raises the question ‘Does this change our view of waterproofing?’

What exactly are the updates and what has changed? What impact will the updates and changes have on design choices and waterproofing strategies moving forward? Will this updated guidance change our view to waterproofing?

To find out the answers and to learn much more, join us and PCA Trainer Michael Earle, on Thursday 28th April 2022 from 9-10am.
