Meet AECOM at Flood & Coast 2016
16,000 homes were flooded in the recent storms across northern Britain alone, reminding us of the risks communities face, and the importance of effective water management and resilience measures.
Flood & Coast 2016 offers an opportunity to draw on the best learning from practitioners in flood and coastal risk management, including affected communities, across the UK and worldwide.
At Flood & Coast 2016 between 23 – 25 February 2016, come and meet AECOM at stand B22 in Hall 1 – Telford International Centre, or listen to our speakers. Contact us to schedule a meeting with the team or to find out more.
