How we created the first fully flood adaptive holiday lodges in the UK

During the early part of 2024, we worked with Avon Estates in Warwickshire to create the  first fully flood adaptive holiday lodges in the UK.

We did this by retrofitting our ground-breaking Flood Adaptive Platform to two existing luxury holiday lodges on Avon Estates’ site at Stratford-upon-Avon, which overlooks the River Avon and has previously been affected by flooding. Twelve years in the making, the Flood Adaptive Platform is a multi-purpose mechanical jack system that’s designed to detect and react to flood conditions by automatically elevating above the rising water.  

Thanks to the Flood Adaptive Platform on which they sit, when rising flood water is detected, these two lodges will now automatically lift above the water level, to a maximum height of 2.1 metres above the ground, and remain there until it’s safe to return to ground level.

The Managing Director of Avon Estates, Nic Allen, said: “We’re really excited by the potential that the Flood Adaptive Platform offers, particularly for riverside holiday parks like ours, where the close proximity to the water is a major draw for people.

“The fact that the technology could be retrofitted to an existing lodge with minimum disruption was a huge plus for us and we’re proud to be working in partnership with the Flood Technology Group to showcase the UK’s first flood adaptive holiday lodges. This type of technology really is a game-changer for the mobile home and holiday lodge sector.”

Simon Gilliland of the Flood Technology Group said: “With climate change increasing the frequency and scale of flood events, we believe that property flood resilience measures must also continue to evolve if we’re to keep our homes, businesses and infrastructure safe. This is particularly important in flood-prone and coastal areas, where the impact on tourism hits business owners hard.”
