As we become more and more used to seeing flooding events every year, climate scientists are starting to talk about a ‘new normal’ of frequent floods.

In this month’s cover feature, we look at the challenges that growing flood risks pose to the surveying profession, how surveyors should assess flood risk and what advice they can offer homeowners and lenders.

Also in this edition

  • How do you handle a major archaeological find when you’re in the thick of a major building project? We look at best practice from across the world, including London’s massive Crossrail project.
  • We look at the problem of inconsistent cost measurement and reporting across the world, the possible role of International Construction Measurement Standards.
  • And, in our lead column, Stephen Hill MRICS, director of C20 Futureplanners, argues that ethical behavior on the part of surveyors is not only in the public interest, but is in fact fundamental to a healthy and productive economy.
