About Us

Established in 2011, we are a global leader in flood risk management

Known as The Flood People®, our flood maps, catastrophe models and analytics are used by some of the world’s largest insurers, reinsurers, financial institutions, property companies and governments. We’re experts in translating complex, scientific data into useful information, using sophisticated hydraulic approaches and models to provide cutting-edge flood risk intelligence.

As part of the JBA group, a specialist environment, engineering and risk consultancy business established over 20 years ago, we work closely with leading academic institutions in the field of flood risk. We also support our independent charity, JBA Trust, which enables research, education and training in the water environment sector.

Our commitment to continuous improvement and detailed research and development is what makes us the number one choice for many insurers, reinsurers, financial institutions and governments.

Flood is a complex hazard that requires sophisticated mapping, analytics and modelling to be fully understood. Failure to use detailed, up-to-date, high-quality information that considers all sources of flooding can lead to costly mistakes.
Simon Waller, Managing Director

We’ve recently moved into our brand-new head office in Skipton, on the edge of the beautiful Yorkshire Dales, alongside our colleagues from JBA Trust and JBA Consulting. With construction beginning in 2017 to create a building that combines innovation and environmental ethics, the result is a space that enables creative thinking and collaboration.
