Ian Gibbs – BDMA Conference Speaker Profile

Name: Ian Gibbs

Company: Sedgwick

Job title: National Technical Manager

Brief synopsis of your talk: This session will explain the challenges of helping policyholders to return home as quickly as possible after a flood, whilst taking the opportunity of making the buildings more resilient to future floods.  This includes taking a fresh look at the resilience of materials and our approach to restoration.  The future approach we must take as an industry will be to follow the CIRIA Resilience Code of Practice (which is soon to be published).  I will outline the headlines from the Code and consider how we embed this in our approach to restoration and repair.

What are you most looking forward to about the BDMA conference? The opportunity to meet colleagues from different parts of the restoration and insurance industry and better understand the challenges they face and solutions they are designing to overcome these challenges.
