Blue Heart's Lego House

Supporting FCRIP Colleagues: LEGO Flood House

In support of our FCRIP colleagues, we would like to share details of a fantastic initiative that has been created by our friends at Blue Heart: Introducing the LEGO Flood House 🏠

This is live on the LEGO Ideas Platform and needs 10,000 votes for LEGO to consider bringing this kit to a shop near you.

The LEGO Flood House has been designed by the project team at Blue Heart, in collaboration with The Environmental Design Studio, to showcase the impacts of flooding on a home and the benefits of making a property more flood resilient.

A pair of terrace houses are shown in the set, one that is vulnerable and damaged by the flood water and the other that is flood resilient. The home that is resilient has a variety of elements that help make the house more flood resistant and recoverable.

These measures all help to reduce the impact of flooding and mean that the home can be reinstated with less time, expense and stress. Helping ensure families are able to bounce back, be better prepared and more resilient to flooding.

We think that the LEGO Flood House is a brilliant way to raise awareness of flooding, PFR & flood resilient gardens, amongst kids & adults alike, and we hope it receives many votes! (There’s even a Flood Mary character in the set, which is a lovely touch!)

The RAIN Project and Blue Heart are two projects that are funded by Defra as part of the £200 million Flood and Coastal Innovation Programmes, which is managed by the Environment Agency. The programmes will drive innovation in flood and coastal resilience and adaptation to a changing climate.
