Elgin flooded in 1998, 2000, 2002. Diageo’s regional office is located in the centre of Elgin and has been affected by a number of these floods resulting in extensive damage. It was decided to protect the main building using a demountable system which would be easily deployed. After researching various alternatives, Floodguards were selected as it is a system that has been widely used across the whole of Elgin, and members of Diageo staff were familiar with its straightforward operational requirement.
