Within the context of urban flood risk management, this chapter focuses on the vulnerability assessment and improvement of flood performance of buildings, in particular those that perform essential functions-designated as critical buildings. Three methods are presented as part of a framework for the assessment of building flood vulnerability and resilience. The first method (the "Quick Scan") is a "first pass", simple method to identify the assets most at risk of flood damage and easiest to tackle, leading to cost-effective interventions. The second method provides the necessary information and tools for selection and evaluation of flood resilient options for critical buildings while the third method (the Individual Building flood damage Tool, or IBT) allows detailed estimation of the extent of damage.
