John O’Gara, Specification Manager
John O’Gara joined Marshalls CPM over 12 years ago as a Territory Manager. His remit was to promote and manage below ground concrete drainage products and water management systems, before progressing to precast concrete walling solutions including Redi-Rock™ modular retaining walling.
Today, John is the Company’s Specification Manager for the North and Scotland and is a strong advocate of using Redi-Rock™ as a reliable and effective flood protection measure. John has been instrumental in the development of the Redi-Rock™ concrete flood block solution and has been involved in projects of all sizes, from the protection of a private individual’s back garden to large coastal installations, engaging with consulting engineers, local authorities, government agencies and the general public.
Flood protection that’s not a blot on the landscape
In response to increasingly devastating flood events, the Marshalls CPM team have re-engineered their Redi-Rock™ modular walling system to create a flood protection system that’s not only structurally robust, but also looks great too. This presentation will explain what you need to consider when designing and constructing a flood protection system, and also demonstrate how well designed defenses can complement their surroundings.
