Damage and Disasters

When a building suffers catastrophic damage due to accident or extreme circumstances, there is a need to get things back to normal as quickly and effectively as possible.  This is especially the case when peoples’ lives are turned upside down and livelihoods are threatened.  With our comprehensive knowledge of building construction and especially with older buildings we are well placed to give assistance and help to put things back to rights.  In these circumstances, we are often asked to advise and report on the cause and effects of damage created by untoward occurrences such as:

  • Fire
  • Subsidence and foundation/ground movement
  • Wind, storm and other weather related incidents
  • Collision and impact damage

We often work in conjunction with Loss Adjusters, insurance companies and other building professionals.  We will also design the repairs and remedial works and organize the reconstruction, if required.
