Services for
Insurance Companies

In the complex landscape of construction and development, insurance companies are tasked with the critical role of managing risk and ensuring the integrity of projects they insure. Partnering with a firm that offers a full suite of geotechnical engineering, construction special inspections, and construction materials testing services equips insurers with the detailed technical data and assessments necessary to make informed decisions. 

Geotechnical Engineering

We provide insurance companies with the assurance that the geological aspects of their insured projects are thoroughly evaluated and any risks are meticulously assessed.

  • Risk Assessment and Mitigation Planning: Identifying geotechnical risks that could affect insurance liabilities, offering strategies to mitigate them before they materialize.
  • Subsurface Exploration: Detailed analysis of the earth materials to assess the conditions that might affect the stability and safety of the insured structures.
  • Slope Stability Analysis: Evaluating potential landslides or ground subsidence that could impact insured assets, using state-of-the-art technology and methodologies.
  • Expert Testimony and Litigation Support: Our geotechnical experts stand ready to support legal teams with authoritative analysis and testimony on complex geotechnical matters.

Construction Special Inspections

Our IBC certified inspectors help insurance providers understand the level of adherence to building codes and standards, critical for assessing risk on insured construction projects.

  • Code Compliance Verification: Ensuring that all elements of construction comply with the International Building Code (IBC), which is vital for risk evaluation and policy development.
  • Structural Audits: Evaluating the structural integrity of critical building components can directly affect insurance assessments and underwriting.
  • Fireproofing and Safety Inspections: Verifying that passive fireproofing methods are properly installed and capable of withstanding the conditions they are designed to resist.
  • Documentation and Reporting: Providing comprehensive reports that document inspection findings, aiding in claim assessment and reserve setting.

Construction Materials Testing Laboratory

With our accredited testing facilities, we deliver definitive data on the quality and compliance of construction materials, crucial for insurance companies in claim validation and risk management.

  • Material Quality and Compliance Testing: Using ASTM and AASHTO standards to test for quality, strength, and durability of construction materials.
  • Forensic Analysis: When failures occur, we conduct thorough investigations to determine the root causes, informing claim investigations and disputes.
  • Environmental Contamination Testing: Assessing the presence of hazardous materials, providing data that impacts property insurance aspects like coverage scope and exclusivity clauses.
  • Periodic Monitoring and Testing: Continuous oversight of materials’ performance throughout the construction lifecycle, crucial for dynamic adjustment of coverage policies.

Our blend of specialized services enables insurance companies to minimize risk, ensure compliance, and uphold their fiduciary duty to policyholders. With our rigorous approach and comprehensive reporting, we position insurers at the forefront of risk management, providing them with a foundation of solid data and expert evaluations.
