Major Loss Property Claims
80,000 sq.ft over three blocks/£1,185,000 contract sum
Substantial damage occurred following the Buncefield oil storage explosion. To reduce consequential damage, we arranged enabling contracts to secure the buildings and repair the roofs, whilst we led a multi-disciplinary inspection team to establish the extent of damage to visible and concealed elements. We agreed the remedial works package and liaised with the landlord, tenants and loss adjuster throughout the process.
We reinstated the tenant’s business trading nine months after the blast and minimised potential for “legacy blight” with a phased and proportional approach to the investigation and works. Our cohesive audit trail benefitted both the client and loss adjuster in settling the insured’s claim, and pursuing Buncefield’s insurers.
