The Ins and Outs of Subsidence Claims
Forensic Engineering Track
Subsidence—either the sudden or gradual displacement of the earth beneath a building—is a costly disaster that is very expensive to insure, and very expensive to clean up after following damage. Following the extreme and irregular heat waves, and as global climate change continues accelerating, an increase in subsidence claims will be a problem faced globally within a few years—as has already begun to happen.
Using case studies in addition to research, this webinar will look at the causes of subsidence claims and how to investigate them when they might—or do—occur.
