Fire & Flood Restoration Technical Support

As a qualified BDMA Technician since 2007 and directly involved in Project Managing the restoration and reinstatement of 30 residential properties and 4 commercial properties during 2005 after the floods hit Carlisle and other parts of Cumbria, my services have been in demand across a spectrum of major and complex loss insurance disasters, and in particular fire loss to provide technical support, health, safety and environmental management advice and also the Principal Designer’s role under CDM 2015.

Flood, fire, impact, subsidence, explosion and storm damage all have their own unique characteristics dependant on the type of property and activity taking place in those properties.  Flooding may present the risk of hydrostatic pressure on structures and cause sink holes; while fire damage can cause structural instability, as subsidence, impact and explosions can.

I have been involved in scores of complex and major loss projects over the past decade across a range of property and industry types listed below.

  • Heritage buildings 
  • Health care premises
  • Factories
  • Engineering facilities
  • Chemical plants
  • Manufacturing businesses
  • Universities and schools
  • Multi-story residential premises
  • Food production facilities
  • New and period residential properties

The BDMA Technician examination included sections on health and safety, insurance, damage limitation, cleaning, decontamination, drying, odour control, moisture measuring, microbiology, psychrometry and technical units on building components and fabric etc. The damage management industry presents particular challenges and dynamic situations that require an all-round experienced appraisal, which is exactly what we do for our clients, offering them options and practical solutions to complex problems.
