Between 2016/17, 184,000 homes were built in England. During this time, hundreds of homes and buildings across Britain were severely damaged, following extreme weather conditions including heatwaves, flash floods and sub-zero temperatures. According to conservation charity, WWF, the impact of such conditions is estimated to have cost the British economy tens of billions of pounds; this could increase even more by 2050, particularly if buildings continue to be constructed on flood plains.

Historically, fixing structural issues for any building was considered both challenging and costly, however, for large commercial buildings including warehouses, factories, business complexes and retail parks, discovering structural issues can be even more disruptive. Due to the sheer size of these industrial buildings and the affect structural issues can have on a business residing in the property, it’s vital facility managers, insurance professionals and property owners understand the advanced solutions available.

Ground engineering expert Mainmark is urging owners to check the structure of their buildings for signs of subsidence following the recent weather conditions, and recommending they research the advanced solutions now available for structural remediation work.

Chris Charman, former loss adjuster and insurance expert at global ground engineering specialist Mainmark, discusses how new technology is providing a solution for challenging property subsidence issues. Mainmark is lead sponsor of the CILA Subsidence Special Interest Group.

Increased support for buildings that require non-invasive ground improvements.
