Flood assessments

A1 Services enhances flood estimates

Nearmap imagery is helping complete flood inspections and deliver estimates faster.

“The information we’re giving to the government and the resident is as accurate as it can be.”

James McInerneyDisaster Estimating Manager, A1 Services
Consulting to the building, insurance, and disaster sectors, A1 Services provides residential property and infrastructure inspections, assessments, and reports to support communities impacted by natural disasters. A1 Services leverages Nearmap content to help provide faster, more accurate disaster assessments.

The Challenge at a Glance

Effectively managing flood assessments

In the aftermath of severe weather events, A1 Services activates its team of engineers, hygienists, and electricians to undertake property assessments – inspecting, estimating, and reporting on flood damage impact. The team needs to access accurate, measurable data as quickly as possible to provide assessments and estimates that enable quicker response and recovery actions.

The Solution at a Glance

Up-to-date data for accurate proposals

Using Nearmap aerial imagery, A1 Services can measure and record details to create more accurate proposals, making calculations based on the building footprint and other verifiable property details. Viewing imagery of properties pre- and post-flood helps the team assess the extent of loss. With the accuracy and the frequency of capture, with Nearmap imagery A1 assessors can provide a clearer outline of quantities and materials needed for replacement and repair.

Business Impact

Fast assessments for rebuild and repairs

The ability to provide more accurate estimates of replacement building materials – such as external cladding, wall plaster, vinyl flooring, and other components – helps A1 Services provide insurers and government authorities with higher-accuracy reports of damage impact, along with anticipated replacement and rebuild costs. Remote inspections enable more properties to be assessed. This allows for supplies to be ordered sooner, helping expedite the claims process to facilitate, rebuild, and repair.
