It is vital to understand the level of flood risk on a commercial property or site as it not only affects the cost of buildings insurance, it also leads to extra costs, inconvenience and loss of business should the property be affected by flood. Sitecheck Flood assesses the potential flood risk to a commercial site and includes an independent professional opinion from a team of specialist consultants.
Recent extreme weather events have demonstrated that flooding isn’t just restricted to those properties that are close to a river or the sea. A flood report is essential before deciding to go-ahead with a commercial property or development site purchase. The Groundsure Floodview report contains high quality data on different types of flooding with a fully interpreted risk assessment and view on insurability. Flood risks are mapped on separate maps for clarity.
FloodSolutions Commercial is the most advanced commercial flood risk screening report. This is suitable for high value transactions, including redevelopment deals and heavy industrial sites. It details the overall risk of flooding with and without defences, and advises whether a full Flood Risk Assessment is required under the National Planning Policy Framework. An indication is also made as to whether flood risk in this instance means insurance will be harder to obtain or trigger higher premiums. Finally it provides flood protection and mitigation measures that could reduce the risk.
