DAMAGE CLAIM INVESTIGATIONS
Activities like blasting, vibratory rollers, pile driving and seismic exploration create vibration and air overpressure that can cause damage to nearby homes and structures. IGS experts have the experience to review the damage and render an opinion on whether alleged damages were related to the operation.
IGS consultants interview the complainant, conduct an inspection of the property and photo-document the alleged damage. If available, any pre- or post-condition surveys will be reviewed. Vibration and air overpressure readings will be analyzed against damage criteria regulations and project specifications.
All compiled information will be catalogued in a final report to determine the intensity of the vibrations, probable effect on the structure and the validity of the claim.
