Property Risk


Ground movement might already be impacting your property

With changing environmental conditions and large infrastructure projects, the impact of ground movement on property and infrastructures is being felt worldwide.

Investigate property damage

Go back in time by leveraging historical data to investigate specific events, establish credible timelines and assess liability for damages or loss of value

Predict future outcomes

Identify and quantify trends based on actual ground measurements updated multiple times a year.

Spatial intelligence down to property level

Need to assess the impact of ground movement on a specific property?

Our property reports provide a detailed look at surface displacement on and around any property to help assess liability and the potential impact on valuation.

  • Go back in time to establish when the property was first impacted
  • Identify the cause of surface movement
  • Establish a baseline of movement prior to construction projects
  • Identify trends to assess and predict future structural risk

Risk you can quantify

Introducing our Surface Movement Risk Index (SMRI)

Currently under development, our index will provide a structural vulnerability score for more than 7.2 million properties across Australia.

The index will make it easier than ever to understand and quantify how vulnerable a property is to potential structural damage, perform large scale analysis to assess the impact on property valuations over entire mortgage or investment portfolios and understand insurance risk.
