Fire in a storage building


A large-scale fire broke out, destroying the integrity of the building. Right away, three GM Consultant loss adjusters specialising in investigating the causes of fires, in construction and in financial risks met to draw up an initial analysis and to steer the appraisal investigation.


The overall condition of the building made it impossible to determine the cause of the fire. In addition, despite their involvement and despite placing several elements under seal, the crime scene investigators with the French Gendarmerie were also unable to determine the cause.

A financial analysis was quickly carried out to assess the operational losses and to analyse and control the additional costs. Thanks to a prompt advance payment, used to replace inventory and to install tents and cabins for serving customers, there were no operational losses.

Finally, technical expertise for rebuilding the property was provided by our construction specialist.
