Catastrophic Event Response

When natural disasters or other catastrophes hit, prompt handling of claims and quick and accurate assessments from experts can enable owners and insurers to not only recover but to rebuild and strengthen themselves for the years to come.

Envista's dedicated experts and engineers have worked on thousands of catastrophe (CAT) losses over the last 15 years. Our experts are trained to respond quickly to disasters and follow proper protocol to ensure safety and efficiency when handling these complex claims.

Global Disaster Response Team

Whether you require a structural engineer to evaluate damage to buildings or a mechanical or electrical engineer to evaluate damage to equipment or electrical systems, our global team of experts can assist you with:

  • Identifying the cause and origin of structural and system failure, as well as corresponding fires or explosions
  • Determining the extent of damage, costing, repair/replacement valuation options
  • Analyzing the space for mould or contaminants
  • Evaluating the implications of new codes for reconstruction
  • Providing large or mega loss evaluations for energy, construction, infrastructure, data centres, heavy industry, and more

As consultants specialised in responding to disaster incidents, Envista will work with you on:

  • Loss mitigation. We will ensure that the extent of damage to plant, property, and equipment is stabilised and protected from unnecessary and avoidable deterioration.
  • Mitigating business interruption losses. We are often able to aid insurers, loss adjusters, and/or property owners in provisioning for temporary repairs or identifying alternative sources of services that help maintain business operations.
