SatSense can help identify potentially harmful movement of commercial and residential properties and their surroundings. These movements can result in subsidence or heave, which can lead to expensive insurance claims, property devaluation or damage. Buyers can be made aware of risks via environmental risk search reports containing our data.
Previously, subsidence risk was assessed using data about potential for ground movements. For example, if the local area has been subject to mining or other underground activities, this would create potential for subsidence. Typically, this kind of data covers much wider areas than the property footprint and does not measure actual subsidence.
SatSense offers the capability to measure actual subsidence at a property level. As a result, purchasers can be reassured or warned of the potential for ground movement and take appropriate action for further onsite investigations if there has been movement to cause concern.
