Combined experience in insurance, loss adjusting and surveying gives BCH a unique perspective into the valuation of buildings for insurance purposes.
What you can expect from us.
At BCH we are committed to focus on valuations for insurance. Reinstatement Cost Assessments for buildings are our core business. We will never be distracted by other work, because this is all we do.
Because we do nothing else we are specialists in preparing Reinstatement Cost Assessments. The directors have worked within the wider insurance industry, these include Loss adjusting, as a Lloyds broker and risk management within multi-national insurance companies – their surveying knowledge is applied within the broader insurance context. This broader approach is disseminated through constant coaching and regular training of all staff.
A respected business that you can trust
Martyn Barrett was the only chartered surveyor on the RICS working group panel for the 2011 Reinstatement cost assessments of building 2nd edition, guidance note, who also holds the ACII and FCILA qualifications.
BCH are consultants to BCIS, the RICS’ Building Cost Information Service, the leading provider of cost information to the construction industry and other interested parties.
Leading insurers turn to us to aid with training on underinsurance in buildings, especially in respect of listed and historic buildings, and also to provide data for in-house assessors to use.
Our service is recognised by most leading insurers and brokers and we are often asked to publicly speak and comment on the matter of buildings valuation and under insurance.
We value your custom
At BCH we are interested in our clients and the buildings we are valuing. That is why our Principal Surveyors and Directors are always available to answer questions and queries or just to chat something through.
We operate in a traditional manner but are supported by the latest technology to help us achieve the best possible results. We are 100% committed to our quality assurance process whereby every property that we value is audited by a Principal Surveyor and then, according to thresholds, is also audited by a Director before being presented to a client.
We are always aiming to provide excellent service to our customers with annual investment is made into continuing professional development of our team.
Every Customer is unique
Every building is valued by consideration of its elemental makeup and its specific location and site conditions. Therefore no 2 valuations leave our office with the same rate per metre. Every building is unique and every assessment is unique.
