Simplexity now benefits from these key personnel with extensive experience in Surveying, Inspecting, Project Managing, and Auditing.



Why Use Simplexity?

To answer this, ask yourself the following questions;

  • Do I feel that the scope of works from EQC or my Insurer is correct? Are they in line with my individual policy or the EQC Act?
  • Do I feel that the suggested repair strategy from EQC or my Insurer is correct and in line with my individual policy or the EQC Act?
  • Do I feel that the costing or settlement offer from EQC or my Insurer is correct and in line with my individual policy or the EQC Act?
  • Do I feel that previous engineering reports provide recommendations that is in line with my individual policy or the EQC Act?
  • Are these aspects in line with with my individual policy of the EQC Act?

If you answered No to any of those questions then you likely require a preliminary inspection, and Simplexity can most likely assist you immediately.

You might ask, “Why do I need another inspection?” or, “Can I not just use an engineer?”.

Simplexity provides a comprehensive Building Report and Repair Strategy that is tailored to your individual policy wording.

Let’s explore how this works.



The Surveying Process

Simplexity book in a Preliminary Inspection of your property. (This can be arranged

immediately by filling out one of the booking forms supplied).

From this initial inspection the following will be ascertained:

  • The general extent of damage to the property and dwellings, zip level and wall verticality survey will be undertaken.
  • The likely direction of your claim based on your policy wording
  • An indication of any other professionals required to assist you with your claim

Simplexity will then provide a comprehensive Building Report and Repair Strategy based on the following:

  • Your individual Insurance policy or the EQC Act
  • The subsequent findings of other engaged professionals.
  • Full review of all supplied Insurance or EQC documents and reference made within the report.
  • Simplexity’s own onsite inspection and findings.

This BRRS would then be reviewed by an engineer to determine the structural implications of the damage and repair strategy suggested.
