Join Robert Sparling and Ben Desclouds for an informative session on water losses and the investigation path for condo and office tower building system failures. Water releases in condos and office towers can result in significant amounts of damage. With new buildings getting taller every day, the potential for larger losses increases. Our presentation will follow the loss investigation paths for various types of water losses from the following systems:
• Plumbing systems (e.g. fridges, sinks, filters, washing machines)
• HVAC systems (e.g. chillers, fan coils, riser piping)
• Fire Sprinklers Systems (e.g. sprinkler heads, dry system piping)
For each of the above system components we will provide a background on the purpose of the components, a description of the common failure mechanisms, and case study examples. We will provide tips, tricks, and best practices that can be used in future water loss investigations. Gathering the proper information at the outset of a claim will help later in the claims process during the subrogation phase.
