How they can help you

Groundsure delivers the most up-to-date environmental data through partnerships with leading data, mapping and technology providers, as well as expert insight and opinion through IEMA-qualified environmental consultants.

Their products incorporate extensive geospatial datasets using a range of algorithms and expert interpretation, addressing headline property risks and providing clear answers with a high degree of certainty and assurance.

As well as essential geospatial information in an easy-to-use format, the reports are enhanced by data including historical land uses; landfill and waste sites; permits, licenses and other regulator records of potentially contaminative activity; geology; hydrogeology; hydrology; flooding; natural environmental hazards and areas of environmental sensitivity; all collected and curated from national, regional and local data providers.

They have also incorporated forward predictive climate modelling through their ClimateIndex analysis module to support client advice on climate risks that could affect the property or asset.

They also provide analysis and guidance on key transition risks including energy performance, flood resilience and improvement measures. These help homebuyers and businesses understand how investment in improving energy efficiency and flood prevention could improve asset values and support confident insurance and lending decisions.
