In our second episode, Raphinder Jhinger, Solicitor at BLM is joined by Mike Beber, Major Loss Surveyor at QuestGates to discuss the impact on repairs.

Raphinder and Mike consider the main issues in relation to repairing modular buildings following a fire, including:

  • Repairing service runs and cabling through modules.
  • The need to repair areas undamaged by the fire.
  • Difficulty in finding replacement parts.
