Probable Maximum Loss Services
Probable Maximum Loss (PML) investigation reports are becoming increasingly important to property owners, developers, lenders and insurance companies concerned about damages and losses stemming from earthquakes. To address the heightened awareness of potential earthquake risks, VERTEX offers PML services to estimate earthquake-related losses as a percent of building replacement costs. Our PML studies identify building elements that can contribute to risk and recommend ways to reduce risk by modifying, mitigating or removing building elements that are most likely to cause damage.
