During December 2015 fires across Victoria caused substantial damage in Wye River, Scotsburn and Barnawartha. Major Projects Victoria engaged Accuraco to manage and administer the Fire Loss Recovery Works.

With experience and capability in the management of Fire Loss, Accuraco assumed overall project management of the Contractor (Grocon) for the recovery works. Our role included all contract administration, programming, cost management and administration. A key part of the role with liaison and communication with stakeholders including local community group and property owners, CFA, DELWP, the Insurers and ESV.

Accuraco was required to travel to the sites regularly to monitor progress, chair meetings and assess claims with formal reporting required to Government.

Applying our knowledge for the processes required, Accuraco documented the pre-event condition at each location, described the damage from the event, described all of the works required to return assets to their pre-event condition  and estimated costs associated with the works. Reporting distinguished between the actual fire damage as a result of fire versus damage as a result of fire suppression as required by the Insurers.
