Opening in 1994, Multicultural Aged Care Services Geelong Inc. (MACS) is a community-based, non-profit organisation providing Commonwealth-funded residential and home based services for the elderly from the Geelong area’s many cultural groups.

Following extensive flooding to the MACS facility in North Geelong due to a rain event in January 2016, Accuraco was engaged by Crawford & Co to conduct to provide loss assessment services involving an extensive audit of damage to the property. A report was required for the interpretation of scope and determination of costs by the Insurance party and Quantity Surveyors.

The reporting included detailed measurement and photographic documentation of each zone within the facility followed by high level cost estimates to inform further direction and decision making on the claim.

The detailed analysis of the facility was undertaken through a combination of approaches including on-site inspection, photographs, cataloging and reporting. Through this process, Accuraco was able to determine through the degree of damage between existing spaces, recently renovated spaces as well as those under renovation.

Accuraco was able to meet the demands of the client who had initially requested a two week delivery for the procurement of both an Audit inspection and reporting.
