EagleView Technologies

Wash.-based EagleView Technologies now offers wall measurement reports for residential properties.

The measurements are derived from high-resolution photographs using patented technology. The report provides a 3D wall area diagram, total square footage of the wall areas, number and total square feet of windows and doors, and north, south, east and west elevation diagrams.

Wall reports can be ordered separately or bundled with EagleView’s roof measurement reports.

Sedgwick Claims Management Services

Sedgwick Claims Management Services plans to open two new Midwest service centers, located in New Albany, Ohio, and Coralville, Iowa.

The Coralville location is contingent on the approval of available job training and economic development incentives by the Iowa Economic Development Authority and the city of Coralville.

Sedgwick anticipates hiring approximately 200 people at each location in the next 24 months. Nearly 60 employees in each location are expected to be hired before the offices become operational in January 2013.

Job opportunities available at the service centers will include customer service representatives, disability claims specialists, leave specialists, nurse case managers, and management, technical and support roles. Additional positions will be added at both locations throughout 2013.

Recruitment for the new positions will begin immediately, with a target start date in November for training purposes.

AIR Worldwide

AIR Worldwide (AIR) expanded its offerings for commercial insurers with a capability for determining losses from natural catastrophes to buildings under construction.

CLASIC/2TM Version 14.0 introduces the ability to model builder’s risk policies for the AIR earthquake and hurricane models for the United States.

The vulnerability of a building to hurricane wind increases rapidly in the initial construction phases and then levels off after windows and doors are closed.

The vulnerability of a building to earthquake ground shaking increases dramatically once the foundation and substructure are complete, and levels off after the addition of the lateral load-resisting system.

AIR model users can estimate losses to builder’s risk policies (commercial and residential) that begin coverage after construction has started by entering a “percentage completion” value into the software.
