|Sedgwick Acquires Construction Services Company|
By Lonce Lamonte, editor - March 2, 2021
Sedgwick, based in Memphis, Tennessee, today announced that it acquired Construction Services Company (CSC), a building consulting firm headquartered in California.
CSC was founded just after the aftermath of the 1994 Northridge earthquake.
The transaction extends the reach of Sedgwick’s building consulting practice in the western United States.
Founded in 1997, CSC provides cutting-edge loss assessment perspectives with a wide array of services focusing on the varied needs of the claims industry. Extensive backgrounds in building code compliance, coupled with years of construction experience, enable CSC’s professionals to successfully foresee, understand, and convey project issues in a clear and proactive manner, reducing the likelihood of unexpected costs or delays for clients.
“This acquisition adds hardworking, experienced, and knowledgeable professionals to our team and offers significant advantages to clients,” said Tom Simoncic, president of Sedgwick’s property Americas division. “During these unprecedented times, we are thrilled to expand the footprint of Sedgwick’s building consulting practice to meet the changing needs of customers in any situation.”
Sedgwick offers a range of specialized building consulting services to help insurance companies and their customers through the steps involved in filing claims, receiving estimates, and giving technical advice for property damage. Sedgwick acts as a partner to clients while managing the process to help control costs and improve outcomes. The expertise of Sedgwick’s building consultants includes alternative dispute resolution for contracts and costs, construction schedule mitigation, appraisals, advanced imaging and documentation using 3D imagery and drone technology, and mitigation bill review and negation.
“The CSC model is one of integrity, professional work ethic, foresight, understanding, experience and accountability,” said Harry Parrish, founder of CSC, who joins Sedgwick as vice president. “Joining forces with Sedgwick seems organic, as we share similar values and a deep commitment to delivering excellence for customers. Together, we will offer the market best-in-class building consulting solutions to meet clients’ diverse needs.”
