National Ground Risk ModelTM

Accessible ground risk scores for every property, land parcel and asset.

National Ground Risk ModelTM


The National Ground Risk ModelTM (NGRM) enables scalable, cost-effective and instant analysis of ground risk on all 29 million GB properties, 50 million structures and 30 million land parcels.

A simple risk scoring system across subsidence, mining, coastal erosion and landslides ensures ease of use by professionals across multiple sectors, including banking, insurance, planning, property and the public sector.

For the first time, organisations are able to obtain rapid assessment of all ground risks in their planning, operations and decision making, and minimise potential costly consequences.

NGRM: ClimateTM


Next generation ground risk assessment

NGRM: ClimateTM provides organisations with an expertly-modelled dataset to understand how ground risk can impact their balance sheet under a changing climate.

Covering 100% of Great Britain, NGRM: ClimateTM uses the latest UK Climate Projections (UKCP18) to identify the impact on property, land and assets from ground hazards such as coastal erosion, subsidence and landslides for each emission scenario.

For resilient lenders, insurers and other businesses to understand the impact of projected ground risks.

Ground hazards present a hidden risk to society


Each year, ground hazards like soil, geological and mining subsidence, coastal erosion and landslides cause damage and disruption to UK property, land and infrastructure.

These hidden hazards are varied, widespread and complex. Existing information products fail to translate the risk into actionable insight for a non-technical audience.

Starved of accessible and authoritative ground risk information, organisations and governments make decisions each day worth millions of pounds with under-informed views of ground risk, which can have costly consequences.

Subsidence

Subsidence presents an approx. £40billion liability to property.

Mining

Mine entries can reduce property value by almost 30%.

Coastal Erosion

Homes worth a combined £19billion are at risk of coastal erosion.

Landslides

Landslides cause over £10million in financial losses annually.
