Allying with and supporting our other construction and built-environment disciplines, Thornton Surveying is a long-standing service and expertise held by us.

SME, religious and industrial property claims are no less distressing for policyholders who may be faced with the challenge of rebuilding their business and their local community following a loss.
Additionally, our Construction All Risks service is quite unique. Over many years, we have developed this niche business as we have recognised that a skillset based solely on general property adjusting is insufficient. Contract interpretation and alignment, multiple insurable interests, property under construction, defects liability, certification and bond exposure, underscore why specialist expertise is essential for a satisfactory outcome in a situation of complexity.

Everything is now connected. The mass spread of consumer electronics means that computers are no longer confined to industry, but with the cloud, in the palm of every hand.

Such attacks have shown the potential to grind the largest of organisations to a halt.
Thornton Cyber has been a first mover in Incident Management in this field, providing guidance and confidential assistance to understand in real time, the nature and extent of your problems. Leading experts in Legal, IT Forensic and Public Relations are involved as warranted, to influence outcomes with our Incident Manager coordinating the efforts of all disciplines on behalf of the Cyber Insurer.
