Abstract

Considers the ways in which property managers can minimize difficulties after a disaster by appreciating potential damage by smoke, water and hazards such as asbestos. Summarizes the benefits of proactive damage management to be: stabilization of damage, effective reinstatement and disaster recovery planning. Examines one case of damage management : Portsmouth City Council′s civic offices. Concludes that property managers should develop closer links with loss adjusters since swift action can make the difference between survival and failure of a business.
