Subsidence Advisory NSW outsources the claims assessment process. Opportunities exist for providers to deliver services to community members whose properties may have been affected by mine subsidence damage. Service providers are required in the following construction and professional services fields: Building Inspector and Estimator, Civil Engineering, Environmental Studies, Geotechnical Engineering, Property Valuer, Quantity Surveying, Rail Engineer, Structural Engineering, Surveyor, Utility and Asset Locating Consultant. Following stakeholder feedback, the NSW Government agreed that using private sector service providers to assess claims for possible damage resulting from mine subsidence would increase efficiency and transparency of the claims compensation process.
