Shepherd Chartered Surveyors has secured the instruction by competitive tender to provide insurance reinstatement valuations for the two children’s hospices operated by CHAS (Children’s Hospice Association Scotland), a Scottish charity that provides the only hospice services in Scotland for children and young people with life-limiting conditions.
Under the terms of the instruction Shepherd will survey Rachel House in Kinross, Scotland’s first children’s hospice which opened in 1996 and Robin House in Balloch, which opened in 2005, together with associated CHAS properties.
Graeme McDonald, Head of Building Surveying at Shepherd Chartered Surveyors, said, “We are delighted to be able to assist CHAS with these valuations and would stress to all organisations the importance of undertaking a regular review of their insurance reinstatement figures to ensure that they are adequately covered.
“This instruction is the latest in a number of insurance reinstatement valuations we have undertaken this year for our commercial clients, as organisations seek to determine whether there are any savings to be made on their premiums whilst ensuring that their properties are adequately insured against such perils as fire and flood damage.”
Both hospices are purpose-built multi million pound facilities and each can provide ongoing support for up to 200 families across Scotland each year.
