Giffin Koerth Responds to Fort McMurray Fire

The experts at Giffin Koerth are ready.

Giffin Koerth is committed to helping the residents of Fort McMurray get back on their feet. To do this, we are partnering with various insurers, adjusters and restoration companies to help understand the damage sustained.

Our intended plan of action will be to release a small assessment team to the loss site, to be followed-up with further resources as they are required. Giffin Koerth professionals, able to mobilize to Northern Alberta, are from the following areas of expertise:


  • Structural
  • Geotechnical


  • Hazardous Materials
  • Subsurface / Spills


Giffin Koerth will maintain a support team in Toronto to execute administrative tasks and to provide off-site expertise.

Secondary areas where Giffin Koerth is able to provide assistance beyond the immediate front-of-mind emergency disciplines, yet very much related to the loss events ongoing, are listed below.

  • Mechanical, Materials & HVAC
  • Construction Claims
  • Renewable Energy
  • Fire Investigation
  • Road Safety
  • Mining
  • Water & Wastewater Infrastructure

Giffin Koerth’s strength lies in the breadth and depth of our team and we are happy to assist in any way we can during this difficult time.
