Company Profile

With the insurance industry periodically reeling under the effects of punitive claims, assessing losses within a professional frame of reference has become of critical importance.

JSA Loss Consulting Services was formed in 1985 as Jacobs Smit & Associates by two Engineers with both Construction and Insurance Broking experience -- with the objective of providing an effective and specialist claims evaluation service to the Insurance Industry.

The professional practice originally concentrated on Construction/Engineering related claims, but expansion into Plant, Machinery Breakdown/Loss of Profits and Liability developed over the years to meet market demand, which also resulted in expansion into the Electronic equipment market in 1994.

With it's experience in building/engineering/construction costing, JSA is also ideally qualified to handle fire/Assets claims relating to these disciplines in the commercial market.

Risk and Dilapidation surveys can also be undertaken prior to and during project startup.

JSA as it stands today have dealt with a wide variety of commercial engineering disciplines: Roads and bridges. Dams and weirs. Structural concrete and steel work. Lateral support and piling. Electrical reticulation. Pipelines and pump stations. Fuel installations and refineries. Process plants, Industrial & Commercial industries. Electronic equipment.

Workload mainly originates with leading Southern African Insurance Companies. Major local panel appointments include: Mossgas. The Lesotho Highlands Water Scheme. Eskom. Toll Highway Construction Venture. LMG Joint Venture. Rand Water PCI programme. Greater Johannesburg M.L.C. PCI programme, etc.

JSA operates throughout Southern Africa and assignments have been completed in all neighbouring states such as Botswana, Zimbabwe, Namibia, Swaziland, Lesotho, Malawi, Mozambique and the Comores.Recently enquiries for specific assignments abroad has also been received.

JSA Loss Consulting Services is committed to integrity in evaluation and assessment of all claims regardless of complexity and value -- which is demonstrated by the respect held for its specialised contribution to the Insurance Industry. Despite major market changes, the practice has remained focused in it's approach.
