HazardHub, the USA’s fastest-growing supplier of geospatial risk data, a 2020 Gartner Cool Company, and 2020 Lloyd’s Lab participant – announces a massive new database of building permits – PermitHub. By the end of 2021, PermitHub aims to be the largest repository of building permits in the United States.
John Siegman, CCA of HazardHub explains, “For the longest time, we have thought about adding building permit data to the litany of data assets available from HazardHub. Our clients use this data to help make more sound underwriting decisions by alerting them to both issues and improvements to properties. The problem is that none of the existing datasets available have met the HazardHub standard for completeness, accuracy, and cost-effectiveness. So we decided to build our own. The result is PermitHub – which will eventually become the largest building permit database in the US.
