Property / Builder’s Risk Insurance
Understanding the nature of the contractor’s operations from both the main office or fabrication plants as well as on projects with unique construction features, occupancy, protection and exposure (aka COPE) is critical to the success of any contractors’ insurance program. Each phase of a project brings new exposures. We know the nuances of construction and the nuances of the applicable coverage.
Builders Risk insurance policies in particular may contain hidden limitations that need to be addressed and removed where possible. We recognize the need to compare and contrast our insurance carrier policy forms to ensure the broadest protection is placed at the best possible price while projects are under construction. From the duration of the project to the location to the nature of the construction itself, each aspect of the exposure needs to be carefully evaluated with the correct coverage placed.
Professional Liability Insurance
Professional liability insurance extends beyond traditional architectural and engineering firms. Construction firms today need to have a sound understanding of professional risk and the ways to manage and finance that risk. Whether it’s vicarious professional liability from subcontracting design, responding to performance specifications under contract, or merely offering construction expertise during constructability reviews, construction firms are increasingly exposed to professional liability. At Construction Risk Partners, we work with the professional liability experts who have construction, legal and insurance related expertise to effectively manage this risk.
