What construction project insurance do I need?

If you’re an owner, contractor, engineering consultant, or project partner, the risks you face in the construction sector are varied. Depending on your requirements, you may be best suited to a solution that includes covers such as:

  • Owner controlled insurance (OCIP) – enables owners and developers to arrange an insurance cover that’s most appropriate to each individual project. Find out more
  • Latent defects – covers physical damage to a property caused by defective design, materials, workmanship, construction or site preparation, undiscovered at the date of practical completion. Find out more
  • Cyber liability – helps protect you from hacking, loss of confidential employee data and cyber exposures from integrated project delivery (IPD) and building information modelling (BIM). Find out more
  • Professional indemnity (PI) – protects professionals against potential claims for injury, damage or loss caused by professional incompetence or negligence. Find out more

Owner controlled construction project (OCIP) insurance

Can you be sure that the cover arranged by someone else, such as a contractor, is adequate for your project? Cover arranged by the employer provides control over the policy, costs and ensures claims are paid directly.

Latent defects insurance

When third parties have inadequate cover or cease trading, you can be left exposed to undiscovered risks. Latent defects insurance helps protect you in these scenarios, filling the gap in standard property insurance policies.
