Association of Consultant Architects

What can we do for you?

We are a specialist professional risks insurance broker and the appointed professional indemnity insurance (PII) broker for Association of Consultant Architects members. With more than 20 years of experience in PII, we understand the challenges and risks you face in your day-to-day working life.

As an architect, you use your creativity and expertise to transform visions into reality, helping to improve the quality of life of the many people who benefit from the places you build. Working in this environment, you need to be assured that you have the right support in place to feel confident and free to push boundaries and take calculated risks in order to enhance people’s lives. We make sure we take the time to get to know you and your individual needs so we can build a professional indemnity insurance (PII) solution that offers you peace of mind and the protection you need.

Risk management

At Marsh Commercial, we offer risk management advice to help mitigate the day to day risks architects face. We also have a dedicated in-house claims team to help guide them through the claims process step by step, helping to get the right resolution.

What our clients say

"Like many practices we have been shocked by the contraction of the professional indemnity insurance market in recent months – particularly the withdrawal of our previous insurers and widespread refusal amongst those that remain to cover everyday works such as basements, even those completed some time ago. The Association of Consultant Architects' appointed scheme broker, Marsh Commercial, worked tirelessly to find us new cover in time to allow my practice to continue and I cannot recommend them enough."
