Contractor and Construction Insurance

2 men discussing construction plans

Construction industry insurance for today’s risks

Construction industry

Labor shortages, severe weather and increasing use of technology are just a few of the forces complicating risk management for construction contractors and developers. Construction sites are inherently dangerous places. Contractors and project managers need to be aware of all job site risks, including new and emerging risks. Contractor and construction insurance solutions, designed to help protect the business, job sites and work crews, are critical to maintain operations and help ensure project success. Coverages including General Liability, Builders Risk, Professional Liability, Workers’ Compensation, Umbrella and more should be a part of each construction risk management program.
