Insurance for Your Construction Business

After many years of experience working with construction companies, from local general contractors to national entities, we know that protecting your business from risk requires a deep understanding of the industry.

No matter the size, your business can benefit from our experience and learn to address your key areas of risk with solutions to keep your workplace safe, including construction ergonomics; crane, scaffold, and excavation safety; and more. Our risk control consultants and property risk engineers also work to help identify ways you can lower your total cost of risk.

Our industry specialization spans beyond risk control. We have dedicated industry underwriters for larger, more complex risks who focus exclusively on construction. In addition, we engage lawyers who are experts in construction defect and accident liability, and our specialized claims units excel at handling complex and catastrophic construction claims.

We work with a variety of businesses, including:

  • General building contractors*
  • Heavy construction contractors
  • Specialty trade contractors

  • Inland marine insurance (builder's risk, contractor's equipment, installation floater)
  • Owners and contractors protective liability (OCP)
  • Project-specific coverages (e.g., wrap-ups, joint ventures)
  • Railroad protective liability
  • Surety bonds
