Why professional indemnity insurance for Construction Project Managers matters.
The construction sector now engages a broad range of professionals, each with a tightly or loosely defined role, depending upon the size and complexity of the job.
The normal functions of a construction project manager will be to mobilise, organise and co-ordinate the activities of a multi-discipline team to complete a project on time, to budget and to a good quality.
A whole range of situations could cause a claim to be made against you, including failure to control costs or failure to prevent error. PI insurance for construction project managers aims to mitigate the impact of such claims.
The construction industry is facing challenging times, mostly after the Grenfell fire, which has led to insurers reacting quickly in the professional indemnity market. As a result, the professional indemnity market has hardened for construction professionals, with increasing costs and narrowing cover.
We have access to a panel of leading professional indemnity underwriters and insurers here in the UK. Our team are here to understand your requirements and help to get the most appropriate cover for you.
