Employer Controlled Project Insurance

Whatever the size of construction project, as the primary owner or developer responsible for managing contractors, suppliers, financiers and consultants, it’s important to control the controllable and remove uncertainty from the project at every opportunity.

Often cover provided by suppliers or contractors appears to be the most convenient solution when presented at the tender stage of the process.

There are however potential pitfalls for project owners or developers in adopting this more traditional approach to risk transfer.

At Griffiths & Armour, our team of construction industry risk management specialists have developed a solution that addresses all concerns, issues and some of the potential pitfalls experienced by developers which have included:

  • Contractors unable to insure potential loss of revenue and income streams
  • Reliance on suppliers to have sufficient cover in place
  • Duplication of policies by several parties incurring unnecessary costs
  • Excessive time reviewing contractor policy documents and the myriad of exclusions and conditions that risk invalidating your protection
  • Varied contractor cover costs vs project term fixed price option
