Working in the construction industry, you face obvious dangers. But being underinsured could be the biggest of them all.

With specialist construction insurance, you’re covered against physical accidents on site, as well as negligence claims if, for example, a project doesn’t match the original plans.

Our plans cover site manager and inspector roles, BREEAM home assessors, construction managers, construction consultants, electronics engineers, town planners and health and safety officers amongst many others.

Protect your business from crippling legal bills and compensation pay-outs with tailor-made construction insurance for a great-value, monthly cost.
