Builders Risk

The construction industry comprises 159,792 businesses

A 50-unit condominium under construction was recently destroyed in a fire with damage estimated at $20 million. The 159,792 businesses that make up the construction industry all have exposures that can lead to similar, significant losses.

Severe and unexpected costs can often arise from property damage at worksites. In some instances a project may be delayed or completely halted due to the damage. With homeowners and commercial property policies typically excluding buildings under the course of construction, it is essential that your clients obtain tailored protection.
