Insurance for Builders

Your Peace of Mind
When a builder buys insurance, they are buying a peace of mind. A peace of mind that should a claim arise their liabilities and assets are protected. It's as simple as that. 
 
So what are the key risks?
Building involves a lot of stakeholders like, developers, design consultants, trades, local authorities, manufacturers, suppliers and so on. Some of the site conditions can be very challenging and involve a lot of risk. When something happens, are lot of people are affected.
 
Builders can be quite frustrated dealing with changes to scope, specifications, government directives and complex project management issues whilst expected to protect their margins that moves from month to month. Whilst many may succeed with reward for effort, some are lucky to break even by the end of the project. Others are better off doing something else. 
 
Risk increases when there are poorly written contracts and lack of proper procedures to administer contract terms. Bad communication and workflows systems between site and office teams to monitor safety and quality can lead to catastrophic consequences. Material and labour shortages can compromise quality with the threat of extreme, unforeseen weather events that can cause significant damage or delays. What's more, cybercrime is now a real and present threat, most especially to those construction businesses which often use insecure connections from mobile workplaces, sharing files and data with stakeholders outside the business. Most at risk are those builders who do not have a good construction software to manage all their information and data.
