In-depth engineering and construction insurance expertise

Construction typically grows in line with a country’s GDP and a thriving infrastructure development lies at the heart of this. When one considers the range of risk factors, both on and off site, that could potentially impact large-scale construction projects, it is critical that a developer considers insurance cover which offers effective risk management and risk transfer solutions in the event of a calamity or adversity during the construction process.
