Construction Insurance

Tailor-made policies for building companies

We have a specialist team at Axis Insurance that has in depth knowledge and understanding of the construction industry. We have many clients in the industry ranging from builders of single family homes through to large commercial, office and industrial buildings. This experience and knowledge means that we can make the insurance process an easy one for you and your company and you won’t have to explain the processes and timelines of a building project.

Construction projects of whatever size can be complex and dangerous. While a building is being constructed the risks are many and varied – from raw materials to construction to owners and sub-contractors. Insurance for projects can be complex and policies are needed in several discrete areas. These include Commercial General Liability, Course of Construction, Professional Liability, Property, Builder’s Risk and Wrap-Up Liability Insurance.

Thanks to the experienced and knowledgeable team at Axis, we can guide you through the insurance buying process and ensure that the coverage you buy not only covers you in the way you’d expect, but also avoids nasty surprises if things do go wrong, and offers excellent value for money.

As you would expect, there are specialist insurers in the construction business and Axis Insurance Managers Inc. has developed very strong relationships with them. We have worked hard to create insurance programs that address the specific needs of our clients in building. Our long experience and thorough understanding of the construction business means we can work with underwriters to create coverage which isn’t overpriced and has the correct enhancements and special provisions needed. Securing the very best insurance for our clients is our core business and it is that approach which sets us apart.

For our clients who operate internationally, we are able to provide insurance on a worldwide basis thanks to our partnership with UNiBA Partners - one of the world’s largest networks of independent providers of risk management, insurance broking and employee benefits services. Our partnership with UNiBA Partners enables us to give our clients the benefit of strong and independent businesses that have local knowledge, as well as being committed to collaboration, partnership and top class customer service.
