Construction insurance is a specialist class of insurance with a considerable amount of complexity, even on some small projects. When you visit cities around the world, cranes dominate the skyline. The demands on insurers to provide cover and understand the complexity of the insurance needs of the builder are increasing. The expectation is that the intermediaries and insurers selling this class of business will take an active role in providing risk management solutions to the customer.

This Four-day technical seminar will provide attendees with an understanding of construction insurance and the key risks that surround a project. The workshop is led by an experienced and well known subject facilitator who uses interactive learning methods to enhance the learning process. The delegates will be taught the technical aspects of the insurance coverage and also shown how claims are handled. The focus will be given on two main documents –  the Contraction All Risks (CAR) and Erection All Risk (EAR) policies both of which are a requirement under various local and international construction contracts (FIDIC, for example).

At the end of the seminar, participants will leave with an understanding of:

  • The key risk management and underwriting considerations for construction
