What we do for you:

We work with all the various different parties in a major project: project promoter, developer, main and/or EPC Contractors, lenders, key contractors, nominated subcontractors and related project stakeholders.

We take a  ‘hybrid’ approach and offer a holistic program structure ie Principal Controlled Insurance Program (PCIP) covering the full suite of risks, eliminating gaps and achieving the economies of scale.
