We have more than 25 years’ experience helping architects with Professional Indemnity and other variegated risk management needs. Our clients range from sole practitioners to the largest international practices, including some of the UK’s leading firms. 

We enjoy close relationships with - and direct access to - the vast majority of insurers who actively underwrite architects.


Why architects choose Howden

Some of the broadest PII coverage in the market

Clients see the benefit of a Professional Indemnity policy wording written by a broker rather than the underwriter – our terms are more generous, as we go out of our way to make your life as easy as possible. 

Always ready to add value 

We provide in-house advice relating to contract queries, appointments, collateral warranties and framework agreements. We’re also happy to offer bespoke risk management services.

Proven track record handling architects’ claims 

We have a proven ability to handle multi-jurisdictional claims and to structure insurance policies to ensure coverage takes account of local legal and regulatory requirements

We respond proactively to your needs, challenging insurers’ initial responses, where appropriate.

We also have 25+ years’ expertise in: 

  • Office & Contents Insurance
