Design and Construct Professionals

The team at Australian Risk Advisers have specialised experience in providing advice and arranging Insurance programmes for the unique needs of consultants ensuring they are protected against potential losses arising from taking on design liability either by employing your own in-house design professionals or by assuming liability where you sub-contract out the design element. Once you become responsible for the actual construction of a building, a traditional Professional Indemnity policy will not provide you with adequate protection. You need specialist D&C insurance to protect you against these key exposures:

  • Design failure
  • Inadequate / incorrect advice, design, specification
  • Inadequate supervision / project management
  • Inappropriate / incorrect certification
  • Lack of experience
  • Poor work documentation
  • Poor communication with clients
