About this event

This seminar will explain the practical sides of construction insurance, summarising what insurances are available, what they cover (or what they don’t), how liability periods operate and other things which can have an impact. The effect of important key cases and how the various standard forms deal with insurance will be outlined.

Attendees should leave with a greater understanding of construction insurance including, assessing the appropriateness of liability limits and when it is appropriate to consider joint names insurances, or what other options might be available.
