Australia – Construction & Engineering

As the global economy develops, companies are once again expanding their operations. Major construction projects provide a multitude of on-site and off-site risks and delays in completion can have expensive consequences. Our construction policies protect against the cost of physical loss or damage to building works, contract materials and equipment involved in onshore construction projects. In addition, we provide third party liability cover and advance loss of profit coverage.

Our dedicated underwriting team possesses the technical expertise, multi-lingual capabilities and breadth of knowledge necessary to mitigate the specialty risks associated with major construction and erection projects. At Allied World we pride ourselves on offering exceptional client support by being a committed and long-term insurance provider and partner.
