Proper risk management for the Alberta construction industry

No single insurance program can blanket all projects, so we assess your situation attentively, and construct coverage options that are as individual as whatever you are building. We offer course of construction insurance policies covering physical damage, soft costs and business interruption, and wrap-up liability programs covering all professionals and trades involved in a project. We handle contract surety bonding and have the power of attorney to issue bonding documents, so that your urgent deadlines are met.

We’re accustomed to insuring all types of construction. These include road building, sewer and pipeline construction, gas and forest plants, site excavation and grading, environmental and site remediation, industrial and commercial building, and single family and multi-family new-home construction. We insure general contractors and all trades.

From builders risk insurance and general liability insurance to commercial auto insurance and injury and property damage, we’ve got the right type of coverage for business owners, project owners and their construction sites.

 

Why do I need Contractor Insurance?

Too often, insurance providers offer standard, packaged solutions they assume will work for all contractors. Our specialists in construction insurance will work with you to review your portfolio, identify any associated exposures and draw up a custom solution that’s suited to your unique needs.

  • Protection for property, job site, tool, supply and equipment losses due to fire, vandalism, theft and more
  • Protection for equipment breakdowns
  • Protection for liability losses due to bodily injuries or third-party property damage
  • Protection for errors and omissions
  • Protection for loss of income due to business interruption and more
