Builders’ Risk Insurance in Alberta

Builders’ risk insurance, also known as course of construction insurance, is designed to cover property during the course of construction, including renovation or repair. It’s meant to provide broad coverage to the building and should be purchased in the early stages of the project (before construction begins). Standard property insurance policies are not equipped to cover the additional risks and responsibilities that come along with this type of work, which makes builders’ risk insurance a must. These policies provide financial protection against loss or damage to integral materials and fixtures of the structure due to

  • fire;
  • lightning;
  • wind; and
  • vandalism

Builders’ risk policies don’t cover every risk, as they are just one of many insurance options you have available to yourself as a construction business. For example, it’s common for earthquakes and floods to be excluded from a standard policy. The team at ARC will work with you to create a customized plan that suits your unique business needs.

Are You Protected?

Lawsuits are expensive, time consuming and, if they are big enough, can ruin a business completely. By making sure you have the right coverage in place, you can feel safe in the event you come across any of these common construction claims:

  • Project delays: A claim is filed because the project is taking longer than was initially agreed.
  • Price acceleration: If a contractor has to exceed the original project budget to finish on time or ahead of schedule, disagreements can arise from the client who is expected to pay these additional costs.
  • Property damage: A claim is filed due to damaged property that the client believes was the fault of the contractor.
