Insurance Coverage for Construction Risks
By Timothy L. Pierce, K&L Gates, Los Angeles and Jacquelyn S. Celender, K&L Gates, Pittsburgh
There are many different types of insurance available for construction risks. It is important for owners and contractors to think critically at the beginning of any construction project about the risks inherent to the project and the types of insurance available to them to protect against such risks. Additionally, it is imperative that policyholders understand the benefits and limitations of different insurance policies.
This presentation explores (i) the basic forms of insurance coverage available for construction risks, (ii) wrap-up programs — owner controlled insurance programs (OCIP) and contractor controlled insurance programs (CCIP), (iii) common issues policyholders face when seeking coverage for a construction related loss under commercial general liability (CGL) policies, and (iv) practical considerations for the coverage construction lawyer.
