ARCHITECT AND ENGINEER INSURANCE

Our Architect and Engineer insurance coverage is comprehensive coverage that can Exceed an architect’s or engineer’s professional liability insurance needs. Because architects and engineers are likely not bondable and do not have product inventory like manufacturers or retailers, a professional liability insurance policy is likely their largest asset. The policy for architects and engineers itself will generally serve as a prerequisite to be considered for more desirable contracts, projects or clients. This means that such coverage, in addition to providing exceptional liability protection itself, is in fact a competitive advantage for architects and engineering firms.
