WestPac has several professional programs available for most parties involved in the construction process. While some projects pose placement challenges, the marketplace has grown to offer coverages that most contractors need. On top of this, WestPac has evolved its offerings to true architects, engineers, and design-build firms as well.
On the forefront of the construction industry’s risk lies professional liability. Too often, contractors assume only their architects, engineers, and others providing professional services are the only entities that have profesional exposures and thus overlook professional liability coverage. At its core, Contractor’s General Liability provides coverage for 3rd party bodily injury or property damage and not necessarily errors or omissions resulting from rendered professional services. Nor does the GL provide coverage for the vicarious liability of the contractor architect, engineer, or other parting providing professional services.
