The Construction team specialise in the design, placement and servicing of insurance and reinsurance programmes for all types of construction projects anywhere in the world.

We act as both a retail and wholesale broker. The majority of our retail clients are project owners but also include contractors, original equipment manufacturers and lenders. Our wholesale clients are mostly overseas insurance brokers who require access to the (re)insurance markets in which we operate and in the majority of cases to our specialist expertise in the construction field.
