WPL Publishing Co., Inc., publisher of ConstructionPro Week (featuring Construction Claims Advisor), announces a valuable interactive webinar:

Builder’s Risk Insurance: What Owners and Contractors Need to Know

 Thursday, March 27, 2014 
1:00 – 2:30 PM Eastern Time

Presented by:
Seth D. Lamden
Partner, Neal, Gerber & Eisenberg LLP

Course-of-construction damage to work, materials, and equipment can severely impair the ability of project stakeholders to meet budgetary and scheduling targets due to unanticipated expenses incurred to remove and replace damaged work, repair other work, and prevent additional damage. Resulting delays can lead to other unanticipated expenses, including additional carrying costs and liquidated damages. Builder’s risk insurance is often the most effective way to manage the risk of these unanticipated costs and delays, but only if the coverage provided by the builder’s risk policy is consistent with the expectations of the owner and contractors. It is crucial, therefore, for owners and contractors to understand the types of risks that builders’ risk policies cover – and do not cover – before they purchase builders' risk insurance for a specific project and before losses occur.

This program will provide an overview of some of the most common coverage disputes that arise between builders’ risk insurers and their insureds and will provide best management practices for owners and contractors to follow when procuring builder’s risk insurance and presenting claims to builder's risk insurers to avoid such disputes.

Attend this 90-minute, information-packed program to:

  • Understand the structure of a builder’s risk policy and the types of losses covered by builder's risk policies, including coverage for soft costs and defective construction losses
  • Identify issues to consider when procuring builder’s risk insurance for a specific project
  • Learn how to draft contractual insurance specifications relating to builder’s risk coverage
  • Incorporate best practices when presenting a builder’s risk claim to avoid coverage disputes
  • Integrate builder’s risk coverage and operational property insurance to ensure that there are no gaps in coverage
  • Protect your organization with proven contract clauses
  • And much, much more!

In addition, a 10-to-15 minute period has been reserved at the end of the presentation for an interactive question-and-answer session so you can discuss specific issues or gain additional knowledge about insurance coverage disputes and construction defects.

This webinar is a must if you’re a contractor, public or private owner, subcontractor, construction manager, owner’s representative, architect, engineer or other design professional who is interested in an overview of builder's risk insurance and how it can help protect your organization for losses.
