As architects and engineers, you are highly specialized and technical professionals. Furthermore, the decisions you make on form and function build and shape the world around us, and it is a complex undertaking. For example, a mistake in calculations could result in construction delays, or worse, a collapsed building. Too often, the accusations of negligence or professional malpractice can stain your reputation and cost a fortune.
Every project is unique and has its own risks which should be insured to mitigate any unforeseen damages, risks, or claims. Depending on the situation, you could be held partially or fully responsible. Therefore, choosing the right insurance coverage for your firm is vital, as it can protect against a variety of risks.
