The Builder’s Risk policy is
designed to provide broad coverage; however, it does not cover all property
connected to the construction project nor does it cover every risk.
Understanding the dynamics involved in handling first-party claims for Builder's
Risk from multiple perspectives involved in the claims process is
integral. Explore how the different parties involved bring their own
unique skill sets to achieve the successful management of the claim when a loss
occurs. A case study will provide a practical example of how things play
out in a real-world scenario.
• Understand how first party claims differ from third party claims;
• Navigate the claims process while separating between hard costs and soft costs;
Identify the key roles and experts required to deliver a successful outcome for all parties.
