There is never an end to new construction no matter what city you live in. We know that this continuous growth and expansion is made possible by the protection provided by the insurance industry. So what are the coverages included in a COC or Builders Risk policy and what types of losses generally occur? Attend this seminar and learn more about this important aspect of our industry and our economy.


  • Understand the purpose of a COC policy
  • Define who is deemed the insured
  • Review common exclusions and their impact on a loss
  • Examine how the COC policy is applied at the time of a loss
  • Discuss how the courts mitigate COC lawsuits
