Examples or Scenarios

General Contractor  

Our insured, a general contractor, was retained to construct a school using a design/build delivery system. They entered in to an agreement with a design professional to provide the design for the project. The agreement contained indemnification and hold harmless clauses, releasing them from the design professional. During construction, it was discovered that the design contained an error which resulted in the school being elevated several inches above the existing roadways. The insured made a demand under the indemnification and hold harmless provisions of the www.beazley.com design professional’s contract. Unfortunately, the design professional declared bankruptcy and the insured remained professionally liable to the project owner. 

Construction Management  

Our insured, a construction management firm, was responsible for the management of multiple subcontractors on a project. During construction, a change order was issued by the prime architect. The insured failed to coordinate, manage and report changes to the owner and the sub-contractors which resulted in project delays and contingent business interruption damages. As the insured made an error during the course of their professional services, the policy responded covering the costs and damages associated with the delay.
