The description of this program is only a summary of available coverages. Actual policy language will dictate the scope of coverage in the event of a claim. We encourage policyholders and their agents, to read the full policy form and any applicable endorsements for full terms and conditions

By aligning with TRU, large Developers and General Contractors (GCs) will have the advantage of our custom coverage programs and life cycle risk management approach.

Large GCs and developers face complex construction projects, which entail numerous risk factors far beyond those present for in-place property risks: collapse of incomplete structures, fire/theft/water-damage of construction materials staged on the site, fire-exposures related to construction activities such as welding, roof-tarring, system testing, and water intrusion. But far beyond just insuring the “unusual risks” that these projects face, a savvy contractor or developer aligns themselves with construction specialists like TRU because of the value TRU can add with regards to critical risk factors such as exposure identification and mitigation, project planning, onsite loss prevention, and engineering services. These are the differentiators that limit uncertainty and can save contractors money in the unfortunate event of a loss.

Working with TRU helps brokers win business with their GC and developer clients and drive bottom line results. All contractors and developers are market-driven to find novel ways to protect themselves against unexpected losses and other sources of uncertainty. Budgets are stressed and insureds and financing sources are more demanding than ever. That’s where TRU’s expertise and ability to customize coverage programs really makes a difference for our brokers’ clients.

The TRU approach to providing insurance for construction projects has many “value add” elements. TRU’s comprehensive risk management method commits our in-house engineering resources for a regular and rigorous schedule of loss prevention inspections. This serves the vital purpose of informing all parties —insureds and brokers alike—about critical exposures, project conditions, and mitigation steps that should to be considered to reduce the likelihood of costly damage and/or delay scenarios.
