Merit’s Construction team has the experience and knowledge to deliver comprehensive risk management solutions that are both innovative and cost effective. We utilize traditional insurers, specialty “MGA” programs and the London market. The transfer of risk is often a “triangular” process. We are successful because we have great relationships with both our clients and our insurance partners. Merit’s construction clients include a diverse group of companies:
- Architects & Engineers
- General Contractors
- Artisan Contractors – All Trades
- Street & Rural Construction
- Underground Infrastructure Contractors
- Project Developers
- Concrete & Masonry
- Home Builders
- Remodeling & Restoration
- Landscaping & Janitorial Services
Merit works hard to know how your business works. We want to know what makes your organization unique and understand the goals you are trying to accomplish. Merit breaks your workflow into separate segments such as demolition, design and development, building materials, environmental considerations and of course the actual project’s construction. At each level we look at your company’s exposure to 3 categories of loss: property, human capital and third-party liability. We then design the right plan for your company. In addition to the traditional placement of insurance for risk transfer, we look at alternative risk funding mechanisms such as large deductible plans, loss sensitive plans and risk “pooling” plans.
Merit’s Construction team often works closely with members of our Real Estate team to deliver a coordinated effort that brings together all parties involved in your project. The relationship between owners, architects, contractors and subcontractors is often complex, but our team can make the process much more manageable and seamless.
