Infrastructure & Construction

Infrastructure & Construction

We understand the diverse insurance needs involved in infrastructure and construction – the construction itself, the people, the transport of critical cargo, delay in start-up, and the environment – and our cross-lines approach coupled with our industry knowledge satisfies those needs. Our engineers have the industry experience to help clients control the risks, and our claims professionals have years of experience with complex, multi-party claims.

Our broad business appetite is backed by strong capacity, and we have substantial experience insuring infrastructure and construction across a spectrum of high-end project types: 

  • Roads, tunnels, rail and bridges
  • Power stations and utilities
  • Desalination plant, waste and water treatment
  • Cement plants
  • Pulp and paper mills
  • On and offshore pipelines
  • Oil, gas, petrochemical/chemical plant, refineries
  • Airports and ports
  • Hotels and casinos
  • Hospitals and prisons
  • Metal and mineral processing plant, mine infrastructure
  • Bulk storage terminals
  • Telecommunications
  • Manufacturing facilities
  • Government (all levels) construction and infrastructure.

We understand and can arrange insurance for multiple delivery methods of construction projects, from principle controlled, to subcontractors and everything in between.

Material Damage and Delay in Start Up

Liberty has the business appetite, capacity (US$150 million PML) and in-depth understanding of technically complex risks to provide effective insurance cover for major infrastructure and construction projects. At the other end of the scale, we also provide comprehensive cover - especially multi-product solutions - to smaller and less complex projects.

We have an in-depth understanding of the financial implications of projects' delay in start-up (DSU). In the event of DSU, our cover is designed to help protect the financial viability of the project (from the owner's perspective), and to help ensure successful financing of private sector and private/public sector projects (from the lender's perspective).

At a glance:

  • Covers contract works and DSU
  • Ability to provide bespoke cover to address project-specific insurance needs
  • Capacity to underwrite long-term projects.

Environmental Impairment Liability

The financial and business interruption implications following an environmental incident can be significant, especially when the event generates substantial publicity. More prescriptive and stringent legislation, heightened media and community awareness, along with the possibility of delayed and protracted ‘long-tail’ claims, make businesses of all kinds increasingly vulnerable either as the cause or the victim of an environmental incident.
