CIRIA’s Managing Construction Risk Community of Practice (CoP) brings together practitioners from the construction and insurance sectors with the objective of improving the management of risk and financial performance. 

Through a series of network events and integrated resources the CoP will help deliver more focused collaboration and enhance knowledge transfer in risk management. The events examined within the CoP network include professional indemnity insurance (PII), design, contract works and project insurance.

The benefits and challenges of single project insurance cover for small and medium sized projects
As a cover product, project insurance is commonly used on major infrastructure projects. This Government supported product is often viewed by suppliers as leading to extra costs for little benefit compared to the annual insurance product.
