In this IIL claims webinar, Marcus Gresham talks about the difficulties that can arise when damage occurs to modular construction during a construction project.

In this session, Marcus outlines, with practical examples, the risks that can easily be overlooked and the potential consequences for insurers and insured alike.

There are considerable benefits associated with the use of modular construction, which will be briefly explained. However, there are also risks that can be missed. What are they, what happens when they materialise at a critical stage in the life of a project, and what difficulties frequently ensue?

This webinar looks at these issues from different perspectives: those of the contracting parties and those of the project insurers. It also explains how those perspectives influence the practical handling of the various types of insurance claims which can ensue following the occurrence of damage to modular construction.

Learning objectives:

  • How a failure to consider certain sorts of risk can undermine the benefits of using modular construction
  • The importance of planning: for both the best and the worst
  • Issues that often arise under CAR policies (Contractors All Risks Insurance) when damage occurs to modular construction
