Background: Our client was undertaking a large construction project and requested the general contractor take on the design scope and contract directly with the engineer and architect on the project rather than directly contracting themselves. Due to the increased exposure, the general contractor increased their fee by $7M to account for potential design build liability.
Solution: As part of our insurance due diligence review, our team had identified a more efficient solution to alleviate the general contractors’ concerns. Corporate Protection Group worked with outside counsel to negotiate errors and omissions (E&O) standards for the general contractor, engineer, and architect agreements. With these new standards implemented, our team was able to work with our client’s insurance broker to place a $10M Owner’s Protective Professional Indemnity (OPPI) program.
Outcome: Based on this approach, we established $15 million in E&O insurance protection at a cost of less than $100,000. The general contractor agreed to drop their $7M change order fee as they had confidence in our insurance solution – saving our client approximately $6.9M on the project.
