Large construction projects offer significant opportunities but also represent complex business, operational and event risks, which is why specialist Construction Insurance for projects is vital.

At Arthur J. Gallagher, Construction is one of our largest specialist niches and is at the core of our business, built around an experienced team that has assisted clients manage risk for the four largest construction projects in the UK.

The AJG Construction team ensures they are involved at all key stages of the construction project from the review of the contracts, the development of allocation of risks, development of the marketing strategy, liaison with Lenders to the project (if applicable) through to design of the policy wordings, the placing of the agreed insurance programme and on-going service throughout the construction of the project. Clients find that the earlier they involve our team in a project the more value they obtain from our involvement.


Whatever your requirements, you can be sure of a considered and knowledgeable response: our team includes construction specialists who are highly experienced. Our growing client portfolio includes major international companies as well as locally-based operators and contractors. 


Our team has assisted major infrastructure projects both in the UK and internationally. We operate construction broking hubs in London, San Francisco and Sydney and our multi-lingual staff can provide advice wherever you operate or your project is located. Working with owners and contractors on an annual and single project basis, you can rely on us to provide specialist advice on all onshore construction projects.

Our core areas of expertise are:
  • Annual Contractor Insurance Programmes
  • Owner Controlled Insurance Programmes
  • Project Finance – Private Finance Initiative (PFI) and public–private partnership (PPP) projects
  • Lenders Advisory Services
