A key aim of the Government's new Construction Strategy is a push for truly collaborative project procurement; however project insurance remains one of the most potentially divisive issues facing the project team. This programme examines a possible solution called Integrated Project Insurance or IPI where one policy covers the entire scheme.

Key learning:

  • An overview of current insurance policies used in UK construction
  • Why are they potentially divisive?
  • How IPI works and the 'pain/gain' ideology at its core
  • How similar insurance schemes fared on projects like Heathrow’s T5
