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.
- 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
