Mixed Use Cover

All of our warranties can be used in conjunction depending on your development.

Special Acceptance

If the construction cost of your development is £25 million or over we offer specialist cover with our High Value Scheme which includes additional risk management. Developments of 7 storeys and above will also benefit from additional risk management, regardless of construction cost, from our High Value Projects Team.

Building Control

As an approved inspector, we can provide Building Control services alongside our Structural Warranty meaning you will only need one point of contact for all inspection services. This will ensure consistency and minimise discrepancies during inspections.

Builder Registration

To be eligible for this scheme Builders must join the Register. Please note, Housing Associations do not need to join the Register. Registration is part of our application form and can be done before or while you are applying for a warranty.
