The expected boom in global construction projects will require new approaches to managing risks for risk and insurance managers but also presents a growth opportunity for the insurance industry and will hopefully attract new capital and new products to the market.

Population growth and urbanisation, as well as climate change, are expected to be the main drivers in the demand for infrastructure construction and home building in coming years. Climate change and the race to net zero targets are arguably the greatest challenges that face the construction industry, and will lead to big changes in construction processes and methods, while the industry is already undergoing a technological transformation, with digitalisation and growth in modern manufacturing methods. As the sector grows, so too does the risk of greater pollution and waste.

The industry is set to be a global engine for economic growth and recovery from Covid-19 with average annual global infrastructure construction forecast to grow by 5.1% per year. Some of the highest growth rates will be in North America and Asia-Pacific, while Western Europe is forecast to grow by 23%.

The long-term growth in the construction market will bring new challenges to risk and insurance managers and an increased need to transfer risk into insurance programmes. It could also lead to an increase in complex insurance claims.

Agenda to Include Session on:
• A global view: how governments are backing major infrastructure projects
• Stimulus Packages: Impact on the insurance market
• Engineering: the insurance market
• Managing supply chain risk in construction
• ESG: how does the construction industry adapt to changing times?
• The battle for human capital
• Why are construction claims so complex? The insurer’s view
• Weathering the storm: Crossrail
• Construction technology
• Single Project Professional Indemnity (SPPI)
• Renewables: the future?
• Time to wake up to the cyber threat
• An alternative approach: captives and other solutions

• Choose Wisely: How the selection of your Joint Venture partner and delivery model could impact professional liability coverage
• Claims – PI: For this workshop we consider recent Professional Indemnity claims and take a deep dive into these cases, looking at the event, the wordings and the end results.
• Claims – CAR: In this session we will look at Construction All Risks claims cases, drilling down into the specifics of some of the most controversial construction wording clauses.
• Legal risks: This session considers the ways in which risk managers can support their organisations in avoiding the pitfalls of overpromising or providing misleading information about the benefits ‘green’ products or services will provide. We also look at changing legislation in key markets and provide some examples of major litigation regarding the environment and climate change.
• Cyber Coverage: An analysis of cyber risk in the construction industry: a review of cover offered/excluded.
• Mitigating construction risk with parametric triggers: Parametric insurance is an emerging method of providing coverage for costs typically associated with delays • arising out of severe weather conditions or natural catastrophes. This session explores the rising trend of parametric solutions and the types of risks that can be transferred.
