London Market Update: In UK Construction and Engineering, claims will always present with varying levels of complexity requiring multi-disciplinary technical expertise.
The sector’s risk profile is complex with our adjusters handling everything from attritional ‘business as usual’ claims, to the more complex claim types like structural and civil engineering issues as well as losses incurred during construction testing and commissioning phases.
Each area needs an experienced and skilled team to support the customer and to ensure that every claim scenario can be catered for by applying the correct skills.
Crawford Global Technical Services® specialists have been appointed across the full spectrum of losses during 2016 and Jeremy Buckley, managing director, International Construction, said 2017 will see continued demand for the Construction and Engineering GTS™ solution.
“Worldwide, construction and engineering is continuing to grow and the insurance sector continues to require a stable claims process with coherent reporting from experts who understand their chosen subjects and apply a customer focussed approach to claims,” Jeremy said.
