Professional Service Indemnity Insurance Guidance
Professional Indemnity Insurance Guidance has been prepared for the CIC following extensive consultation with the Insurance Industry. The consultation found that there were no perceived issues that would prevent designers from obtaining PI insurance when working on projects delivered at BIM Level 2.
Feedback from insurers obtained during the consultation confirmed the widely held view that improved information quality and design coordination that can be secured using Building Information Models provides further incentive for insurers to support their clients in the design and construction markets.
The guidance produced on behalf of CIC by insurance brokers, Griffiths and Armour, sets out the simple steps that insured parties should take when obtaining PI insurance cover for projects where some or all of the design is being delivered using BIM.
