Building Designer Insurance

For Building Designers, every project is unique and has its complexities.

For Building Designers, every project is unique and has its complexities.

That’s why it is important to ensure you are covered for the vast range of exposures that may be present within the profession.

While in some instances it is not compulsory, governments, major organisations and association schemes often make it a condition of tender, contract or membership that you hold an appropriate level of cover.

Some states also have mandatory requirements in place for building professionals to hold certain insurances to be able to legally practice.

What amount of Professional Indemnity Cover do I need?

Each state in Australia has different requirements for Professional Indemnity insurance. Some states require a limit of $2,000,000 whereas some states require no cover at all. There are also some contractual requirements that also need to be considered that may require a Building Designer to have a higher limit of Professional Indemnity cover.

What does Professional Indemnity Insurance cover me for?

As a Building Designer, you face many different risks in running your business. Professional Indemnity Insurance provides your business with protection against causing a financial loss to your client. We assist many Building Designer clients each year with claims and/or incidents that arise.

With evolving legislation and building industry issues present (non-compliant building materials, exploding balustrades, dodgy wiring), now is as important a time as ever to have the correct Professional Indemnity Insurance in place.

Professional Indemnity Insurance can provide your business with protection from claims relating to:

  • Error in documentation submitted to council
  • Loss of client documentation
  • Wrongful or inadequate advice to your client
  • Acting without proper instructions from your client
  • Failure to act in accordance with your client’s instructions, or at all.
  • Failure to advise client adequately

Each policy wording is different with some better than others. It is important to ensure you have the correct cover in place for your business.
