Building and Engineering Services

Our building and engineering services insurance solutions have been developed to offer comprehensive cover, partnered with outstanding risk management advice, to support a range of businesses within this sector.

Making sure that businesses installing and maintaining crucial utilities such as heating, power and lighting have the appropriate insurance solution and risk management provision in place is vital, as these businesses have more complex risks than many others. Our insurance solutions provide peace of mind that, if something does go wrong, you are covered. Whatever part of a site your work on, and whatever role you carry out, we can arrange the right insurance solution to protect your business.

  • We have over 30 years’ experience arranging insurance cover for the building and engineering services sector.
  • We can carry out a confidential review of your current insurance provisions, to identify if there are any gaps in your current cover
  • We are specialists in arranging insurance solutions for all sizes of business, from sole traders to those with thousands of employees
  • We can arrange extensions to our liability insurance, such as accidental asbestos discovery and financial loss

At Miles Smith, we don’t just provide you with insurance products. We’ll look at how you’re working, and what you are working with, profiling your business and adjusting your cover accordingly. In the modern day with monitoring devices, automatic shut-offs, connection to the internet-of-things and leakage detectors, it’s critical that we understand everything before providing you with the most appropriate cover.

Whether you have 2 employees, or 200, we are experienced in arranging insurance solutions for businesses of all sizes, operating in your sector. Our approach is all-encompassing and starts with us taking the time to understand you and your business and the risks that you face, once we have done that we will present our findings and work with you to create the insurance solutions to best protect your business.

In the building and engineering services sector, arranging cover for just the standard insurance products can seem like a sensible commercial decision, but it may leave you exposed.

Take cyber-attacks as one example, according to the government, 81% of large businesses and 60% of small businesses suffered a cyber-attack in the last year. With the average costs for cyber-attacks running into the hundreds of thousands of pounds, it is vital that you work with an insurance broker who understands these risks and can arrange suitable protection and advise on appropriate risk management solutions to ensure your business is covered against this risk.
