Higher Education Construction

Building Your Customized Higher Education Risk Management Plan

Every college or university has its own personality. TSIB knows your university wants to attract top faculty and students while still staying true to that personality. To do this, your facilities—library, business school, science labs and residential halls—need to be state-of-the-art to remain competitive. Higher education construction projects present your university with unique risks and complexities that are a distinct departure from your overall insurance needs.

At TSIB, key members of our brokerage team have direct construction experience. This construction experience gives us a unique perspective on construction risk assessment and risk mitigation. It has enabled TSIB to become one of the country’s premier providers of Controlled Insurance Policies (CIP), or Wrap-Ups. With our underwriting expertise, we know the questions and issues that will be relevant for the carriers. We can present your university’s risk so the most advantageous Wrap-Up program can be developed.

TSIB manages cost and helps prevent losses for our higher education clients.

Higher Education Construction Services Include:

  • Risk Management Consulting
  • Contractual Risk Management—upstream and downstream contract review
  • Wrap-Up Program Design, Marketing and Administration
  • Claims Consulting and Advocacy
  • Insurance Brokerage for Pollution liability, Professional liability, Builders’ Risk, and Owners Protective Professional Indemnity Liability (OPPI)
