Why Lexington

Committed Carrier

Issue: A client’s risk manager approached Lexington for data on key construction loss drivers to determine potential causes of loss. They wanted to address various exposures and manage their overall cost of risk.

Solution: We provided proprietary claims and risk data, detailing  the frequency and potential severity of industry loss drivers. We also provided a risk engineering service plan including insights on how to help prevent or mitigate loss.

Benefit: The client and broker used our expansive view of first-party construction risks to customize their risk management program to the scale and uniqueness of the client’s operations and project exposures.

Why is this important?

Lexington’s vast experience, data, and solutions help clients lower overall cost of risk.

Flexible Solutions

Issue: A client’s multi-year project was halted for several months due to labor, materials, and supply chain challenges.  This delay resulted in a change to project scope and extension of construction timeline.

Solution: Working with the broker and client, we provided both a coverage solution for the standstill period and committed to provide a coverage extension for the anticipated duration of the project.

Benefit: Continuity of coverage allowed the client to continue on  the project through challenging economic circumstances.

Why is this important?

Lexington Builders Risk is there when clients need them,  during difficult times and over the long term.

Dedicated Risk Services

Issue: To better understand the exposures, best practices,  and risk mitigation efforts surrounding a new and trending construction class, a client’s risk manager sought our expertise prior to project initiation.

Solution: Risk engineering, claims, and underwriting provided a multi-faceted risk engineering proposal supported by white papers and insights on how innovative new technology can help lower the frequency and severity  of future losses.

Benefit: Implementing our recommendations resulted in a highly customized program with a lower cost of risk.

Why is this important?

We support client innovation through the depth  of our dedicated risk services.
