Provided by Professional Risks


Bespoke insurance to protect small to medium-sized architects from the risks you face building our environment.

As professionals trained in the art and science of building design, architects have an integral role to play in ensuring the safety and security of our built environment.

But even the most experienced architects can find themselves in disputes with clients and contractors. This is why Tokio Marine HCC has developed an insurance programme specifically designed to protect small- and medium-sized architects from the risks they run.

Everything from civil liability and breach of intellectual property (IP) to libel, slander or defamation protection, we have the expertise to ensure that your only worry will be planning your next project.
