When you own your own startup or boutique architecture firm, you're responsible for a lot. Unlike architects at bigger firms, you're usually involved with all aspects of your business - from project acquisition and predesign services to helping your clients get construction bids and overseeing the building site. You're also responsible for advertising, managing your books, and buying a small-business insurance plan.
In 2010, only 24 percent of all architects were self-employed - fewer were running their own small firms. How many insurance providers have worked with enough small or startup architectural firms to fully understand the type of coverage a business like yours needs? Let's just say: You can't trust everyone. That's why insureon works with agents who specialize in the insurance needs of architecture firms like yours. Below, we've compiled a list of the small-business insurance policies your firm needs most…
Remember: Each one of these policies is adjustable, so you can add coverage you need and subtract coverage you don't. In the end, you'll end up with a policy customized to address the individual risks and exposures of your architectural firm - and not the firm down the street.
