Sample Insurance Quotes for Engineers, Architects, Surveyors, and Other Design Professionals

What factors affect the cost of insurance for engineers and architects? The cost of your insurance reflects how much risk your business has. In order to supply you with an accurate insurance quote, your insurer will need to know…

  • The size of your architectural / engineering firm.
  • The number of employees you have.
  • Projected annual revenue.
  • Any past history of lawsuits or professional errors that led to insurance claims.

Because each engineering, design, or architectural company is different, it's important to work with a company that knows how liabilities differ from company to company. Architects don't all face the same risks. A residential architect has a lower risk profile than a commercial architect who works on large-scale buildings. At insureon, we'll help you find insurance that fits the span of your business operations.

What Does Engineer / Architect Insurance Cover?

What Does Engineer / Architect Insurance Cover?

Engineering insurance can cover your professional liabilities, paying for lawsuits over…

  • Structural issues.
  • Miscommunications with clients.
  • Budgetary mistakes.
  • Missed deadlines.

Other insurance policies will protect you from expensive accidents and injuries that occur because of your work. If a client is injured while visiting a jobsite, General Liability Insurance can cover the lawsuit.

In addition to the financial security offered by insurance, one common reason architects and engineers get coverage is to fulfill a legal requirement. Some insurance — like Workers' Comp — is required by state laws. Other policies — like E&O and General Liability — are typically required in client contracts and lease agreements.
