Chapter 2: Building Your Business Protection Blueprint

Now that you have an idea of the primary risks you face as the owner of an architecture, engineering, or design business, let's take a look at the insurance policies that can help you manage those risks. As you read this section, keep in mind that business insurance policies are a bit like outerwear: having one doesn't mean you don't need the other. If it's cold out, you wouldn't wear a hat and gloves but no coat; if it's risky out, you don't want to skip policies that will keep your business protected.

We've broken this chapter into two sections: first, the basic needs you have as a business owner. These policies offer coverage you'd likely need regardless of your industry. Second, we'll take a look at the policies that help you manage the risks that your line of work exposes you to.
