Professional indemnity insurance for architectural services and engineers provides peace of mind if you supply anything from design to planning permission and project management services. But, no matter how much experience you have, there’s always a chance you may provide advice in error, leading to compensation claims and even legal action.
We’ve worked with businesses of all shapes and sizes across the UK for more than 30 years, so we understand the challenges you face and the importance of providing independent, impartial and practical insurance advice. Our professional indemnity insurance specialists work with a select panel of insurers to ensure you have the right level of cover for your business – and provide expert advice – at a competitive price.

Professional indemnity insurance provides cover for legal costs and compensation claims from third parties, including your clients and the end user. Claims may come about following the provision of negligent advice or services, resulting in financial loss.
Our specialist PI policies are suitable for a range of architectural professionals, including architects, project managers, town planners, electrical engineers and heating and ventilation engineers.
You need adequate professional indemnity insurance even if you’re providing your advice or services for free.
The recommended amount of cover (often referred to as a “limit of indemnity”) varies according to the professional body that you’re a member of, and the contracts that you’re working on. You can usually find out the minimum amounts required by speaking to them. We can also advise on your individual business, because you may need more.
