In construction, managing risk effectively can mean higher profits, lower operating costs, and capital that works harder – and smarter. As part of your advisory team, Marsh will show you how.

More than 2,500 construction clients serviced by 1,000+ construction experts around the world.

While the construction industry has rebounded from the financial crisis, margins have generally remained tight. As a result, some firms are seeking new sources of revenue and profitability. Meanwhile, a shortage of skilled labor and risk of subcontractor default are concerns, adding more uncertainty to the mix.

Whether you’re a contractor, trade, builder or developer, or an architect, designer, engineer or consultant, Marsh can helps you assess risks and opportunities to find ways to working capital more efficiently. We measure your firm’s appetite for risk, recommend solutions that meet your needs, and take your program to market knowing the best markets for the best structure and pricing.

Our brokers combine deep construction and design industry expertise with our industry-leading analytics and predictive modeling engines to determine which risks to retain or transfer to make optimal risk-finance decisions, and then implement cost-effective solutions.

We take a fresh look at your risks, help you see around corners, consider all options, and work with you to make informed decisions on how best to protect and deploy capital and resources. We always look to the bottom-line outcome for a better risk. Our objective is to lower costs, which translates into enhanced margins and a stronger balance sheet.
