builders risk
Construction projects are always unique. You never know where or when a defect will emerge; therefore, risk analysis continues to be a major part of a project’s success. A construction project always involves multiple participants either as organizations or as individuals. Different participants with different experiences and skills usually have different expectations and interests. This mostly will lead to a variation in the outcome and will affect the result of the project at the end. Risk management helps the project owner and contractor meet their commitments and minimize negative impacts on the construction project. Risk management will affect the project’s performance in relation to cost, time and quality.
