BIBA launches new specialised Environmental Contractors scheme through Direct Insurance London Market for members

2nd May 2017

Environmental Contractors require complex, insurance cover and can very often find themselves without all of the cover that their specialised industry requires. Because of its nature BIBA is delighted to launch a new scheme exclusively for members that incorporates the range of covers this sector needs.

The scheme is arranged by Direct Insurance London Market, itself a BIBA member and is available immediately.

The new scheme provides a range of covers for the often intricate needs of this broad and specialist sector, all under one product. It is suitable for businesses operating across the environmental contracting industries and includes a range of covers including:

• Multiple classes of coverage under one policy including EL, PL, Plant, Contractors Pollution Liability, Environmental Impairment Liability and Professional Indemnity as well as material damage cover for premises and motor fleet.
• High limits of indemnity
• Worldwide coverage where required
David Bearman, CEO, Direct Insurance said: “We are delighted to have partnered with BIBA on our new Environmental Contractors scheme. Our focus on building comprehensive solutions in niche areas means we are now able to extend a brand new offering to BIBA members throughout the UK, delivering tangible benefits to them and their clients. We look forward to developing a long standing relationship with both BIBA and its members”.

Mike Hallam, Head of Technical Services, BIBA said: “Many of our members are more than comfortable dealing with a range of contractors, but this sector is highly specialised and it’s fantastic to be able to offer them this new product as an additional client benefit. We look forward to working with the team at Direct Insurance to make this a success.”
