What is a Construction Wrap Up Insurance?

A construction wrap up is a broad term to describe any program where one party of a construction project — the owner, developer, or contractor — purchases insurance for the term of construction. Coverages can include General Liability, Excess Liability, Workers' Compensation, Pollution Liability, and Professional Liability.

What is a OCIP?

An Owners Controlled Insurance Program, or “OCIP” is purchased and managed by the Owner.

What is a CCIP?

A Contractor Controlled Insurance Program, or “CCIP” is purchased on managed by the General Contractor.

Why does a Wrap Up make sense?

A Wrap Up will cover all contractors who are on-site during construction and provide coverage for the statutory period of completed operations (5 - 10 years in most states). A wrap up eliminates the cost of the contractors’ insurance and improves the quality of insurance available. Wrap up insurance offers a definable set of limits for the life of a project, eliminating the year-to-year purchase. A wrap up can provide a more definable cost over the life of a multi-year project by avoiding annual policy reviews.

How large does a project need to be to qualify for a Wrap Up?

For smaller projects of $15M - $100M, a Liability Only Wrap Up — that is, a program that provides coverage to the Owner, GC, and all subcontractors for General and Excess Liability — is achievable. It is fairly common for Residential Construction projects to be insured via a Liability only Wrap Up, due to the need to purchase longer tail coverage than most contractors are able to secure on their own. For projects to include workers' compensation and liability, construction values would need to be over $100M, and in some states $150M.
