BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

Zurich adds ‘mass timber’ construction risk coverage

mass timber

Zurich North America said Tuesday it has expanded its builders risk coverage, offering up to $50 million in capacity for commercial construction projects using mass timber.

Zurich’s mass timber builders risk coverage will be available for qualified risks as a project-specific coverage or as part of a master builders risk program, the Schaumburg, Illinois-based insurer said.

Mass timber is a class of engineered building materials fabricated from layers of wood pressed together, often with a strong adhesive under great pressure, Zurich said. 

“Mass timber offers the dual benefits of a sustainable and durable building material,” Patrick McBride, head of construction property at Zurich North America, said in a statement.

In January, Zurich launched a construction weather parametric policy to provide coverage for non-physical-damage-related project delays that traditional builders risk insurance doesn’t cover.
