When you Build Should You Bond?
Featuring Chad Rosenberg
Tuesday, April 25, 11:00 am – 12:00 pm

Construction is a volatile industry. If a contractor becomes insolvent and defaults on your construction project, the cost to complete can skyrocket. Take a look at how surety bonds—specifically, performance and payment bonds—can help your organization not only in the event of contractor default but in prequalifying contractors to reduce failure frequency. Know what to consider, such as bond form language and surety company ratings and T-listings. And review the claims process.

Construction: A Complex Industry
Featuring Matt Rosenberg
Monday, April 24, 1:45 pm – 3:45 pm

Sort through the complexity of wrap-ups—owner-controlled insurance programs and contractor controlled insurance programs. Learn how they improve overall coverage and achieve premium savings. Look at current trends in their use for risk transfer. Consider best practices for customization, such as defining extended completed operations and consequential damages for owners and general contractors. Sift through regulatory compliance, such as the Silica Rule. And demystify surety bonds so you know what they will and will not do.This session is hosted by RIMS San Diego Chapter.
