Architects & Engineers

Design Professional Focus

We create unique and competitive insurance solutions, working with a wide variety of architects and engineers across Manitoba and all of Canada. APEX Surety & Insurance brings a collaborative, team-based approach to advising clients and building risk management programs that address the specific needs and challenges faced by design professionals. 

With direct access to key insurance markets, both domestically and in Lloyd’s of London, APEX Surety & Insurance advocates on behalf of our clients, attaining class-leading coverage at competitive rates. Beyond handling your insurance renewal, we review insurance contracts (including Professional Service Agreements) and specifications, place project-specific policies and provide claims advocacy and strategic risk management advice. We are familiar with the indemnity language and limitation of liability clauses used in Professional Service Agreements for design firms and can help identify risk and insurance pitfalls.

Certificates of insurance, contract risk review, binders, and policy documents are fundamental to ensuring the efficient operation of your business; we place customer service at the forefront of everything we do and have dedicated resources to ensure timely responses.

As the construction and design industries becomes increasingly prone to disputes, the need for robust insurance coverage is even more important – we see insurance and our strategic advice playing a direct role in protecting what our customers have spent years building.
