Construction & Design

Designed and built to protect

A solid foundation of construction and design expertise

Lockton’s foundation was built upon the construction and design industries. Our first 15 years were dedicated to this sector and that dedication remains today, with construction still comprising a sizable share of Lockton revenue. We deliver risk management systems that are truly customized not only to the industry, but to each of our unique clients. Our process is customized to your specific exposures, risk tolerance, and personal preferences. We don’t force cookie-cutter solutions on your organization. Instead, we employ a fluid approach tailored to your needs.
