IPInitiatives developed the concept of Insurance Backed Alliancing and the IPI (Integrated Project Insurance) Model to facilitate wholesale change in UK construction for all those who similarly share our views that current models are not delivering the value industry and government requires from them. As such we believe it is incumbent on IPInitiatives to steward uptake of the IPI Model until it becomes established.
The unique insurance will only be offered by the underwriters to those licensees who are supported by an appropriate number of authorised providers and accredited/IPI practitioners in key roles. This will maximise the likelihood of value being achieved for the licensees and their partners and suppliers. In addition, a check will be made on any amendments to the standard
contract form to ensure they do not compromise the principles of the model or insurance arrangements.
Clients seeking to use the model (with or without IPInitiatives) can review our list below to talk to businesses in design and delivery including key specialist supplier below. We hope that many more businesses will take up the training options to gain accreditation in the coming year.
