Errors and Omissions Insurance for Architects
Your chosen profession as an architect is enormously rewarding. Very few people get to experience the thrill of looking up at a structure, that was just a vision in your head a few months prior. So why do you need to think about Errors and Omission Insurance?
To the rest of us, your work is like magic. We see it, but don’t understand how you did it. As a matter of fact, we don’t understand much about the process at all. We don’t understand how complicated the process is nor the fact that there are so many other design elements and disciplines involved. And we certainly don’t understand that it is you, the Architect, who puts this whole process together like the conductor in the orchestra.
The Strain of High Expectations
At the end of the day, we see a beautiful structure that looks perfect and to us, it is perfect. This, in part, is why your work carries so much risk. Our society’s unrealistic expectation of perfection is part of the problem. Today design professionals are facing more and more complicated design on very tight budgets and short time schedules. It makes the need for Errors and Omissions insurance more critical than ever.
