Insurance brokerage, risk management and consulting firm Gallagher has agreed a multi-year insurance partnership with house builder Distinct Developments, to support the business as it grows its client base.

Distinct Developments is a fast-growing house builder, operating across the North West of England. Based in Warrington, Cheshire, the business specialises in the construction and project management of luxury residential developments, working across both new build and refurbishment projects.

Gallagher was appointed as a result of its clear understanding of Distinct Developments’ business and its diverse risk exposures, and how it could support the business in securing a comprehensive insurance and risk management programme tailored to its specific requirements, as well as on the basis of its extensive expertise in the property development insurance sector.

Gallagher is one of the largest providers of insurance and risk management advice to the construction sector, with a client portfolio which includes a broad range of UK developers and construction firms. 

Daryl Jones, Business Development Executive, Gallagher, commented: “House builders firms face a myriad of risks during a project which can cause significant disruption – from contractual issues to equipment damage and theft. Managing these risks requires the support of a specialist broker who can provide companies with tailored advice, to ensure they have sufficient cover in place at a competitive premium, and provide them with the peace of mind they need to focus on running and growing their business.

“Distinct Developments has built up an excellent reputation for delivering luxury, contemporary homes, and we look forward to being part of the business’s growth journey over the coming years.”

Rob Williams, Director, Distinct Developments, said: “We wanted to be sure that we had a broker on our side with the necessary experience and knowledge to achieve insurance cover that was able to meet our requirements. Right from the word go, the team at Gallagher acted quickly and professionally, and were able to go the extra mile to provide a tailored insurance programme for us.”
