ORCIG is the market for commercial construction risks. Our core business consists of regional and national specialty trade contractors. We also write commercial general contractors. The general contractor must demonstrate an ability to successfully manage the relationship with their subcontractors through Hold Harmless Agreements and appropriate Certificates of Insurance.
ORCIG’s underwriting success is the result of quality program design, responsible pricing, active safety involvement and proactive claims management. Our Integrated Account Management team ensures complete and timely linkage between underwriting, safety and claims.
ORCIG's overall success lies in its ability to continue to partner with brokers and insureds who are willing to establish long-term goals to achieve a profitable result for all parties.
ORCIG has over 450 construction clients. The classes of operations within this client base range from HVAC specialists to heavy civil engineering. Eighty-five percent of our accounts are trade and specialty contractors.
