We are fundraising for Save the Children – Christmas Jumper Day

It has now become a tradition for the Self-Build Zone and the Build-Zone team to take part in the annual Christmas Jumper Day on the 16th of December.

Christmas Jumper Day is all about getting silly for a serious cause. People across the UK will be dressing up in their festive knits on the 16th of December and showing off their silliest side, all to raise money for Save the Children.

Once again, the Self-Build Zone and Build-Zone team will be partaking in the Christmas Jumper day on the 16th of December. All money raised from participants will be donated to Save the Children, as well as money raised from a team bake sale on the day.

Watch this space, for some silly and festive updates!

Build-Zone Issue warning about Unrated Insurers

On the eve of MIPIM UK Build-Zone, one of leading providers of Structural Warranties, issues a stark warning about using Unrated Insurers.

Their latest Brochure is being launched at MIPIM UK tomorrow and highlights the issues that face the Insurance market – on which the Construction Industry and Lenders rely upon to protect themselves, third parties and Clients.

Yet again another Insurer, GABLE, has gone into administration which demonstrates that it is even more important when taking out a 10 year policy in particular that you only accept an Insurer that has achieved at least an ‘A’ rating from one of the recognised Rating Agencies – such as AM Best, Standard and Poor’s or Fitch.

The CML also needs to be more proactive in this respect – by recommending to their Members that they should only accept ‘A’-rated Insurers bearing in mind most of them insist that Borrowers have a Structural Warranty in the first place.

Unrated Insurers should not be accepted – just ask the SRA (Solicitors Regulation Authority) who got caught not once but twice.

Remember Quinn’s, Lemmar, Balvar, Setanta, ERIC, Millburn, Enterprise?

………. and now GABLE.

It is not all about Price!

Come and see us at MIPIM UK from the 19th till the 21st of October on stand G11/13.
