That's A Wrap-Up! The Keys to OCIP & CCIP Insurance

 

Wrap-ups are a popular way to reduce overall construction costs while providing quality coverage and protection; but participants must know what’s included and what’s not.

Simply put, a wrap-up changes the way liability and workers compensation insurance is procured for large construction projects, but there’s much more you need to know before you agree to participate.
