Vinden (Vinden), a leading North West property consultancy, has launched Vindemnity a unique insurance product for the construction industry following the appointment of Steve Padley.
Formerly of Zurich and with 20 years experience of developing insurance products and solutions for the likes of AXA and Capita, Padley has joined Vinden to head up Vinden’s insurance division.
Vinden’s insurance team provides clients with a comprehensive range of bespoke insurance and risk management solutions to meet the needs of local, national and international organisations.
Created with protection in mind, Vindemnity is the first product of its kind comprising a full Project Management, QS and sustainability offering combined with energy performance certification, buildings insurance and comprehensive assignable building warranties for both domestic and commercial buildings. It is a 360 degree project management and insurance solution which dovetails professional services with insurance for the entire duration of the build cycle and for many years following completion.
Peter Vinden, managing director of Vinden, said: “Our insurance services division places technical proficiency, product development and innovation firmly at the top of its agenda. In these challenging economic times Vindemnity offers clients a complete service proposition, cost savings and guaranteed products which is what we believe the market place demands. We are delighted to have Steve on board to strengthen our team and look forward to the benefit of his knowledge and experience as we continue to expand our range of products, services and solutions to satisfy the evolving needs of the construction industry.”
Padley added: “Vinden has already made great advances in the construction industry by constantly challenging industry practices. Vinden’s experience in the construction arena is well known and I am thrilled to be joining such a successful and growing business that clearly is a market leader in technical innovation, and product development, not words that are normally associated with the construction industry. Vindemnity is just one of a number of exciting products currently being developed within Vinden.”
