We have obtained industry-leading expertise in the field of construction risk management. Albert Risk Management Consultants acquired the assets of Bickmore Risk Consulting in 2019, who had acquired Ron Rakich & Associates in 2012. The team members include nationally recognized leaders in construction risk management. Combined with our already extensive experience, we now have unsurpassed capabilities in aiding clients with construction risk management issues.


Through our vast experience and expertise, we bring extensive knowledge of construction risk management theory and concepts. We evaluate the feasibility of owner-controlled insurance programs (OCIPs), and if this is our client's selected path, we help ensure they succeed. Our project auditing services can also help clients review their risk management endeavors and quantify the results. Similarly, our contractual risk transfer services are of great value to law firms, project owners, and construction firms.
