Knowledge and experience in surety are more important today than ever before. At Berkley Surety, we take a comprehensive underwriting approach and seek to understand what makes your client’s business unique. Once we understand their business model, we determine the specific needs required to make it a successful enterprise. We break it down and look at performance, profitability, leverage and cash flow management. Looking at each company as an individual risk, we seek to identify the risk factors that are unique to their business.

Environmental Surety


The combination of standard surety underwriting and existing environmental expertise within Berkley Surety gives us a unique ability to provide surety bonds in the environmental realm. We are able to evaluate the particular exposures and risk mitigating techniques of your environmental contractors’ overall surety programs and individual bond requests.

Due to the increased risk in Design/Build contracts, we take a more cautious approach with contractors accepting this responsibility as part of an environmental project. While we anticipate our environmental construction clients will demonstrate a Net Worth in the range of $1 million, there are exceptions based on the type of environmental projects pursued and based on the portion of their backlog comprised of environmental work.
