The first choice for all contractor bonds

With extensive experience supplying contractor bonds ICW are specialists in dealing with the concerns of all manner of construction contractors. With bespoke policies to address these concerns, we have built relationships with our clients based on understanding, trust and professionalism.

With our years in the market we know that, as a contractor, the reassurance that you have the money guaranteed for your completed works is fundamental to the success of your business.


Providing financial assurance to major international institutions and authorities

When developing a construction project it is an integral part of the contract with the local authorities or larger corporations to have a security bond in place. With our years of experience in the market, we have provided our warranty advice and assurance to contractors, banks, developers and businesses alike, providing vital surety to the industry that is needed for the success of a project.

Contractor bonds provide a much more convenient and efficient method to mitigate financial risk than any bank guarantees. Depending on the type of cover required ICW will tailor a policy to suit your specific needs as a contractor.


  • Provides financial assurance to operate your business
  • Tailored policies to suit your business needs
  • Over 40 years of experience in contractor bond provision

  • “Lotus Homes are an award winning Residential Developer based in Banbridge. We are currently developing residential housing sites in Banbridge, Newry, Lurgan and Warrenpoint and will be shortly commencing developments in Antrim and Belfast. Lotus Homes have been using ICW as a provider of Structural Warranties and Development Bonds for all of our sites for over 12 months. We have at all times found ICW staff to be very professional, helpful and easy to work with.
    ICW are based in Belfast and have a dedicated inspector who carries out stage inspections on all our sites. Their systems for issuing final certificates are very straight forward. I have no hesitation in recommending ICW as a provider of Structural Warranties and confirm that Lotus Homes will continue to use them on any new developments we commence”.
