Working with Shepherd

This was a difficult placement given the nature of the work and jurisdiction of the project. That said, we were able to get comfortable given the client’s qualification for Casualty Pro based on their Procore usage. We received the initial submission for the project and worked closely with the broker as the project timeline and placement details were finalized. We provided our indication within 1 business day and offered quick feedback regarding our capabilities. Through daily communication, we were able to quickly accommodate project changes as they arose and provide a final proposal that met the client’s needs.
