Mass Timber Buildings Insurance MTRC & ASBP

MTRC. Mass Timber Risk Consulting.

“MTRC was founded in 2022 as a direct response to the frustrations our clients were experiencing around the insurability and lack of knowledge regards the use of Mass Timber in our built environment.

Philip Callow, the founder of MTRC, has 19 years of experience as a Construction Insurance Broker and Underwriter. Having worked for Marsh, Aon and WTW, across the London, Singapore and Hong Kong markets, he has expert knowledge around the strategy required to secure an equitable outcome when arranging project insurances.

Prior to founding MTRC, Philip spent the last 2.5 years as an underwriter for Chase Global UK, specifically researching and developing the UK’s first Mass Timber Construction Insurance Facility”
