Construction owners often require their contractors to name the owner as an additional insured on the contractor’s insurance policy.  But what happens when the owner requires the contractor to name the owner’s construction manager as an additional insured as well?  A recent decision from the Court of Appeals of New York held that the contractor’s insurance policy did not provide additional insured coverage for the owner’s construction manager.  See Gilbane Bldg. Co./TDX Constr. Corp. v. St. Paul Fire & Marine Ins. Co., 31 N.Y.3d 131 (2018).
