Construction works insurance and general liability is often a requirement under building contracts. Many creditors and financial institutions with interests in construction projects require a builder to hold contract works insurance. This is to protect their interests against unexpected loss on the building site.

Although it is often contractually required, this type of insurance is a good risk management tool to protect cash flow should an unfortunate incident arise.
What’s included in the cover?

Section one – Material Damage

Covers loss, destruction of or damage to contract works and all materials related to a construction or maintenance contract whilst in transit or on or adjacent to “the insured site”.

Section two – General Liability

Covers legal liabilities for injury to any person(s) and/or damage to any property of third parties arising out of the construction/maintenance works.
Builders may consider variations in excess and general liability limits to cater to their construction contractual requirements or partially self-insure to minimize insurance costs eg – higher excess costs may reduce the overall cost of insurance.
