Contract Works

Before commencing any residential, commercial or civic building works, it is imperative to ensure you have a contract works insurance policy in place.

A Contract Works policy is designed to assist registered builders, contractors and owner builders to meet their contractual obligations to insure a building project. It provides for accidental loss or damage during the construction period for loss resulting from things such as fire, flood, malicious damage and theft. 

The Contract Works policy can be extended to include cover for:

  • Existing buildings which do not part of the contract works
  • Constructional plant
  • Materials in transit/storage
  • Employees tools
  • Public Liability

This policy is designed to provide insurance cover as required under a construction contract.
