Construction Insurance

What is Construction work Insurance?

In the world of construction, every project comes with its own set of unique challenges and risks. Contract Works Insurance, also known as Construction Works Insurance, is designed to offer comprehensive protection for various aspects of construction projects, including both material damage and legal liability. Whether you are a builder, a tradesperson, or a subcontractor, this type of insurance can safeguard your investment from a multitude of potential risks, some of which may be beyond your control.

As well as providing cover for losses to the build project caused by insured events, Contract Works Insurance can include public and product liability coverage. This is essential as it protects builders and contractors from legal and compensation costs associated with accidental injury or damage caused to third parties during the construction process.

From the scale and scope of the project to the types of materials used and the various trades involved, we consider all aspects to ensure that our clients are comprehensively covered.

Why is Construction work Insurance Essential?

In the volatile and complex environment of a construction site, numerous unexpected events can occur, potentially leading to significant financial losses. Fires can ignite, storms can cause devastating damage, and theft or vandalism can result in costly delays and the loss of materials. In addition to these risks, builders, tradesmen, and subcontractors are also exposed to potential legal liabilities. A simple accident on the site could lead to costly lawsuits and damage to the company’s reputation.

At Statewide Insurance Solutions, we offer two Contract Works (Construction Works) Insurance packages that have been designed to provide builders with construction-specific cover at a competitive price. We understand the risks and challenges builders face every day, and we realise that no two businesses have the same needs.
