Contractors All Risk

Within the construction industry, material damage insurance for building or machinery erection projects is normally arranged as “Contractors All Risks” or “Erection All Risks”. The policy protects the interests of the Principals, Contractors, Sub-Contractors and all other parties working on site.

Cover can be arranged individually for larger projects, or under an ‘Annual Floater’ policy to cover all works in progress during a 12 month period. Such cover includes physical loss or damage to the Contract Works & Temporary Works. It may also encompass other items such as:
 Contractors plant
 Equipment
 Temporary buildings
 Free issue materials

In addition, cover can be arranged to include such items as Third Party Liability, damage to surrounding property of the Principals arising from the construction works, transit, offsite storage, etc.

Advanced Loss of Profits Insurance

For commercial projects, special consideration must also be given to protecting the Principals and/or Financiers against future loss of profit or standing charges, arising from a delay in completion of the project as a result of material damage under the Contractors All Risks Policy. These are known as “Advanced Loss of Profits” or “Delay Start Up” policies. They are normally placed in conjunction with the material damage cover.
