Contract Works Insurance

Contract Works Insurance

This type of insurance, in its simplest form, covers all work being carried out on a site. This policy offers protection from various unforeseen mishaps, including fire, flood, storm, vandalism, and theft.

What does contract works cover?

The property covered by a contract works insurance policy includes:

  • The work in progress
  • The building materials used in the project
  • Your plant, machinery, tools and equipment
  • Any temporary buildings
  • Any hired-in property
Why do I need contract works insurance?

Contract works cover covers the actual work that has been done prior to it being completed. For example, if the property burnt down through no fault of the builder or contractors, a contract works policy would pay for the work that had been done to be reinstated, including all materials required to reinstate.

Who is Contract Works cover for?

This type of insurance is applicable for anybody in the construction industry that is involved in new work and wishes to insure the work in progress as well as the materials and fittings. This includes but is not limited to general builders, building contractors, property developers, and electricians. It also includes cover for carpenters and joiners, as well as floor and wall tilers.

When does the insurance finish for the works? 

A Contract Works cover often includes a ‘maintenance period’ clause. This will protect a completed building whilst it is being sold by the contractor and can be as short as 30 days, or, ideally, much longer.
