Construction & Contracting Insurance


The construction industry is built from companies and individuals with varying specialisms and even the locations of where projects are undertaken. There's no need for you to pay for the cover that's not relevant to your business and our experienced team of commercial advisers will help craft a policy specifically for your needs.

Why is Construction Insurance Important?

Construction insurance provides cover in the event of damage to a building or its structure and can include cover for tools, equipment and accidents. Builders insurance is essential for construction companies or individual builders to protect against various risk factors and liabilities. Without construction insurance or public liability insurance for contractors, you could risk losing a large sum of money due to injury, property damage or liability claims.

What is Public Liability Insurance for Contractors?

The most common type of insurance we are asked for by those working in the construction trade is public liability insurance. This is a construction insurance solution that we can provide you, however, there is so much more you might also want to consider:

  • Cover for your tools, machinery and plant
  • Business Interruption Insurance
  • Commercial Vehicle Fleet
  • Employers' liability insurance - we speak to companies in the trade who are adamant they don't have employees so don't need the cover, but they are often wrong and therefore breaking the law.
  • Buildings & Contents Insurance
  • Directors & Officers Liability 
  • Professional Indemnity Insurance
  • Contract Works 

Whether you are running a company fulfilling large scale engineering contracts, building new homes or working on smaller scale renovation projects, our team will help tailor cover so you can get a construction insurance policy that suit your needs.
