Without a specialist building works insurance policy in place it can be notoriously difficult to establish whether the contractor, homeowner or project manager’s insurance should respond to a claim.
Small scale building projects which are expected to cost less than £100,000 will usually be covered under a standard household policy but this is not the case with larger projects.
High-value refurbishment, renovation and extension projects are complex and most are managed under a Joint Contracts Tribunal (JCT) which determines in advance who will be held responsible for the design, delivery and insurance.
The best form of protection under a JCT is an insurance policy taken out in joint names to cover the building works – known as a building works insurance policy. These policies are an essential tool for Project Management.
