Fully Insured for Peace of Mind

Not only is our clients safety vitally important whilst we perform our duties on site, but also the safety of existing structures and surrounding property. We provide each project with Contractors All Risk (CAR) Insurance. This is a comprehensive policy designed to protect construction projects and contractors against a wide range of risks and potential financial losses during the construction or installation process. When building and installing retaining walls, CAR Insurance provides coverage not only for the project itself but also extends to include protection for surrounding properties that could be impacted by the construction activities.

Coverage Highlights

Construction Risks: CAR Insurance covers various risks related to construction activities, including damage to the retaining wall itself due to accidental causes like fire, theft, vandalism, or structural collapse during construction.

Third-Party Liability: One of the key aspects of CAR Insurance is the coverage it provides for third-party liability. This includes protection against legal claims and expenses arising from bodily injury or property damage to third parties, including neighboring properties affected by the construction.

Surrounding Property Protection: In the context of retaining wall installation, CAR Insurance can be tailored to extend coverage to neighboring properties that might be at risk of damage due to the construction activities. This could include damage caused by vibrations, soil displacement, or debris falling onto adjacent properties.

Additional Structures: CAR Insurance can also cover additional structures or property components within the construction project, such as equipment, machinery, tools, and temporary structures used during the installation of the retaining wall.

Site Risks: CAR Insurance considers risks inherent to the construction site, such as weather-related damages, natural disasters, and other unforeseen events that could affect the progress of the project and potentially impact neighboring properties.

Professional Consultation: In case design flaws or engineering errors result in damage to the retaining wall or surrounding properties, CAR Insurance can provide coverage for legal fees and settlements related to professional indemnity claims.

Benefits of Complete Cover

Comprehensive Protection: CAR Insurance provides comprehensive coverage that addresses a wide range of potential risks and liabilities, offering peace of mind to contractors, property owners, and other stakeholders involved in the project.

Mitigating Financial Losses: In the event of unexpected damage, the insurance coverage helps mitigate financial losses that could arise from repairs, legal claims, and property restoration.

Legal Compliance: Some construction contracts and agreements may require contractors to have CAR Insurance in place, ensuring compliance with industry standards and contractual obligations.

Smooth Project Execution: With coverage for potential liabilities and damages, contractors can focus on project execution without undue concerns about unforeseen setbacks.
