Commercial Insurance

We Know Construction Insurance

Lycetts insures the risks associated with a range of property development with our construction insurance policies. This includes new build projects and alterations to existing structures.

Wherever possible, we recommend that a client’s construction contract is structured so that the client is responsible for arranging insurance protection. This is usually referred to as ’employer’, ‘owner’ or ‘principal’ controlled insurance. Under an employer-controlled programme, the employer organises insurance for construction in the joint names of him or herself, the financier, the contractor and sub-contractors working on the project.

 

Tender documents will exclude a requirement for insurance and identify the extent of the employer provided policies, as well as contractors’ continuing responsibilities.

 

A range of cover is available. Typically we will insure: all risks of loss or damage to works including an element of damage caused by defective design; all risks of loss or damage to unfixed materials; public and products liability; loss of income due to delays; non-negligent damage to adjoining and surrounding properties; and cover for latent defects in structural elements of the building.

How to claim construction insurance.

It is a condition of all insurance policies that incidents that may result in claims are reported to insurers without delay. If such incidents are not reported within an acceptable timescale (usually 30 days from the time of the incident) your insurers may refuse to indemnify you.

 

In the event of a claim in relation to a commercial business policy, you should contact your Lycetts account executive/handler as soon as possible. When completing claim forms, ensure the whole form is completed as far as possible and it is signed on your behalf or your company’s behalf by an authorised person.
