Building and Construction Insurance - designed just for you

At Stuart Insurances we have real experience of looking after the unique and varied insurance requirements of leading international property development and construction companies. We also look after the insurance needs of many indigenous Irish property developers.

We work with the building development company to identify their exact insurance requirements and then we research the insurance market to identify the most suitable insurance package based on their actual needs.

What type of construction companies do we cover?

We work with all types of Building and Construction Companies and Property Developers. We work with large construction companies who have requirements for cover for sites around the world and we also work with Irish based indigenous companies.

We can arrange OCIPs’ (Owner Controlled Insurance Programmes) as required by the project owner.

Tailored insurance to match your business needs

Our expert advisers will talk with you to assess your requirements for developers/ building & construction insurance and discuss the options that are most suitable to your individual needs, for example;

  1. Employers Liability insurance – You will need cover for own employees. But also, do you ever use sub-contractors? How do you know if their employees are adequately covered, as you may be held liable at law for accidents involving sub-contractor’s employees!

  2. Public Liability Insurance – you may need to look at some of the extensions to cover here. What if you have employees working on a client’s premises using heat and your employee accidentally sets fire to an attic space that spreads throughout the premises?

  3. Contractors All Risks Insurance – this is cover specifically designed to cover the plant and machinery used on the construction project. It can be owned by the developer but can also include hired in equipment for which the developer is responsible. It can be extended to cover such items as buildings in the course of construction.

  4. Professional indemnity – do you ever give advice on construction when engaged for a  building project, for example, advising a client of a slightly different gradient on the roof? Are you adequately insured if they claim afterwards that their roof leaks as a result of following wrong advice?

  5. OCIP Insurance; Owner Controlled Insurance Programme is insurance cover specially designed to protect the project owner and will cover liability (Public and Employers Liability) for all eligible contractors/ sub-contractors working on a specific construction project.

Please get in contact with us and we will talk with you to get an understanding of how you work. We will guide you through the process, explain the different options, and ensure based on our conversations, that you get the cover most appropriate to your own individual needs.
