Arranging construction insurance is not a do-it-yourself activity and, if dealt with
improperly, claims could be rejected. The insurance must be carefully considered to include and list all identified risks including the location of the works, the type
of structure, the method of construction and where existing structures or other site conditions may be at risk. Sasria cover is known as Supplementary
Insurance and is not available to the public. It needs to be arranged by an experienced broker like us who takes the time to understand the insurance needs of each specific project.
