The indispensable insurance for all your construction work

CONSTRUCTA offers both insurance cover for property damage resulting from construction accidents and principal's liability insurance for customers, either as private individuals or in a professional capacity.

 

Construction insurance offers the following cover options:

 

Contractors' all-risk insurance:

  • damage to or destruction of the construction or the building site equipment caused by unforeseeable and sudden construction accidents.
  • Damage that is caused by theft and is directly associated with the building work.

 

Principal's liability insurance:

  • cover for personal injury or property damage incurred by third parties.

 

Insurance cover is also available for:

  • existing constructions and moveable property located in them;
  • the building plot and the surrounding buildings, including plants;
  • scaffolding and formwork materials and temporary structures, construction offices, fencing, advertising signs, etc.

 

Construction risks are unpredictable and difficult to estimate. CONSTRUCTA from Generali offers you ideal insurance cover and security across the board while your construction work is in progress.

 

How does construction insurance work? A specific example:

Mr Smith is renovating his house and at the same time adding a new, larger balcony.

During construction of the balcony, part of the existing façade breaks off and falls into the foundation pit. On checking the plans, it is found that the architect's calculations were correct and that safety rules were followed.

In addition, Mr Smith's neighbour discovers that cracks have developed in his walls since the construction work started and demands that they be repaired.

But there's no need to worry. Not only will we assume the costs of rebuilding the balcony, but also,

 

 as part of the combined supplementary insurance,

  • the costs of fully repairing the façade (existing structure), which is not part of the original construction work;
  • the costs of repairing or replacing the movable property in the building that was damaged or destroyed as a result of the façade collapse;
  • the costs of repairing or replacing the construction equipment and tools that were damaged or destroyed by the façade collapse.

 

as part of the principal's liability insurance:

  • the costs of a review of the neighbour's claim by an expert;
  • the losses incurred by third parties, provided they are in fact incurred as a result of the construction;
  • Mr Smith's defence in the event of a dispute against unjustified claims by the neighbour, if the damage was not caused by the construction work.
