The CAR policy is designed for construction related projects including but not limited to :

  • Commercial/residential buildings.
  • Industrial buildings, factories and plants.
  • Warehouses.
  • Water supply and drainage systems.
  • Road, railway facilities and airports.

The basic concept is to offer comprehensive and adequate protection against loss or damage in respect of the contract works, construction plant and equipment and/or construction machinery, as well as against third party claims in respect of property damage and/or bodily injury arising in connection with the execution of a construction project.

This cover is offered to contractors and principals and their subcontractors engaged in construction activities.

The policy comprises of 2 Sections:

Section I - Material Damage

Covers physical loss, damage or destruction of the property insured by any cause, other than those specifically excluded in the policy.

Section II - Third Party Liability

Covers the legal liability of the insured as a result of bodily injury to third party or property damage belonging to a third party arising out of performance of the contract works and happening on or in the immediate vicinity of the site, subject to standard exclusions specified in the policy wording.

Erection All Risks (EAR) Insurance:

The scope of cover is like the Contractor's All Risks Insurance but specifically designed for erection/installation projects, where the values of the plant/equipment to be erected dominate the civil works in the total contract value.

This cover is offered to Contractors and Principals and their subcontractors engaged in erection activities.

The Policy comprises of 2 Sections:

Section I - Material Damage

Covers physical loss, damage or destruction of the property insured by any cause, other than those specifically excluded in the policy.

CPM policy covers on an annual basis various types of mobile equipment like earthmovers, excavators, cranes, shovels, and forklifts whilst at work, at rest or during maintenance operations at construction sites only.

The policy covers sudden, accidental, external damage to the insured machinery due to any cause other than those specifically excluded in the policy.

Machinery Breakdown Insurance (MBD):

This policy covers loss or damage to fixed and/or non-mobile plant and machinery due to any unforeseen and sudden physical loss or damage to machinery insured resulting from causes such as defects in casting and material, faulty design, faults at workshop or in erection, bad workmanship, lack of skill, carelessness, shortage of water in boilers, physical explosion, tearing apart on account of centrifugal force, short circuit, or from other causes not specifically excluded.

This policy would not cover those losses which otherwise insurable under a Fire and Perils or Property All Risks policies.

It is a condition that sum insured should represent the new replacement values and that there shall be a satisfactory maintenance program throughout the period of Insurance.

Machinery loss of Profits (MLOP)

Machinery Loss of Profits insurance provides cover for the actual loss of gross profits (i.e. net profit and standing charges) and/or increased cost of working sustained as a result of a business interruption caused by an accident indemnifiable under Machinery Insurance.
