What’s it about?

The aim of this webinar is to offer an overview of the requirement of the contractor and employer to provide insurance, as stated in the JCT Design and Build Contract.

You will learn

By the end of this webinar you will be able to:

  1. Outline the general provisions for the insurance under JCT D&B16
  2. Identify the differences between damage to property or persons caused by negligence of the contractor and incidents not caused by negligence of the contractor
  3. Define how the works are insured and process for address if the works are damaged, and
  4. Out the other insurance provisions in respect of terrorism cover, professional indemnity, Joint Fire Code and other insurances.

How should an Employer deal with a situation where they are requiring works to be carried out on properties that do not belong to them and intend for the Contractor to insure the existing buildings? (For example works being carried out on multiple private residences but paid for by the Employer)

The Insurance would be taken out by the Contractor under Option B and the cost of that added to the Contract Sum. The Contractor would notify its Insurers of the situation in the sense that they would need to know there were multiple occupiers; say tenants, and the tenants would need to make sure the contents of their apartments were insured. It would be prudent for the tenants to notify their insurers of the existence of the works.
