Construction Insurance can provide you with protection from risks that may be outside of your control. For example, it can provide you with protection from applicable property damage claims; or if a third party is injured on your premises during construction; it can also provide extended protection for existing structures.

This is for any Melbourne-based contractor or builder that is responsible for carrying out works on-site. They should consider a Construction Insurance policy that provides Contractors All Risk coverage.
