Demolition is one of the most high-risk and time-consuming aspects of a build. As you may be aware, not many insurers are willing to provide cover when you need to demolish a building or structure. The companies that do provide cover, stipulate strict conditions and restrictions. It takes an experienced broker to find you the right Demolition Insurance for your requirements. Which is where Construction Insure can help you.

Why do you need Demolition Cover?

You may be using an external contractor to demolish a Victorian chimney with expert precision. You may be demolishing a tower block with a controlled explosion. Or you may be reducing a single house to a pile of bricks. Whatever you’re demolishing, each project requires its own level of planning and preparation. And its own specific type of cover.

How can we help you get the right Demolition Cover?

Construction Insure are a specialist construction broker. Whether you’re contracting outside services or using your own expertise, we have the right contacts to help you get your demolition project - and your construction project - the right cover. We’ll get you cover to insure you for general demolition, soft strip, ball & chain and, of course, explosives. The size of your project isn’t an issue either. We can get you cover for up to all heights and depths, so, whether you’re bringing down a single wall or an entire street of houses, we can help you.


What about complications during your demolition?

You should also think about insuring your project for the unexpected. Such as discovering that the building you’re about to demolish contains asbestos. Not only would you need to be covered for asbestos removal - which we can combine with your Demolition Insurance - but you may also need to be insured for any penalties incurred by a delay to the job while the asbestos is safely removed. We can also provide you with Asbestos Insurance for site surveys.

Will you need Liability Insurance?

You may also need other provisions, depending on the scale of your project and whether you’re carrying our your own building demolition or using outside services. We can insure individual aspects of your project, with Professional Indemnity, Professional Liability or Public Liability Insurance. Public liability insurance starts at £2 million and goes up to £10 million. If your demolition is taking place in a residential area or close to the public, it’s definitely something you’ll need to consider.

Is Contractors All Risk cover the right answer?

The better choice for you could be our Contractors All Risk Insurance. This will cover you for all aspects of your entire project, from planning to completion and beyond. It will cover you for the contract length and the cost of the contract. It covers your employees, whether they’re your own staff, sub-contractors or manual staff. Your own plant and machinery equipment and hired plant and machinery equipment will also be covered. And the policy includes Public Liability up to £5 million and Employees Liability up to £10 million, as well as Professional Indemnity Insurance.
