Contractors/Erection all risk insurance
CAR/EAR (Contractors All Risks / Erection All Risks) is an insurance contract type directed to investors as well as to enterprises dealing with construction and erection works. The insurance cover includes any sudden, accidental and unforeseen fortuitous events (All Risks) providing that they have not been clearly excluded in general insurance conditions.
The purpose of the insurance is to provide all the parties involved in the construction or erection process with the financial means that will make it possible to restore property damaged resulting from a fortuitous event as well to cover third party claims raised in relation to the construction process executed.
The insurance contract consists of two parts:
Section I lists material damages to the construction or erection object (costs of materials, equipment, machines, installations, as well as labor) as well as to temporary facilities and light construction equipment.
Section II lists damages incurred by third parties in connection with the construction and erection works conducted.
The scope of the insurance can be additionally extended with the following items, among others:

- Insurance of property during its transport to the construction site,
- Insurance of additional overtime labor costs.
Additionally, the contract can be extended to include the ALOP – Advance Loss of Profits insurance. The insurance cover includes the investor’s loss of profit resulting from delay in the execution of construction and erection works. The delay can result from damage covered under the CAR/EAR insurance.
