PL insurance and new building control measures

The Department of the Environment recently announced strict new building control measures in an effort to rebuild consumer confidence in the industry. The new regulations aim to prevent poor construction, pyrite damage and breach of fire regulations. From now on, any new build projects will be assigned certifiers that will inspect the building at key stages of construction and sign off the building upon completion.

For a builder, public liability insurance is very important due to the nature of the work and the proximity to the public. A good public liability insurance policy will cover you against claims for damages from injury to members of the public and also if you cause damage to property outside of your premises.
