oa Civil Engineering = Siviele Ingenieurswese - Insurance can go seriously wrong
In the case of a construction project that involves more than one contractor, the quality of insurance for contracts works can be seriously undermined by insuring each facet of the contract separately, says M.I.B. Risk Managers. M.I.B.'s John Politt says there can be gaps in insurance arrangements if one allows each contractor to insure each facet of a contract - such as earthworks, buildings, mechanical works and so on - separately, as each contractor would negotiate his own cover to protect his own risk, leading inevitably to a built-in additional cost to the owner/developer.
