JCT Clause 6.5.1

Under the JCT Standard Form of Building Contract, there are various requirements for insurance and indemnity on the part of either the Employer or the Contractor.

JCT Clause 6.5.1 requires insurance to be arranged in respect of any expense, liability, loss, claim or proceedings which the Employer may incur or sustain to any property (arising out of the contract works) caused by:

  • Collapse
  • Subsidence
  • Heave
  • Vibration
  • Weakening or removal of support
  • Lowering of groundwater

Cover can be arranged on a standalone basis or as part of a specific project alongside the contract works and liability requirements.
