Constructional works cover offers protection against the following causes of loss

  • risk of fair or unfair calling of a contract bond due to political reasons or, in absence of political reasons, risk of unenforceability of the claim to reimbursement of the guaranteed amount
  • unacceptability of performing the constructional works contract due to the occurrence of political risks (e.g. war) or commercial risks abroad (e.g. insolvency of the buyer), in view of the costs accruing in connection with the setting up of the construction site as well as the storage of construction site equipment and material
