J D Hoyland Builders Limited (JDH)  holds a current Public Liability policy for $2,000,000 Limit of indemnity through the CPF Facility (NZI, Vero, Allianz).   An insurance certificate can be provided upon request.  JDH does not hold a contract works insurance cover for contracts that involve renovations or any contract works to existing structures – both commercial and residential.  If the contract relates to a renovation or  work on/to an existing structure it is the responsibility of the property owner to contact their insurer to arrange the appropriate contract works insurance –  JDH reverses the right to request confirmation of this to ensure cover is in place prior to a contract beginning.
