Council Cost Summary Reports

COUNCIL COST REPORTS


Once a project reaches a certain value (usually $500,000 but some councils have a higher minimum), most NSW councils require a "Registered Quantity Surveyor's Cost Report" be included as part of the Development Application (DA) or Construction Certificate (CC). Councils require this to ascertain the value of the project so the fees and contributions (Section 94A) attributable can be calculated. 


This service includes:-

 

  • Reviewing the plans which are to be submitted as part of the DA or CC;
  • The preparation of an estimate generally in accordance with the Australian Cost Management Manuals from the Australian Institute of Quantity Surveyors;
  • Calculating the development costs in accordance with the definition of the Local Council
  • The inclusion of GST in the calculation;
  • Measurement of  Gross Floor Areas in accordance with the Method of Measurement of Building Areas in the AIQS Cost Management Manual Volume 1, Appendix A2.
  • Populating and signing the forms required by Council


As Australian Institute of Quantity Surveyors (AIQS) registered and certified Quantity Surveyors, we are able to prepare these reports in accordance with your council's format and requirements.
