Building work cost guide

An application for building approval must contain an estimate of the cost of work. This estimate must be determined in accordance with an instrument that has been signed by the Construction Occupations Registrar under Building (General) Regulation 2008.

This instrument, called the Building (General) (Cost of Building Work) Determination must be used to calculate building levy amounts for building applications. The instrument is updated annually and takes effect from 1 July each year.

The instrument can be found on the ACT Legislation Register: Building (General) (Cost of Building Work) Determination
