Detailed Cost Reports
for NSW Council Contributions by a

Registered Quantity Surveyor

Minimise Authorities Fees

The very first step of every new building project is to gain development application (DA) approval from Council.


If the estimated cost of your development exceeds a limit specified by the Council (typically between $500,000 and $3,000,000), they will require a Registered Quantity Surveyor’s Detailed Cost Report to verify the construction cost.


The purpose of this is to enable the calculation of the authorities’ fees for Section 7.12 contributions (formerly Section 94 contributions), payable by developers following DA submission.


We, as registered Quantity Surveyors, prepare these Detailed Cost Reports, and have a unique understanding of the developers’ needs for affordability.
