A construction project covers all the activities involved in the construction work. It includes all labor and materials, as well as project planning and preparation (such as carrying out surveys, clearing land, asbestos auditing, soil testing and preparing documentation). The value of a construction project will generally be the amount set out in the project contracts or other agreements. If there is more than one contract for the project, the amounts are added together to work out whether the project is valued at $350,000 or more. GST is included in the value of the project when it is included in the project contracts. In many cases there will be a number of contracts covering different activities that make up the construction project. It is not possible for an owner or a principal contractor to avoid their responsibilities through separate contracts with different builders and contractors relating to the same project. A client may, however, separate a large construction project involving the construction of several buildings or structures into discrete projects for each building or structure. In this case there must be a clear delineation of the work for which each principal contractor is responsible. Note that construction work includes demolition. A demolition project is valued in the same way as any other construction project.
