Foundations data

Foundations data is used to determine the cost of earthworks and may include, for example, soil tests and contour surveys.

As a licensed contractor, you must obtain the foundations data and incorporate any costs into the contract before it is signed by the property owner.

An exemption is granted if you, as the contractor, are not legally entitled to enter the building site to obtain the data before the contract is signed and the contract guarantees there will be no price increase when the data is obtained at a later date.
