This survey is obligatory.

Outlays incurred for the construction of a building include all costs incurred from the moment of commencement to the moment of completion of the building. These outlays should include all cubature and extra-cubature costs associated with the execution of the building that can be defined at the moment of commissioning. In case of handing over dwellings in the building to be completed by future users, the costs incurred until the transfer of the building are shown. Building costs shall include: costs of acquiring the building plot (i.e., purchase price, perpetual usufruct fees incurred by the investor as well as notary and land mortgage registration fees, development costs of building plot and connection of external media – adiacenian costs, building erection costs – constructions, cost of technical equipment and building fittings, construction equipment associated with the building (equipment ensuring the ability to use the building in accordance with its designation, such as: connections and fittings including sewage collection and treatment, driveways, fencings, parking lots and places for rubbish cans) – for general usage, additional building costs e.g., investor costs, spatial planning, documentation, project advisory and expertise services, fees associated with the signing of notary deeds and entry into land registers, supervisions, construction management and settlement of works, financing costs, e.g., procurement of loans and repayment of interest.
