Practical Completion

Practical Completion is that stage in the execution of the work under a Contract when—

  • the Works are complete except for minor omissions and minor defects —
    • which do not prevent the Works from being reasonably capable of being used for their intended purpose; and
    • which the Superintendent determines the Contractor has reasonable grounds for not promptly rectifying; and
    • rectification of which will not prejudice the convenient use of the Works; and
  • those tests which are required by the Contract to be carried out and passed before the Works reach Practical Completion have been carried out and passed; and
  • documents and other information required under the Contract which, in the opinion of the Superintendent, are essential for the use, operation and maintenance of the Works have been supplied.
