How to prepare an As-Constructed Package

In order to apply for a Connection Certificate, please download and complete an As-Constructed Package Certification Form which contains a checklist of all necessary requirements.

Once you have gathered all of the mandatory documents, please upload each item in a complete and well identified package to the Developer Applications Portal, before advising us by email to development.compliance@urbanutilities.com.au  that the entire package is ready for processing. 

Avoid unneccessary delays by ensuring your as-constructed packages contain the correct details, dates and all necessary documents. Missing information cause extra administration that delays the connection certificate process.

For more information contact 07 3855 6896 or email development.compliance@urbanutilities.com.au.

 Ensure your submission is compliant

In addition to the consolidated SEQ Code Design and Construction Standards, we have also established a consistent standard for submission of As-Constructed packages. Requirements include:

  • revised drawing standards (including Urban Utilities title block, below); and
  • lodgement of a compliant ADAC XML file derived from the As-Constructed survey.

All As-Constructed packages must conform with the SEQ Code’s Asset Information Specification, which includes submission of an ADAC-compliant XML file.

A complete and well prepared As-Constructed Package will help when it comes to the timely issue of your Connection Certificate.

  • testing reports and receipts are appropriately sized and copied for easy reading
