Practical Completion

Practical Completion (PC) definition

/ˈpraktɪk(ə)l/ /kəmˈpliːʃn/

What does Practical Completion mean?

In most building contracts this is term given to the date at which the construction period of a project ends and the certifying officer certifies the works have been completed and are ready for handover to the client for it to occupy/use. Some minor defects, called snagging items, may remain and must be completed within a reasonable period—these must not affect the client's ability to use the works as intended.

Practical Completion explained

Practical completion also marks the start of the defects liability period. Practical completion is commonly referred to as 'PC'. It is also sometimes known as 'substantial completion'.
