Unless the diagrams have different rules, that's not what the benchmark is here at all.

Site preparation or merely just digging the foundation doesn't count as contruction starting, since digging a hole is just that, digging a hole. And plus any construction taking place within a foundation that pertains only to the excavation doesn't count either, since that's not construction for the actual building itself.

  • Foundation work includes the implementation of permanent foundation components such as the drilling of caissons, etc.
  • Top down construction involving piling doesn't require a foundation to have been dug for a building to be considered under construction.

A tall building is considered to be ‘under construction’ when site clearing has been completed and foundation / piling work has begun.
