The GST is to be paid at fixed rate on Cess which is calculated @1% of the cost of construction invoiced to the employer. This cost of construction, may be for Mechanical, Civil and Electrical work done by the contractor.
The contractor has to pay for the cost of cess @1% on work order value as per which the registration obtained. You ask the employer to issue the work order for the civil work, if the work not included in work order.

Pl see the definition of Construction work.

As per Section 2(d) of the BOCW Act, "building or other construction work" includes "the construction, alteration, repairs, maintenance or demolition- of or, in relation to, buildings, streets, roads, railways, tramways, airfields, irrigation, drainage, embankment and navigation works, flood control works (including channels for distribution of water), oil and gas installations, electric lines, wireless, radio; television, telephone, telegraph and overseas communication dams, canals, reservoirs, watercourses, tunnels, bridges, viaducts, aquaducts, pipelines, towers, cooling towers, transmission towers and such other work as may be specified in this behalf by the appropriate Government, by notification but does not include any building or other construction work to which the provisions of the Factories Act, 1948 (63 of 1948), or the Mines Act, 1952 (35 of 1952), apply;

See the nature of your work and evaluate whether the specific items mentioned above fits your activity.
