Overview

Division E: Construction, includes all units mainly engaged in constructing buildings (including the on-site assembly and erection of prefabricated buildings), roads, railroads, aerodromes, irrigation projects, harbour or river works, water, gas, sewerage or stormwater drains or mains, electricity or other transmission lines or towers, pipelines, oil refineries or other specified civil engineering projects. In general, units mainly engaged in the repair of buildings or of other structures are also included in this Division, as are those engaged in the alteration or renovation of buildings, preparation of mine sites, demolition or excavation. Units mainly engaged in providing architectural supervision or consultant engineering services are not included though they may be involved in supervising construction work; such units are included in Division L Property and Business Services. Units of the defence forces engaged in construction activities are not included in this Division; the defence forces are included in Division M Government Administration and Defence.

Units mainly engaged in certain specified installation activities such as the installation of heating and air conditioning equipment, the on-site assembly of boilers, the installation of fire alarm systems, the installation of blinds and awnings, the installation of petrol bowsers or the installation of electrical wiring are included in this Division. Units mainly engaged in providing special building or construction trade services such as structural steel erection, carpentry, bricklaying, concreting, plumbing, painting, plastering, floor and wall tiling or roof tiling and the installation or laying of floor coverings such as carpets or linoleum, are included in this Division. However, not all units mainly engaged in installing goods are included in this Division, e.g. units mainly engaged in installing household appliances (not requiring electrical or plumbing work in order to be installed) are included in Subdivision 52 in Division G Retail Trade, while units mainly engaged in installing lifts, escalators, factory assembled boilers or "built-in" furniture are included in Division C Manufacturing.
