Classification 0516.

0516-00 Building repair, remodeling and carpentry
This subcode applies to a firm that chooses to report all construction phases in one classification. This is to simplify recordkeeping.
Applies to contractors engaged in building repair, remodeling and carpentry work.
This classification applies to:
• Remodeling and carpentry-related framing work on concrete, brick and steel buildings.
• Wood framed building renovation and remodeling projects when the skeleton framework is not being modified or altered.
Typical projects include, but are not limited to:
• Interior building demolition ("strip outs") involving only the removal of interior walls, partitions, interior trim, cabinetry, doors, flooring and related construction materials;
• Converting a room from one use to another, such as a bedroom to a study, or a garage to a family room;
• Enlarging or reconfiguring a room by removing or adding an interior wall;
• Upgrading a kitchen or bathroom;
• Repairing or installing all types of siding on an existing structure;
• Adding structures such as a wooden deck to an existing building, screening a porch, installing a wood patio cover, or assembling sheet metal tool or garden sheds.
Contractors subject to this classification use a variety of dimensional lumber and wood products, light weight metal studs and plastic and fiber reinforced boards, metal fasteners (nails, screws and bolts), and metal reinforcing or support straps such as joist hangers and post brackets.
This classification includes:
• Framing of wood structures with light weight metal studs.
• Installation of earthquake tie downs on residential buildings.
• Specialty service providers or contractors engaged in providing general repair services or performing remodeling projects on buildings and structures.
Contractors who alter, remodel or repair existing structures and have opted to report their construction activities under this single subclassification 0516-00 are not to be assigned any other construction classification with the exception of roof work or roofing which is to be reported separately in classification 0507-05.
Special note: Businesses assigned to this classification are distinguishable from those assigned to classification 0516-02, in that 0516-02 requires each phase of construction to be reported separately in the appropriate construction classification(s).
Contractors that build new wood structural additions as part of a remodeling contract must also report each phase separately. They must use classification 0510-00 to report the new framing. All other phases of the construction must be reported separately in the appropriate classification(s) as noted in the text of classification 0516-02.
Contractors that build new structural additions and also repair and remodel existing structures will be assigned both 0510-00 and 0516-02 in addition to any other appropriate classification. 0516-00 will not be assigned to these employers.
Subclassifications 0516-00 and 0516-02 cannot be active on an account at the same time.
0516-01 Wood playground equipment: Installation and/or repair
Applies to contractors engaged in the installation and/or repair of wood playground equipment. Work contemplated by this classification begins after the area of land has been excavated and/or cleared and includes installing wood playground equipment at private residences and in public settings such as, but not limited to, schools, parks, day care centers, churches, and hotels. This classification usually includes a variety of playground equipment comprised of treated wood beams, poles, posts, and a variety of dimensional lumber used in building swings, forts, stationary and swinging bridges, balance beams, climbing towers, slides, and rope and tire walks. Generally, the process involves setting poles or posts with use of a post hole digger, backhoe or tractor equipped with an auger. The poles or posts may be set in concrete. Depending on the piece of equipment being built, use of beams, planks, dimensional lumber, rope, chains, tires, and metal bars or rings, are securely attached with nails, screws, bolts or eye hooks. This classification includes the building of borders surrounding the playground equipment area with beams or railroad ties and the spreading of pea gravel, sand or wood chips underneath the equipment.
This classification excludes the installation of metal playground equipment which is to be reported separately in classification 0603, and the excavation or clearing of land which is to be reported separately in classification 0101.
