Other Specialised Services

The UK Standard Industrial Classification of Economic Activities (SIC) classifies businesses by the type of economic activity they engage in. The latest version, SIC 2007, came into force on 1 January 2008. ‘Other specialised services’ for the construction industry are classified as single activities which take place during the construction of many buildings and structures, but do not fall into other categories. These activities require specialised skills or equipment. The subclass of specialised construction activities (other than scaffolding erection) are listed in Section F 43999, which includes: • construction of foundations, including pile driving • damp proofing and water proofing works • de-humidification of buildings • shaft sinking • erection of steel elements • steel bending • bricklaying and stone setting • erection of chimneys and industrial ovens • work with specialist access requirements necessitating climbing skills and the use of related equipment, e.g. working at height on tall structures • subsurface work • construction of outdoor swimming pools • steam cleaning, sand blasting and similar activities for building exteriors • renting of cranes and other building equipment, which cannot be allocated to a specific construction type, with operator.
