Carpentry means cutting and placing timber (or timber composites) in on site construction work to put up framing or fix components or assemblies used in construction work, such as stairs, windows, doors, walls, and floors. It includes putting up metal framing and constructing formwork to prepare for concreting.
Carpentry work includes:
- minor non-structural concreting for a dwelling where that concreting is needed to support carpentry work
- concreting for footings/structural support
- Outdoor construction such as for pergolas, timber decks, timber and metal fencing.
- exterior wall cladding (including non-structural stone veneer facing or cladding, but excluding brick)
- curtain walling
- internal timber cladding of walls and ceilings and non-structural stone cladding of internal walls
- non-habitable outdoor shelters or structures (excluding brick or stone) such as pergolas, gazebos and the like, but not including garages, sheds or carports
- prefabricated glass fences
- timber retaining walls
