Today, the State of Nevada Contractors Board (Board) issued a Notice of Intent to Act Upon a Regulation, confirming that it will conduct a public workshop on Monday, December 1. 2014 at 9:00 a.m. PST and a public hearing on Wednesday, December 10, 2014 at 9:00 a.m. PST on the proposed amendments to Nevada Administrative Code § 624.170. The proposed amendments add a sub-classification to the B-General Building classification to allow remodeling and improvement of interior spaces, including structures which exceed more than three stories in height and buildings with fewer than three stories that are connected to structures which exceed three stories.

As currently drafted, Section 624.170 would be amended to add:

Commercial Remodeling (subclassification B-6): The remodeling and improvement of interior spaces in structures which support, shelter or enclose persons or animals or other chattels, including structures which exceed more than three stories in height and buildings with fewer than three stories that are connected to structures which exceed three stories. The provisions of this section do not authorize the holder of a classification B-6 license to perform modification of existing structural members or the installation of new structural members.

Anyone that wants to comment upon the Board's proposed action may appear at the workshop or may address their comments, data, views or arguments, in written form to the Executive Officer of the Nevada State Contractors Board, 2310 Corporate Circle, Suite 200, Henderson, Nevada 89074 and the Reno office located at 9670 Gateway Drive, Suite 100, Reno, Nevada, 89521. Written submissions must be received by the Board 5 days prior to the workshop. If no person who is directly affected by the proposed action appears to request time to make an oral presentation, the Board may proceed immediately to act upon any written submissions.
