About This License

General Building Contractor means a person licensed under this chapter (Utah Construction Trades Licensing Act 58-55-2) as a general building contractor qualified by education, training, experience, and knowledge to perform or superintend the construction of structures for the support, shelter, and enclosure of persons, animals, chattels, or movable property of any kind. However, a general building contractor may not engage in the performance of a construction speciality specifically identified by rule, in which there is represented a substantial risk to the public health, safety, and welfare, and for which a license is required unless that general building contractor holds a valid license in that speciality classification. A general building contractor, when performing work defined under the classification “residential and small commercial contractors,” is under the restrictions defined under that classification.
