Class code 5606 is used for employees who work in full time positions that have administrative or managerial responsibility for construction erection projects. Common positions included within this classification are people like project managers, construction executives, construction managers, and construction superintendents. Despite their job title or assigned position, employees under this class code cannot complete any actual construction work and are limited to supervision and overseeing of job foremans. Sole proprietors or owner/operators without employees, performing subcontracting work for the insured, would not be assigned to this classification because he/she would not have the required job supervisor or foreman.

Work under class code 5606 will usually be split between office duties and job site visits. Examples of work that may be done include things such as conferring with the job superintendent, keeping track of work progress, managing subcontractors and employees through the foreman, updating clients on the work completed, maintaining job records, and driving from site to site as required. A single employee cannot have their payroll divided or be included in any other classification under class code 5606.
