    I am not sure if this action above is considerate an alteration/ modification, or it falls under construction? What are the differences between alteration and construction? what are the actual definitions? What regulations applies?


    Answer

    FAR 2.101 defines construction as "construction, alteration, or repair (including dredging, excavation, and painting) of buildings, structures, or other real property." The definition is further described by stating that "buildings, structures, or other real property" includes, but are not limited to improvements of all types. So, the requirement to add a new wall inside a shooting range would be properly classified as construction. As a result FAR Part 36 Construction and Architect-Engineering Contracts would apply.
