We are planning to acquire a building that has already been completely built and would use it for a behavioral health clinic space instead of its original intent, an office building. Do DIR prevailing wage rules still apply?

Department of Industrial Relations rules and prevailing wages apply to any engineering or construction work you perform on the site. If you are acquiring a turnkey or move-in ready building that does not require any rehabilitation or remodeling, there is no construction workforce to be hired. Therefore, there is no need to register with the DIR and there are no prevailing wage-related activities
