The ESIC is applicable if you are doing any addition construction Work in the premises of the factory,if you factory is newly set/ Employee compensation Policy
For New Construction NO ESIC is applicable , but the construction activity carried in a factory, where the workmen woking in the premises of the factory are covered under ESIC then the said construction activity comes under the provision of ESIC Act

I totally agree with you that E S I act is not applicable to Construction Industry, How the compliance is need to be made is it required to take Workmen's Compensation policy from any insurance company.
