Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
No, you do not need to change your company purpose in order to hire employees from outside of the US and apply for proper visas for them. You are not an employment agency if you are hiring employees to come work for you. If you are procuring employees for a third company who will be the actual employer, then what you would do in that situation is separate that business from your current business by forming an LLC with the secretary of state and that LLC would be the one who gets the employees from out of the US and places them with the US employer.
Your current company has the right to carry on all business that is legal in the US, specifically your construction business. But just because you are in the construction business with your company does not mean your construction company cannot conduct other legal business under the same corporation and it does not require you to change the purpose of your company.
Those are your options based on what you stated above.
