license for a construction business
Explanation:
I offer this as an alternative to Natalie's suggestion. The text is referring to an application with the business registry for a license to run a construction (or building) business, and this is worded in the typical ornately worded language of Russian "officialdom" that should probably be simplified for the sake of a more natural English rendering.

The license for entrepreneurial activity in construction and building


Explanation:
I gave here juridical term, though "entrepreneurial activity" sounds rather stupid in construction. Anyhow, I tried to follows official and juridical documents ad hoc.
Note that juridical translations are very impressive and sometime recall an attempt to draw a woman by means of a hammer...
Note that for consulting for juridical terms one site seems to be useful:
www.garant.ru
There are some other juridical and legislation info sites (consultant.ru, etc.), but please note that some of them are not free of charge.

1) www.bisnis.doc.gov/bisnis/country/001018women.htm with words "development of different types of entrepreneurial activity in the construction sector" (USA site!!!)

2) ...and entrepreneurial activity in the Free Economic ... organisation
of design and construction ... (this can be seen on www.tatar.ru/english/append104.html which is very near from my city:-))

3) ... This kind of entrepreneurial
activity tends to be in manufacturing, construction, and transportation... (see www.asiasource.org/reference/display.cfm?wordid=1815 )
etc.

disagree  Alexander Onishko: Why do you say "construction and building"? do you mean these terms compliment each other? Then what is the difference ?

(Building) Contractor's License


Explanation:
This (based on my admittedly limited experience in this area) seems to be the standard American equivalent of what is meant here, and would be instantly recognizable to an American in this field. However, some might prefer a more literal translation such as have been suggested (e.g., "License to engage in entrepreneurial activity...")
