Yes, Ma'am, that's just what it means. Your tile layout must include a movement accommodation joint, or "soft joint," immediately above the construction joint and must be at least as wide as the construction joint. It can be filled with a flexible sealant or a mechanical joint filler made for the application. Your tiling substrate must be separated at that type of joint as well.

While there are methods of "relocating" movement joints over some types of concrete joints, you cannot do that with a construction joint.

If you could move your wall to just a bit, a doorway is an excellent place for a movement accommodation joint in the tile surface.

My opinion; worth price charged.
