Construction Reform

ACEC/MA provided comments on the Chapter 193 Construction Reform legislation passed in July 2004. Technical edits have also been proposed by ACEC/MA, Boston Society of Architects (BSA) and other reviewers with some minor corrections having been passed. The main revisions in this law required the use of an Owners Project Manager for vertical construction projects over $2.5 Million, allows the use of design-build for public works (horizontal) construction projects over $ 10 Million and allows for Construction Manager at Risk delivery to be used for vertical construction projects.
