Learn about our work
We work with colleagues in City government to engage with constituent groups in determining the best locations and design for our construction and renovation projects.
We also ensure that City buildings are accessible to all residents, meet or exceed life safety codes, and are constructed with maximum efficiency and sustainability in mind.
Our legal staff ensures that our contracting processes follow these Massachusetts General Laws:
- M.G.L. Chapter 30B (Uniform Procurement Act)
- M.G.L. Chapter 30, § 39M (Procuring Construction Materials without Labor)
- M.G.L. Chapter 7C, §§ 44-57 (Designer Selection)
- M.G.L. Chapter 149, §§ 44A-44J (Public Building Construction)
- M.G.L. Chapter 149A, §§ 1-13 (Construction Management at Risk)
The Operations and Construction Unit of our department manages capital construction projects from their beginning to end. Our Planning and Management Unit tracks projects, keeps information on schedules and budgets, and manages annual Capital Planning, Master Planning processes, and the Management Information System.
