In 2004, Massachusetts passed another law regulating Public Construction in the Commonwealth. Being mostly engineers and owners, the first thing that comes to mind when you hear “law regulating public construction” is “how is this going to affect my project?” And the next thing you see is dollar signs floating through the air. This paper will show you how this is one regulation and one process that will cost a little money and legwork upfront but will save you significant dollars, reduce stress, and benefit your project in the long term. Case studies will include the Westborough Wastewater Treatment Plant Upgrade Project, Nantucket Surfside Wastewater Treatment Plant Upgrade Project, Nantucket Public Safety Facility Project, and the Hopkinton Fruit Street Wastewater Treatment Plant Project. Topics will include the Massachusetts Chapter 193 of the Acts of 2004 and Division of Capital Asset Management and their influence on the Prequalification Process.
