The Brookline Building Department oversees the development and maintenance of all Town facilities. Town Building is committed to diversity and inclusion and encourages SDO-certified firms to learn more about the bidding process. Project administrators are actively looking for qualified diverse firms to bid on construction projects.
These projects are complex and involve a mix of professional services, skilled trades, and contractors. The construction of public buildings is broken into two major categories, Vertical Construction and Horizontal Construction, each with different standards and requirements. The department follows the Division of Capital Asset Management and Maintenance’s project standards, and works with DCAMM-certified firms.
The Building Department follows all the relevant town, state, and federal purchasing guidelines, including MGL 30, MGL 149, and MGL 14A. Learn more about rules and regulations here.
