Joe Barra Presents Program on Massachusetts Retainage Act
Construction Group lawyer Joseph A. Barra presented a program entitled “How Will the Massachusetts Retainage Act Affect My Responsibilities on the Project?” as part of the Boston Day-Summit: Construction Institute Boston Chapter in Boston on November 30, 2018. Presented by the Boston Society of Civil Engineers Section, the full-day seminar included a mix of project case studies, technical reviews, legal issues in construction, technology and innovative planning and construction techniques, and specific construction projects and detailed challenges. During his session, Joe examined the application of the Massachusetts Retainage Act to private construction projects in Massachusetts and how the statute changes the traditional paradigm of a project’s close-out process with respect to substantial completion and retainage. Robinson+Cole was a sponsor of the summit.
