LIABILITY IN GREEN BUILDING
Lane Kelman and Jennifer Budd identified the issues that cause litigation in green building construction projects. The best defense to a lawsuit is to be aware of pitfalls and to proactively implement preventative measures to liability. This program applied that strategy to the unique issues that arise in green building such as efficiency performance, tax and governmental incentives, and ability to achieve certifications such as LEED, in addition to other issues. Attendees learned how to prevent these issues through effective contracting and project management as well as how to develop procedures that will reduce liability when undertaking green building construction.
