Cohen Seglias Partner Lane Kelman and Associate Lori Wisniewski Azzara recently authored an article, “Precasters’ Opportunities & Liability in Green Projects” which appeared in the November/December issue of Precast, Inc. magazine. This is the official magazine of the National Precast Association.

A surge in green construction, with new LEED-related strategies and technologies, means greater market opportunities for the precast concrete industry. Along with these new opportunities, however, it is imperative that contractors and manufacturers thoroughly understand precast concrete’s role in a sustainable project and how precast inherently contributes to achieving green project goals. Moreover, to protect their interests and the bottom line, producers and contractors must understand the unique risks and legal issues associated with green construction.”
