Managing Legal Issues on Sustainable Projects

Sustainable design and construction provide exciting opportunities to reduce negative impacts on the environment, improve energy efficiency and building performance, and enhance the health and comfort of building occupants. New building codes and certification systems continually impact sustainable design and construction practices. As sustainable design and construction continues to evolve, owners, architects and contractors will be faced with an increasingly diverse set of standards to apply to their projects. Through an exploration of the design-bid-build, construction management and design-build delivery models, participants in this course will understand the unique roles, responsibilities, risks and opportunities unique to sustainable design and construction projects and discover how to reduce, or better allocate, contractual risks using the AIA’s Sustainable Projects Contract Documents and the revised AIA Sustainability Guide.

Presenting will be:

  • Lane Beougher, Ohio Facilities Construction Commission
