Overview

The persistent push to build more sustainable and energy efficient buildings requires owners, design teams, and contractors to step out of their comfort zone and adopt the new products and emerging technologies which will help them reach the project’s energy and sustainability goals.  Frequently, a net-zero energy goal results in a combination of building technologies which have never been tested before.  The inherent risks and rewards in attempting to build with new products and technologies are often not addressed until they result in delays or change orders.  Even the most critical areas of a hospital can become green without any adverse risk. This session offers strategies to manage risk from idea to implementation from the perspective of a building owner, a construction defect attorney, and a professional design engineer. Learn how to guarantee the success of your green building project!
