    Are you a building owner, contractor, or risk manager? Has your green building project put you at risk? Concerned about an unfunded project loss? Do you have a Risk Strategy addressing sustainable exposures?

    As sustainability standards for buildings are heightened across the country, your firm has likely already been awarded a sustainable project that incorporates a Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED) certification level requirement, or you’re probably in the process of bidding on one. While the benefits to the environment and community, owner, contractor and designer are undisputed, there can be significant risk exposures lurking just beneath the surface---join us and find out how to address them.

    This workshop will outline key green building risk management strategies with a focus on contractual and insurance related issues from the perspective of owners, contractors, and risk managers. Case studies and best practices for minimizing green building risks will also be shared.

    8:00 - 8:10 AM: Introductions
    8:10 - 8:45 AM: Owners Concerns (Performance Expectations, Costs, Building Design Team)
    8:45 - 9:30 AM: Bidding and Negotiating Concerns
    9:40 - 10:15 AM: Risk Management Considerations (Contracts, Insurance Issues, Legal, Best Practices)
    10:15 - 10:30 AM: Q&A
