Incorporating sustainability into projects



through the AIA Sustainable Projects Exhibit

 

Thursday, September 24, 2020   |   2-3 pm ET   |   Free webinar

Sustainable projects offer exciting opportunities for the construction industry to drive positive change by reducing negative environmental impacts, improving energy efficiency, and enhancing the health of building occupants. Join us as we explore various risk considerations on sustainable projects and examine how the AIA Sustainable Projects Exhibit can help to manage these risks, as well as facilitate the provision of sustainability services and the achievement of sustainability goals on a project.

Attendees will:

• Examine how a clear understanding of each party’s unique roles and responsibilities will reduce project delays and misunderstandings, contribute to a successful sustainable project, and enhance the health and well-being of building occupants.

• Survey the unique contractual risks that architects, owner, and contractors face when participating in sustainable projects in order to minimize or avoid them.

• Identify key contractual modifications that can help alleviate the risks and challenges of sustainable design and construction in order to achieve a successful project.

• Explore sustainable concepts related to the newer construction management delivery model and how these concepts contrast with the traditional design-bid-build delivery model.
