Sustainable design and construction continues to be a rapidly evolving area of importance to the construction industry. Codes, like the 2012 International Green Constriction Code (IgCC), and certification systems, like Green Globes (TM), will continue to create new roles, responsibilities and risks for Owners, Architects and Contractors. It is important to develop contracts that are specifically tailored to these new or expanded roles, responsibilities and risks.
The updated Guide for Sustainable Projects includes:
- An example Sustainability Plan and how it can serve as a model for developing a plan according to the project needs.
- Expanded section on the discussion of key Sustainability Certifications, IGCC, Environmental Product ratings and insurance issues.
- Detailed commentary on each of the new provisions included in the current Sustainable Project (SP) contract documents released in May 2012.
