Course Descriptions 

Risk Management and LEED

presented by John Toppe & Wayne Dunn (topic presented at GREENBUILD 2009)
  • Deliver green building projects with integrity.
  • Avoid the risks of litigation by proper representation of project expectations. 
  • Learn how to professionally allocate the risks of green building design, construction, marketing, leasing and management.

This Panel will provide guidance to design and construction teams as well as to the developers and managers of facilities. The scope will include advice to design teams from the initial marketing of the client, through the design and construction process to the ultimate attainment of LEED Certification. The panelists will also provide guidance to those who represent buildings to prospective users or buyers: real estate brokers, marketing agents, building managers and owners so that they can avoid both green washing and more importantly, the risk of litigation over unmet promises.

Then, the Panel will shift its focus to the aftermath: the risks of litigation that are created by over-promising rating results, less-than-expected building performance, and the tendency of owners/developers to over-represent the achievement to prospective tenants or purchasers.
