Commissioning—Where the Rubber Meets the Road
Long before green building hit the radar, savvy owners insisted on formal commissioning programs to assure design goals are met. Now LEED for New Construction (LEED-NC) requires it. Commissioning planning should start during the design process; find out how to implement commissioning best practices, how it’s done, who should perform it, and why it often improves the opportunity to achieve on-time and on-schedule project delivery. Hear experienced experts, including commissioning expert Amir Yazdi, P.E., LEED-AP, of CTG Energetics, provide insight gained on 35 projects of all sizes and types.

Legal and Risk Considerations
Construction attorneys Bryan Jackson and Mike Cathcart from Allen Matkins Leck Gamble Mallory & Natsis LLP along with William Broz, P.E. of CTG Forensics LLP, discuss the major risks associated with green building—capital (design/build cost & schedule), operational (operation costs), and reputational (failure to achieve certification)—as well as emerging risks such as ownership, regulatory, and casualty. Much is at stake, including loss of financial incentives, occupancy delays, future marketability and reputation, for starters. Risks affect all parties—owner, designer, contractor and CM—and are best dealt with at contract formation.
