Contracts That Promote Building Performance

Tuesday, Jan 14, 2020

Join in a conversation about the future of construction contracts that will keep up with the needs of high performance projects.

Because liability is generally assigned to one party, standard construction contracts can create an adversarial relationship between architects, engineers and owners. With more stringent energy codes + the emissions performance requirements of NYC's Local Law 97, there is a need for contracts that allow for more risk-sharing among project teams.

Learn how contracts can be restructured to improve building performance. Speakers will share a case study of the NREL Research Support Facility project, which was procured with a fixed-price, competitive and performance-based construction agreement.

Sponsors: NYC Bar Association — Environmental Law Committee; Urban Green Council and Con Edison

Speakers: Stefan Knust Senior Associate — Ennead Architects; Joshua Levy, Partner — Tennenbaum Helpern Syracuse & Hirschtritt LLP: and Paul Torcellini, Researcher/Optimization Engineer — NREL Commercial Buildings Research Group

Date and Time: Tuesday, January 14, 2020 6:00 – 8:00pm

Location: NYC Bar Association, 42 West 44 Street

RSVP: NYC Bar Association. Members of Urban Green Council, please call Customer Relations at (212) 382-6663 to register at the member rate
