About the Webinar:

Construction litigation is expensive and time-consuming, involving multiple parties pointing fingers at each other for project delays, problems with the installation process and/or defects in the final product. These problems will only increase as climate change makes designing and constructing the built environment more challenging, thereby increasing the risks of litigation. All parties involved in a construction project, however, can take steps to reduce these risks by analyzing and addressing the potential climate-change-related issues that could arise in their region, from extreme rain events and extreme heat to flooding and sea level rise at the beginning of a construction project. This webinar will explain the difference between resiliency and sustainability, why resiliency is important and how it can be incorporated into your next project.
