Over the past few years, development activity has increasingly focused on green or sustainable improvements. Many projects, whether private or public, are approved with a goal of achieving a specified level of LEED Certification. LEED projects entail a new and special set of risks and responsibilities which must be carefully and properly allocated in the preparation of project documentation including the Owner-Contractor Agreement and the Owner-Architect Agreement.
We have significant experience advising clients in connection with the preparation and negotiation of sustainable design and construction agreements on LEED projects. Our attorneys have prepared and negotiated LEED design and construction contracts in excess of $100,000,000.00 in contract volume.
