Assessing and Reducing the risks of greener construction

Innovative “eco” products and conventional building materials, which use new greener raw materials, may now pose inherent risks due to lack of evidence of long term reliability and safety.

As a result procurement and specification professionals should consider the need to interrogate manufacturers and revisit bibles of specification documents to exclude themselves from potential liability claims.

Specifiers should interrogate manufacturers to ensure that listed chemicals are not present in their products. They might also ask to be made aware of products that have been subject to REACH regulations and be informed of the nature of any substitutes including data that demonstrates (or otherwise) a continuation of performance quality.

What then are the risks in cutting edge design and installation? The law expects designers and suppliers to have the expertise to differentiate and integrate products that work.  How do you stay Legally Green? What is the risk and liability exposure? We look at case law and recent building defect case studies to help you understand this new world and offer a Building Defects Avoidance pathway.

Presented by Brian Murphy, leading Architectural Specification Consultant and member of the Green Register and Chris Scott leading Construction Contract Lawyer and founder of Legally Green.
