Construction, Design, and Environmental Problems in Municipal Facilities

February 22, 2016
Most municipalities have responsibility for a myriad of facilities that require regular maintenance, permitting for new construction and renovations, and a cadre of construction projects. Taking a proactive approach to facility maintenance, the permitting process, and construction claim resolution can make all the difference in ensuring that buildings are serving their intended purpose and not harming the local environment.

Join experts from Wiss, Janney, Elstner Associates and attorneys from Barnes & Thornburg LLP for this informative program on how to:

  • Implement simple steps, at little or no cost, to improve code compliance of design and construction
  • Uncover potentially dangerous deficiencies that occur too often in design and construction
  • Find and prioritize critical deterioration and aging issues so that you can improve public safety
  • Avoid common problems such as water leakage, condensation, organic growth, and building envelope distress in buildings
  • Negotiate construction contracts and solutions to avoid frequently litigated provisions, including delay and disruption claims
  • Address environmental consequences related to failures or unauthorized releases
  • Approach and resolve construction defect claims and insurance coverage issues with alternative dispute resolution methods

The program will also include case studies and a roundtable discussion designed specifically to address the concerns of municipalities.
