LEEDing Ladies:  Conversations on Construction.  Episode 3: The Consequences of Consequential Damages

 It’s no surprise that green building projects often carry with them unique expectations that are often not at issue in conventional construction projects.  But what happens when those expectations aren’t met?

Join Hunt Ortmann and USGBC-LA on July 23rd 2020 from 11:00 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. to learn more about the consequences of consequential damages in green building.  During this webinar, we’ll discuss:

•             What exactly are consequential damages?

•             How they can come into play during green building projects;

•             Ways to utilize your contracts to best protect yourself.

Don’t be caught unawares! Join us so you had into your next project with your eyes wide open.
