    Defining Undefined Loss Exposure in Green Construction

    A green heating system that doesn’t heat. LEED-certified units that meet fewer than half the requirements for certification. Clients suing construction firms because of lost tax breaks from promised green buildings.

    Welcome to green construction. Even as the green construction movement is taking wing, legal experts are warning of the dangerous territory ahead.

    We cannot sustainably keep pace with the world’s continuously growing hunger for energy if we continue along our current path.

    Army to Congress: LEED Doesn’t Cost More

    The Army is still going for Gold and Platinum despite recent legislation calling a halt to LEED spending. Fort Carson is piloting net-zero energy, water, and waste–and expects to meet that target by 2020. The federal government has been one of the biggest supporters of LEED certification in the last few years, with the General Services Administration (GSA) requiring basic LEED certification for all federal buildings starting in 2003 and then upping that requirement to LEED Gold in 2010 .
