GREEN CONSTRUCTION

GREEN CONSTRUCTION

Green construction law is still evolving and as the law continues to develop, a number of disputes have and will continue to rise in green building projects.

Aric Williams Law will represent your interests in these unique projects. Whether you are seeking protection from liability or you are being threatened with litigation. Our business attorney has extensive experience representing contractors, subcontractors, commercial entities and building owners in construction issues.

Green construction projects are subject to federal regulations, state regulations and local regulations. We will advise you as to how these regulations will impact your company and your building projects.

Green building projects are complicated and highly regulated. Especially in comparison with standard contracts and bidding codes, where these regulations may not apply.

Damages that an owner may recover from a contractor for a failed green building project may be greater than those involved in a traditional building project.

You’ll want to avoid a contract that avails your company any additional risks, other than what is absolutely necessary. We provide a thorough review of any contracts associated with this type of green construction.
