Sustainable Construction

Sustainable Construction is Here to StaySustainable “green” construction is in the news and here to stay.

Here at Construction Law Musings, we like to keep up with the world of sustainable construction and the legal issues that face contractors, subcontractors and even construction lawyers relating to this growing field.  The topics range from LEED certification issues to potential risks and rewards of “green” building and how to draft your construction contract to plan for such risks and take advantage of the rewards.

These posts are not just my “musings,” but those of many individuals who have posted in the Guest Post Friday series.  I hope that you will check out the posts below and let me know your thoughts.
