Event Description:

Building in our increasingly humid and wet weather creates enormous challenges for delivering durable, safe, and healthy places to live. There is a growing need to develop more effective envelope and interior moisture management strategies to ensure we can meet these goals and reduce the likelihood of building defects arising over time.

With respect to construction defects related to moisture, you have the ability to manage your exposure to risk. In Part 2, insurance professional Jay T. Crosby of Emmanuel Risk Solutions and construction attorneys Lane Kelman and Matthew Skaroff of Cohen Seglias will discuss the key strategies and considerations for developers, builders, contractors, and subcontractors to protect themselves for moisture-related problems on a project.
Protecting yourself from moisture claims begins with your contract, extends into insurance coverage, and ends with claim management.  Learn the key elements and nuances needed to make the best decisions to protect yourself on a project.

Developers, builders, GCs, subcontractors, design professionals, and advisors should attend.
