Alternative Energy & Green Building
Our construction lawyers are experienced in drafting environmental provisions in contracts and advising clients regarding construction law matters in projects involving environmental abatement and retrofits and conversions required by environmental laws. We consult with our environmental lawyers regarding regulatory issues that arise in construction and design projects, including but not limited to site investigation, risk assessment, site remediation, managing contaminated media, construction and maintenance of engineered barriers, evaluation of internal environmental issues such as asbestos or vapor intrusion.
Alternative energy projects are characterized by innovative technology and laudable goals. They also present special legal and business challenges. We assist clients with transactions and claims in alternative energy plant projects ranging from solar and wind energy to biofuels. Our lawyers are also experienced with the trends and legal requirements of sustainability and green building construction. We draft contracts for high-performance and green building projects, and advise clients regarding compliance with green building codes and designations.
