Decreasing the Potential for Liabilities Associated with Green and High Performance Building

Green builders, remodelers and other building industry professionals can decrease their risk through proper messaging, effective documentation and detailed planning. The entire team, from sales to warranty, must understand the proper terminology, what statements can be made, and how the process in itself provides a level of protection. This module is part of the Advanced High Performance Building: Project Management course.
