Steve Charney served as the co-chair of the ConsensusDOCSTM and the AGC committees for the development and drafting of the first and only standard form agreement for “green” construction. This landmark document is the first to recognize the need for someone to lead “green” building issues and addresses, in detail, a process for parties to follow in developing a “green” project, as well as the structure for dealing with the liability issues associated with “green” construction. This contract document, ConsensusDOCSTM 310, was published on November 10, 2009. Additionally, Steve Charney and Tom Thompson recently spoke about this issue and other strategies for identifying and managing the risks involved with “green” construction at the IRMI Construction Risk Conference on November 2nd in Washington, DC.
