ConsensusDOCS 310 Green Building Addendum

One of the signs green building is moving into the mainstream is the formulation of industry standard form contracts specifically tailored for green construction projects.  Perhaps the leading such document is the ConsensusDOCS 310 Green Building Addendum, which among other things provides a means by which parties can allocate risks unique to green building.  Martha Perkins, a Partner in Whiteford, Taylor & Preston's Washington office, served on the Associated General Contractors of America's Contract Documents Committee Green Building Task Force, which drafted the Green Building Addendum.  Her summary and analysis of the Green Building Addendum was recently featured in the National Association of Surety Bond Producers' Legal Spotlight, and can be found here.
