Oh No! Solving Difficult Problems in Green Infrastructure Projects
Includes a Live Event on 08/23/2018 at 2:00 PM (EDT)
Green infrastructure project sponsors are sometimes confronted with seemingly intractable problems that have no good solutions. Such problems seem to be more likely if projects are innovative or involve public/private partnerships. Challenges can include unexpected and unrealistic requirements for liability insurance; contractual clauses that state the government agency partner can demolish your project for any cause and then require you to build it back at your cost; requirements that private sector non-profits meet government procurement regulations and other problems that can make you shake your head in disbelief.
This webinar tackles the really difficult kinds of problems that might crop up in GI projects and shows how, with ingenuity and diligence, every problem can be solved. If you are working on green infrastructure projects with governmental or non-profit partners, you won’t want to miss this interesting webinar that provides valuable guidance on solving the toughest problems.
