Patricia Gary to Speak at the EBC Third Annual New England Climate Change and Resiliency Summit

Patricia Gary will be a speaker at the Environmental Business Council New England’s Third Annual New England Climate Change and Resiliency Summit on Friday, July 23, 2021.

Trish will present at the morning session regarding the professional standard of care and climate liablity, including:

  • The impacts from climate change are already occurring, creating new design challenges.
  • Recent case studies illustrate that “reasonably foreseeable” future conditions are changing the legal standards for the design and construction of new infrastructure, and renovation of existing structures.
  • Effective risk management requires design professionals to evaluate the robustness of design, and the evolving professional standard of care,  to  ensure resiliency over the design life of the project.
  • Design professionals should address their professional liability risks through effective contracting practices, risk management, and insurance coverage strategies.
