Building in our increasingly humid and wet weather creates enormous challenges for delivering durable, safe, and healthy places to live. There is a growing need to develop more effective envelope and interior moisture management strategies to ensure we can meet these goals and reduce the likelihood of building defects arising over time.

In Part 1 of this series, James Ball and Doug McCleery of MaGrann Associates will present an overview of the challenges and provide best practices for managing these complex building science systems from a design and construction perspective. Solutions will address managing moisture resulting from the envelope, building materials, humidity inside homes, and labor issues related to successful assembly strategies.

With respect to construction defects related to moisture, you have the ability to manage your exposure to risk. In Part 2, insurance professional Jay T. Crosby of Emmanuel Risk Solutions and construction attorneys Lane Kelman and Matthew Skaroff of Cohen Seglias will discuss the key strategies and considerations for developers, builders, contractors, and subcontractors to protect themselves for moisture-related problems on a project.

Protecting yourself from moisture claims begins with your contract, extends into insurance coverage, and ends with claim management.  Learn the key elements and nuances needed to make the best decisions to protect yourself on a project.

Developers, builders, GCs, subcontractors, design professionals, and advisors should attend. Learn more about the program and speakers and register now at the links below.
