Climate Change and Design: What do Owners want from their Design Professionals?

Climate change considerations are becoming increasingly important in the design process. Project owners are being presented and challenged with a range of decisions regarding design options with respect to climate risk. That field of options and range of corresponding owner decisions present professional liability risk issues for consulting engineers. Join us on January 25th to hear from a panel of experts about what is being done at the state and local levels to address that challenge and to promote best practices in engineering projects.

The panel includes:

  • Andrew Brennan, Director of Environmental Affairs, MBTA
  • Jeremy Caron, Sr. Energy and Sustainability Project Manager, Energy and Sustainability Program, DCAMM
  • John Messervy, Corporate Director of Design and Construction, Partners Heathcare Inc.
  • Houssam Sleiman, Director of Capital Programs and Environmental Affairs, Massport

Moderated by Lisa Dickson, Associate Principal and Director of Resilience for the Americas, Arup

Opening Remarks by Patricia B. Gary, Of Counsel, Donovan Hatem, LLP
