Modernization of New York's Built Environment: If Not Now, When?
November 12, 2014
This full day educational event featured multiple panel discussions focusing on the need to modernize the built environment laws in New York State for all participants in construction-from owners, designers and architects to engineers and constructors. The objective was to provide a foundation to advance the dialogue among policymakers and stakeholders to overhaul New York State's outdated and archaic system of construction laws.
