Green Panel Members  

CDRS NATIONAL GREEN PANEL

The “CDRS National Green Panel” is comprised of Construction-Knowledgeable ADR Specialists who have a special expertise related to green building or remodeling. That expertise can include a knowledge of energy issues, conservation of resources, environmental sustainability, indoor air quality, green building materials, green building practices, carbon-neutral construction, sustainable construction and other related green building and remodeling specializations. CDRS has Specialists who are RESNET Raters, HERS Raters, VOC Testers, conduct blower door tests and forensic experience related to green issues and other special testing processes related to green building. Our Green Specialists are either trained and experienced mediators and/or arbitrators or are capable of serving as green experts in green disputes that come before arbitrators, judges or juries. Green Building is so new that very few if any arbitrators or judges will have any knowledge of green building issues so the best and most convincing presentation will probably be the “winner” in a green related dispute, not necessarily who is right or wrong.

CDRS is committed to providing all parties involved in a green-related dispute, with a green-knowledgeable mediator or arbitrator so that the outcome of a mediation or arbitration should be based on knowledge as opposed to being based on the best and most convincing presentation only. CDRS highly recommends that all contractors who build or remodel and incorporate green building or remodeling in their construction will specify CDRS as the mediation and/or arbitration provider in their construction contracts to assure that they will have a green-knowledgeable mediator or arbitrator conducting the dispute resolution process specified to settle their disputes.

The CDRS National Green Panel Members are listed by states. By clicking on the name of the Green Specialist, you will be taken to the full biography of the Green Specialist which will contain information on the special green expertise of the Green Panel Member. Please feel free to contact CDRS if you should have a need for an ADR Specialist, expert or tester who has a specific green expertise as CDRS has a data bank of information on all of our ADR Specialists.

If you are in any way involved in providing green design, green services such as a rater or verifier, are a green builder/remodeler, or provide any other materials or services related to green construction, please be certain to review the "Suggested Green Contract Language" in section of the CDRS website.
