Infrastructure design is evolving in response to new net-zero laws and policies focused on resilience. On Thursday, May 19, 2022, Patricia B. Gary, Esq. will moderate a panel on of two leading experts in the areas of mitigation and adaptation:
This roundtable is brought to you in conjunction with ACEC of Massachusetts.
Molly Dee-Ramasamy is Director of JB&B’s Deep Carbon Reduction Group, a team focused on decarbonization in the built environment. Her experience includes identifying opportunities for implementing energy conservation measures and low-carbon design strategies with the intent of improving energy efficiency, driving down carbon emissions, and helping clients realize energy cost saving associated with energy improvements and upgrades. She has experience in a wide range of market sectors, successfully providing energy services, new building commissioning, existing building commissioning, engineering surveys and studies, and special inspections.
Julie Eaton Ernst, PE is the climate resilience team leader at Weston & Sampson. A Professional Engineer and MVP Certified Provider, she is responsible for providing targeted engineering services and advice related to resiliency and adaptation, including multi-hazard risk assessments, resilience planning, and the identification of flexible, engineered adaptation strategies. Julie approaches climate resilience from the dual perspectives of policy/planning and design/engineering to communicate the need for planning and preparedness, evaluate potential impacts to vulnerable infrastructure and natural resources, and develop a range of resilient design strategies that emphasize flexible approaches, manage risk and uncertainty, and create value. She specializes in using a risk-based approach to assess, identify, and prioritize adaptation strategies. Julie routinely leads interdisciplinary project teams and has special expertise with translating climate projections into design standards and implementing resilience across planning and design projects.
Patricia B. Gary focuses her practice on the defense of professional liability actions against architects and engineers. She handles complex commercial disputes for individuals and businesses across a broad range of industries.
She provides legal advice to construction project participants in drafting and negotiating their design and construction contracts to carefully allocate risks and responsibilities, and minimize exposure.
