This presentation will review the upcoming City of Seattle Building Performance Standard (BPS) and how other cities/states are enacting the BPS laws. Michael will explain how this climate change-driven law will affect multi-family and commercial building owners with their reserve studies/Capital Expenditure Plans, and budgets.  Michael will also share examples, items to consider as Existing Building work is planned, and how some will trigger Substantial Alterations.
