(62) VACANT BUILDING ORDINANCE
STRATEGIES, supra note 56, at 7.
The boundary of this zone is an exact replication, a direct descendant, of the boundaries designated by the Building Ordinances
in the preceding decade.
* The city of San Francisco has announced the adoption of a green building ordinance
that requires all new construction projects, including city-owned and leased facilities, to achieve Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Silver certification from the U.S.
In the two previous Risk Primer columns, we have reviewed the direct damage loss exposures created by building ordinances
or laws and the coverage offered by ISO under its ordinance or law coverage endorsement (CP 04 05) to address these exposures.
These results have added a new clause to our building ordinances
. Our village now requires the installation of Cretex internal or external chimney seals and solid manhole covers in all new or rebuilt manholes throughout the village on both public and private property.
Violations of building ordinances
have also been widespread.
The move to adopt LEED standards in municipal building ordinances
It is interesting to note that Coverage A of this endorsement is triggered by the enforcement of "any ordinance or law" whereas Coverages B and C are triggered by the enforcement of "building, zoning, or land use ordinance or law." Opinion is divided on whether or not ADA requirements constitute building ordinances
