Can we put all the buildings on our campus in one WMP?
We have several buildings that are all the same type and about the same size but they are located in different areas. Can we put all the buildings in one WMP?
How should we handle leasehold interests?
It varies case by case. We discuss it in one of our courses and also in a LAMPS training note. In short, the ultimate objective is to ensure the building water systems are properly managed. Sometimes that requires only a meeting or phone call between the parties from time to time. In other cases, attorneys need to draw up contracts. Ideally, both the landlord and tenant will properly manage the water systems over which they have maintenance responsibility.
As an attorney and consultant to the insurance industry on water management programs and underwriting the risk of Legionella, we have found the WMPs developed by HC Info to meet all the requirements of both the insured and the insurance company. The plans are cost competitive, comprehensive, and meet the regulatory as well as the user requirements.Russell Nassof
“Due to a recent property assignment acquisition and facing newly enacted state requirements, we were left with very a limited time-frame to complete a cooling tower water management plan. I am grateful to have discovered HC Info, and thankful to our contractor for having recommended it. The [LAMPS WMP Platform] site made plan development simple and efficient. There were no complications along the way.”Kevin Ullrich, LEED Green Associate
