Sustainable Construction Management Technology

Sustainable Construction Management Technology is a unique two-year program offered by Okanagan College exclusively at its Penticton campus. Students are introduced to new and emerging technologies and gain an in-depth knowledge of construction industry management practices through streams that include sustainability studies, core studies, building studies, commercial studies and project planning.

This is a forward-thinking program designed to enable, empower and inspire the emerging generation of construction managers and technologists to deliver true sustainable development. With an eye to lean and green building principles, a sustainable construction manager organizes and supervises large infrastructure building projects, including sourcing materials, budgeting, scheduling and managing safety procedures and protocols, in ways that minimize the impact of the project on the environment and maximize its energy efficiency.
