What is Sustainable Construction Management Technology (SCMT)?

                   BE PART OF THE SOLUTION. A forward thinking program designed to enable,
                empower and inspire the emerging generation of construction managers and 
                technologist
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.
