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 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.
