ABOUT THIS COURSE:
Low-carbon, energy-efficient construction will play a critical role in meeting increasingly stringent local and national building performance goals. These projects will require an understanding of new technologies, processes, and improved coordination across disciplines.
GPRO Construction Management provides practitioners with sustainability best practices and actionable strategies for every phase of construction, as well as how to avoid common mistakes.
This course is ideal for a range of construction professionals, including:
Participants take a one-day classroom training (in person or virtually) and then finish GPRO CM by completing three online electives that are most relevant to their work. Students who take 3 electives and pass the online exam with an 80% or higher become a GPRO Certificate Holder. Taught by highly knowledgeable industry professionals, participants will leave the course with practical steps to direct and manage successful, sustainable, and cost-effective projects.
This class session will be held virtually over zoom.
Explain the key coordination issues and documentation requirements that are unique to high- performance construction at each stage of a project.
Describe responsibilities of the CM and project team to ensure building performance.
Implement sustainable construction processes and communicate required information to subcontractors and trades.
Coordinate testing, inspection, and commissioning activities to ensure intended performance.
