GPRO Construction Management, Online Training with Urban Green Council
Event Description

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: 

  • Construction Managers
  • General Contractors
  • Experienced Tradespersons
  • Trade Forepersons
  • Owner's Representatives 
  • Project Managers and Site Superintendents
  • Estimators
  • Students and others interested in entering the building and construction industry

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. Taught by highly knowledgeable industry professionals, participants will leave the course with practical steps to direct and manage  successful, sustainable, and cost-effective projects.


After this course, students will be able to:

  • 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.
