About this event
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, Owner’s Representatives, Project Managers, Site Superintendents, Estimators, Students, and others interested in entering the building and construction industry.
Participants take a two-day virtual training and then finish GPRO CM by completing three online electives that are most relevant to their work.

Why attend a GPRO training?
“Knowing the importance of designing a building to meet the requirements of GPRO standards—on not only the electrical side but also the HVAC, Plumbing, and Carpentry—has been a huge advantage when taking plans to the architect and electrical engineer… This has helped in us being the contractor of choice.” — Glenn F.
