Green Construction Training Program

How can a Green Construction Site Coordinator help on a green building project?

A Green Construction Site Coordinator is a valuable addition to all green building projects as they ensure that the green site operations are managed safely and efficiently. They also train all trades as they arrive on site to ensure consistent communication of the green building project’s goals and requirements.

A two-day training program has been designed for participants to learn about green building basics for a site along with safety orientation.
