This CMAA Sustainability Guidelines document is a supplement to the sustainability chapter of the CMAA Construction Management Standards of Practice. It provides construction managers (CMs) with practical guidance in sustainability for conducting their responsibilities from project conception through to post-occupancy activities.
These guidelines include updated information on energy, climate adaptation, and resiliency planning. New projects and programs require CMs to keep current with the evolution of sustainability and how it may impact their clients, projects, and programs.
World events continue to affect the industry, and CMs must be prepared to adapt by embracing technological advancements such as improved virtual communication that allow projects to stay on track with minimal impact. A CM’s guidance is also crucial for promoting and championing evolving safety practices while managing all aspects of a project.
