The construction industry is one of the larger pollutants with waste such as dust, noise, rubble and waste including excess building material, packaging and demolition material. With ever-growing international awareness and regulations to curb pollution, construction managers are under pressure to ensure that the activities for which they are responsible are carried out in a sustainable and environmental-friendly manner, in most cases this has become obligatory. Construction managers need to be fully conversant with such obligations and must be able to manage the construction activity, from design stage to final completion, within the constraints of these requirements. Having a new building certified to internationally-known accreditation standards, such as LEED or BREEAM, ensures that the building is constructed using sustainable techniques, and increases the public image of the property and ensures sales in future.
