Course description

Site Sustainability Manager

Our Site Sustainability Manager course prepares learners to become a construction site sustainability champion, ensuring environmental impacts are minimised.

BREEAM AP Site (also known as a Site Sustainable Manager or SSM) has a focus on sustainability on the construction site.

Their main responsibility is to support the project's achievement of sustainability aspirations at the construction, handover and close out stages, and the targeted BREEAM rating. They are the champions of sustainability on site and ensure environmental site impacts are minimised.

For BREEAM assessed projects, the involvement of a qualified BREEAM AP Site / SSM earns BREEAM credits in the Management category, and further credits can be achieved by monitoring and limiting site impacts.
