Greenwood Village, CO – Turner Construction, in partnership with the Associated General Contractors, recently held a graduation ceremony for 34 graduates of the Turner School of Construction Management Program. This course, which Turner’s Denver Business Unit has hosted for the last 16 years, was offered free of charge to small, minority, and women-owned businesses in the Denver metro area.
The ten-week course began on February 2, 2016 with classes being held every Tuesday evening at AGC Colorado’s classroom. Courses were led by various business professionals including Turner staff members as well as a construction lawyer from Moye White. Topics included: Green Building, Project Delivery Systems, How to Run Your Business, How to Get Paid, Estimating/Procurement, BIM, Scheduling, Accounting, Field Operations, Safety, Sales, and Marketing.
The Turner School of Construction Management is the oldest community outreach program in Turner’s history. It was initiated in 1969, one year after their Affirmative Action Department was created. It soon became an opportunity to develop strategic business relationships with minority and women-owned firms. The program started in the Cleveland office and is now offered in more than 30 Turner business units.
