Abstract:As construction standards are increasingly getting stricter and greener, construction project managers (CPMs) are required to adapt their competences and managerial practices to meet the Nearly-Zero Energy Buildings (NZEBs) requirements. CPMs play an essential role in the realization of projects and have the potential to assume the role of change agent in the evolving construction industry. To contribute to their professional development, this thesis aims to identify the competency profile of green CPMs. Their competences are retrieved from competency frameworks of well-accepted project management organizations through a qualitative content analysis, and are in turn tested with construction experts through in-depth interviews. Through a literature-based analysis and interviews, the results have shown that the competency profile of green CPMs encompasses broad knowledge and numerous managerial skills. This study can help establish a knowledge base for CPMs in order to be competitive and to proficiently execute NZEB projects.
