Sustainable construction and rehabilitation are the blueprints of transformation, where architecture and innovation merge with environmental stewardship and social progress. It is the foundation upon which we build a future of sustainable infrastructure, where every structure tells a story of responsible design, resource efficiency, and a harmonious coexistence with nature, leaving a lasting legacy of resilience, beauty, and sustainable living.

The Sustainable Construction and Rehabilitation of Tourist and Hospitality Industry Facilities course is designed to provide participants with essential knowledge and skills for the sustainable development and rehabilitation of tourist resorts.
The programme addresses the specific challenges faced in the construction sector in the context of tourism, providing strategies and best practices to promote environmental, social and economic sustainability in tourist resorts’ construction, operation and rehabilitation.
Adopting strategies and practices conducive to economic and environmental sustainability is a sure step towards strengthening the competitiveness of the tourist resort business and making a decisive contribution to making Portugal an increasingly eco-efficient destination, capable of ensuring that future generations can enjoy the assets that distinguish us today.
This course is part of a 6-module postgraduation. If you are interested in participating in any of the other modules, please contact us or look at the Sustainable Strategies for Tourism & Hospitality Postgraduation.
Content of this course:
The Sustainable Construction and Rehabilitation of Tourist and Hospitality Industry Facilities course aims to provide specialised, appropriate training for stakeholders (managers, developers, designers, maintenance managers, etc.) in the field of tourist developments to adopt sustainability measures as a way of boosting productivity and financial return in the design, construction and operation phases of tourist developments.
In order to balance corporate interests with the needs of all stakeholders, the projects, works and management processes of tourist resorts must build a productive management relationship with their stakeholders or promoters and thus understand the implications of their operations in all dimensions of sustainability – economic, social and environmental.
In this context, this course aims to increase the adoption of eco-efficient practices and show how it is possible to make the business more sustainable, with less consumption of resources and, at the same time, greater economic and environmental benefits.
The Sustainable Construction and Rehabilitation of Tourist and Hospitality Industry Facilities course is suitable for professionals involved in the construction and rehabilitation of tourist developments, including developers, architects, engineers, project managers, consultants, government representatives and professionals from organisations related to the tourism sector.
Participants should have some previous experience in the construction field and be interested in developing knowledge and skills in sustainable construction in the context of tourism developments.
