The CMP programme has been presented annually since 2007 and has followed developments on the construction front. Companies wishing to sponsor prospective delegates for the 2019 CMP are invited to submit their requests as soon as possible to the CMP director. In 2019 the programme will be structured for persons involved in planning, development, design and management of construction delivery. CMP 2019 will be presented over a period of four weeks, full-time. The very successful total immersion learning methodology will be applied to expose the delegates to the very latest theories, tools and techniques in all aspects of business management in the construction sector. Our alumni are to be found in key positions in infrastructure and building development in Africa and around the world. A chair in Construction Engineering Management which was established in the Department of Civil Engineering at Stellenbosch University in January 2010. The Chair now participates fully in the management of the CMP and is the responsible entity for the presentation from Stellenbosch University.

The Faculty for CMP 2019 will be spearheaded by a collaborative effort between tertiary institutions led by the Stellenbosch University. This will be augmented and supported by faculty drawn from a much wider body of experts and practitioners who may be described as the best in their field in South Africa. Several distinguished academics from countries around the world will also be involved. The material and teaching methodologies are highly stimulating and the material is worked through individually and in group assignments.


Since the inception of the CMP in 1976 it has always adapted to meet current challenges. The CMP of 2019 faces extraordinary times that required innovation, wisdom and lateral thinking. An annual theme for CMP 2019 will be formulated in collaboration with the CMP Industry Advisory Board. Typically an annual theme is selected to match current industry conditions and challenges.

Academic credits towards post graduate studies are awarded to CMP delegates who successfully complete the course and who are enrolled as students at Stellenbosch University (30 SAQA credits). CMP is accredited with ECSA for 16 CPD points. An application for CPD points from SACPCMP has been made and the outcome is imminent.

“CMP provides a unique enabling environment in which experienced industry professionals are able to gain both knowledge and access to extended networking groups”

Richard Evans, Snr Contracts Director – Liviero, Group Executive Strategic Projects: Infrastructure; 1997 CMP Delegate.

“The CMP has a critical role to play in equipping individuals involved in built environment project delivery to meet the exciting growth challenges that lie ahead in South Africa and further afield. It has equipped me to approach my role as constructor in a proud, confident and knowledgeable way, enabling me to interface and contribute at all levels.”
