Turner Construction Company recently graduated 17 students from its Turner School of Construction Management (TSCM), a free program for small, disadvantaged, minority-owned, women-owned and veteran-owned businesses.

Initiated in 1969, the program has become an opportunity for firms to improve their economic viability by enhancing their managerial, technical and administrative skills, as well as develop strategic business relationships throughout the industry. Today, the Turner School is offered in more than 30 of Turner’s offices nationwide. This is the first time Turner has offered the program in Huntsville.

Throughout the eight-week course, Turner and its partners covered topics including accounting, insurance and bonding; bidding, estimating and procurement; scheduling and field operations; safety; lean processes; and more.
