Project management is a complex process that requires commitment, strong will and teamwork to ensure success in terms of cost, time, quality, safety and client satisfaction. The concept of green renovation is new as actions to reduce CO2 continue to capture the attention of the world. The main aim of the study is to align the concept of green renovation to the selection of competent project managers/consultants. A survey of selected district assemblies in Ghana was undertaken. The nature of green renovation influenced the selection of the district as those with no records of such renovations were not included. District assemblies are motivated to select project managers with adequate working experience and knowledge of sustainable technologies. The results indicate ability to work effectively in a team, evidence of adequate training and green renovation projects managed also influence selection of a project manager. The theory underpinning project management reinforces the results identified as challenges that hinder effective project delivery are addressed. The findings inform government decision to engage project managers for green renovation projects and provides literature for teaching and learning.
