Close Out of a Construction Project
Why would a Contractor, Owner, Consultant or Subcontractor need to know Best Practices for closing out a construction project? The answer is simple – if you can’t get it done then you can’t reach Substantial Performance. If End Users are not able to use the facility as intended, then all involved will have to spend more time and money to help wrap it up and everybody’s monies will be delayed. Getting a project to Substantial Performance and then to Total Performance are two of the most difficult milestones in the construction process to achieve.
This full day session will discuss how the principles of organizing early, teamwork and communication work together to achieve a successful project close out. Construction Project Close Out is organized into 5 basic phases: Pre-Construction Close Out, Construction Close Out, Post Construction Close Out, Organizational Close Out, Subcontractor Close Out and Financial Close Out. Each phase has its own processes and procedures that must be organized, put into place and executed. Using a manual, which includes spreadsheets, checklists and how-to’s, participants will learn all of the steps in setting up a project to close it out successfully. Topics discussed will include: O&M manual development and tracking, pre-construction meetings, commissioning planning, permits, deficiency, QA/QC management, Substantial Performance, Final Completion etc. Participants will be introduced to best practices and “tips and tricks” which will expedite and simplify the takeover of a project by its Owner from the Contractor, who managed the construction, so that the last 3% of the project is not 15% of the effort.
Who should attend:
Contractors, Trade Contractors, Owners, Consultants and allied professionals in the construction industry.
