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 timeliness, communication and teamwork work together to achieve a successful project close out. The topics of: implementing a project closeout process for projects through all phases of a construction project including: O&M requirements, quality, financial issues, occupancy, commissioning, deficiencies, substantial completion, turnover documents and the warranty period will be discussed in detail. Participants will be introduced to the best practices and “tips and tricks” which will expedite and simplify the takeover of a project by its Owner from the Contractor who managed its 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.
