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. Getting a project to substantial performance, and then to total performance, are two of the most difficult milestones in the construction industry to achieve.
This 6-hour session will discuss how the principals of organizing early, teamwork and communication work together to achieve a successful project close out.
Construction Project Close Out is organized into the following phases:
- Pre-Construction Close Out
- Construction Close Out
- Post Construction Close Out
- Organizational Close Out
- Subcontractor Close Out
- 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 checklist 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
- Preconstruction meetings
- Commissioning planning
- QA/QC management
- Substantial completion
- Final completion
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, so that the last 3% of the project is not 15% of the effort.
Important Note: Computer or laptop with webcam and microphone (webcams are mandatory): This course will involve 100% on-screen interaction with your instructor and classmates, reading/viewing on-screen content like slides or videos, and interacting via typing with questions or responses.
