Project Close Out - VILT

Multi-day Course:
Location Title: Live, Online, Virtual Instructor Led Training via Adobe Connect
Cancellation Period: 5 Business Days

Only 4 seats available!!

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. In this course you'll learn how to avoid the last 3% of the project becoming 15% of the effort.

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.

Course Content:

  • Pre-Construction Closeout: Internal handover; Principles of organizing early, teamwork and communication; O&M manual development and tracking; Closeout requirements and submissions; Submittals requirements and submissions; Permits
  • Construction Closeout: Substantial Performance requirements both contractually and regulatory
  • Post Construction Closeout: Final Completion requirements both contractually and regulatory
  • Organizational Closeout: Wrapping up and demobilizing from the site
  • Subcontractor Closeout: Financial requirements
  • Financial Closeout: Internal review and lessons learned
