 Learn proven methods to implement an Effective and Successful project closeout. Project close-out is the last phase in the construction process, but arguably one of the most important. Closing out projects has become a real challenge for many contractors. However, it remains a critical aspect of the construction process to ensure on-time and proper payment. Retainer payment often hinges on successful closeout – which generally amounts to most, if not all of the job’s profit. This class will explore effective ways to create and implement a logical process that will promote a complete close out. In this class, our instruction who has worked many years as an executive with an ENR top General Contractor, will take a deep dive into the following learning objects:

  • Understanding project closeout – start to finish.
  • Maximizing profit by implementing proper close-out procedures
  • Forecasting & early warnings
  • Limiting exposure to claims and reputation damage.
  • Punch lists
