Case Study: Shook Construction Demystifies Project Closeout
When Matthew Wendel, project manager with Shook Construction, describes the challenge that comes with collecting, evaluating, and compiling turnover documentation for project closeout as a “pain point” on his projects, he echoes a sentiment shared by countless other PMs. Closeout requires cohesive effort by owners, PMs, trade partners, and other stakeholders; it necessitates a huge amount of time and energy which can have significant consequences for owner relationships and revenue if not done perfectly. It’s an enormous job, and it can eat up a PM’s nights and weekends, in addition to normal business hours which keeps teams from their primary task of building. Shook Construction identified a few specific areas that needed the focus of a fresh approach:
- Minimizing the enormous time commitment that a tedious closeout follow-up process requires;
- Relieving the administrative burden of creating slip sheets and assembling binders with closeout documents to present to the owners;
- Providing owners with easily referenced turnover documentation.
