Understanding how to develop and manage an effective close-out strategy can help ensure that maximum value is maintained throughout the life of your new facility today and beyond. While early inclusion and collaboration during the planning phase has gained momentum, there is still a potentially costly misstep in the turnover and acceptance of the new facility. Program managers, designers and project team members often focus on first costs when planning a new facility. Long-term and maintenance costs impacts are often missed or not initially considered. The development and management of a warranty evaluation, operation and maintenance review and close-out strategy can be critically important to long-term costs, leveraging limited resources and longevity of the facility.

Learning Outcomes
  • Early evaluation process of product selection and warranties
  • Operations & maintenance requirements and long-term cost assessment
  • A different approach to close-out documentation and how to make it work for you
  • Overall best practices for close-out today and growth in the future
