This course is set up in two 3-hour, live, instructor-led online training sessions. There is no opportunity to re-schedule or request a partial refund if a student cannot attend both sessions. Please plan to be fully engaged in the class and clear your work schedule just as you would for an in-class course.
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 course will discuss how the principles 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, checklists, and how-to's, participants will learn all the steps in setting up a project to close it out successfully.
Topics discussed will include:
O&M manual development and tracking
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.
This session is designed to be an interactive experience, similar to our in-person courses. Participants should expect to interact with the instructor and other participants. Computers or laptops with a microphone and headphones 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.
Participants will receive an email with instructions on downloading and installing the program and the participant manual a few days before the session. The join links for the workshop will be sent to all participants 30 minutes before the scheduled start time.
If you have not received the first email with the download instructions and manual by the day before the session, please email email@example.com and a training team member will assist you.

Internet connection- For best results, you will want to ensure you have an internet connection with an upload/download speed of 3-5 Mbps. You can test your internet speed here. The minimum recommended speed is 1.5 Mbps, but anything below 3 Mbps may result in loss of quality or buffering. Ideally hardwired connection versus wireless for stability - connect your computer directly to your router using an ethernet cable, rather than using your home wi-fi.
