What is Project Closeout?
Project Closeout in the construction industry refers to the final phase of a construction project lifecycle. It involves delivering the finished project to the client, settling all lined up financial matters, disposing project documents, and reflecting on what was learned during the project. A well-managed Project Closeout includes evaluating performance, capturing lessons learned for future projects, and ensuring the client is satisfied with the delivered work. As part of the process, Project Closeout usually includes a punch list, where minor repairs or modifications may need to be addressed even after the construction project has been generally completed. This ensures a high level of workmanship and customer satisfaction.
