The close out phase is an essential component of any project, and involves several key capabilities to ensure a smooth and successful completion. This phase typically consists of four parts: claims and dispute management, contract close out, defect close out, and project handover. In this phase, our team works diligently to manage all outstanding issues and ensure that all contractual obligations have been fulfilled, defects have been addressed, and the project is ready for handover to the client.
Claims and Dispute Management
Our dispute resolution specialists are excellent communicators who effectively manage, negotiate and mediate resolutions for any dispute that may arise regarding cost overruns, delays, material quality or design outcomes. In addition to general claim preparation, negotiation and management, we are well versed in managing SOPA claims, delay and disruption claims and adjudication applications.
Contract Close out
Efficient contract closeouts are an essential element of contract management. This process varies in complexity depending on the contract attributes. During closeout we verify all parties involved have fulfilled their obligations, contract administration actions have been completed, disputes have been settled, final payment has been made and all essential documents are retained before closing the contract file.
Defect close out
We perform thorough inspections to identify and list all defects needing to be addressed, as well as manage the remediation works in their entirety, in time for final project sign-off.
We diligently manage all moving parts involved in the handover phase, ensuring a smooth transition & completion for the client.
