Completions, Turnover and Punchlist Management are critical process in any Construction/Commissioning Project, they ensure an effective Project execution.
Nevertheless, in many projects, these process are still managed using “spreadsheets-trackers” that might turn the process chaotic and exert unnecessary stress on the project team.
Here below I’m presenting a less than 90 sec video-demo that shows how effective and practical is to manage the Project Turnover Dossiers using a customized Database Application (MS Access -SQL -VBA) instead of Spreadsheets.
This demo shows how quick and easy is to:
- To see all the relevant information of the Turnover Package Dossiers.
- To check the review status without using strange coding like code 1, code 2, etc. that might become more confusing for the reviewer’s team.
- To see the review status by discipline, system, contractor, etc. without the hassle of jumping back and forth into scrambled folder structures.
- To go through the review, approved or rejection comments, generate the deficiencies list or approved certificate of the Turnover Package Dossier.
Thanks for your feedback and comments to my previous post-articles, I certainly welcome them.
