While not the most glamorous phase of construction, commissioning and handover plays an important role in building a foundational relationship of trust between a general contractor and their client. A recent report published by FMI examines how levels of trust directly impact project outcomes and financial performance. One of the report’s findings states that “firms with higher trust receive more repeat business, potentially boosting gross margins by millions.”
There is a lot of heavy lifting, as well as many tedious steps that need to be taken in order to close out a project. If performed incorrectly, this critical phase can negatively impact the success of the project and erode the trust between client and general contractor.
Owners rely on the contractor to give them timely and complete information at handover. If construction teams can’t deliver efficient and organized documentation, the likelihood of establishing a good relationships and winning future work is slim.
Whether you are a contractor or owner, a big part of ensuring a smooth commissioning and handover process is properly tracking, installing and managing any construction assets. If done correctly, contractors are not only able to improve the onsite installation process but also able to provide a faster handover and move owners into operations quicker—all while establishing trust!
In this webinar, you’ll learn:
- How to streamline asset and equipment tracking for improved commissioning
- How to gain owners’ trust by increasing the speed to operations
- Why organized asset and equipment tracking is a key value-add for owners
