Turnover of a project occurs after the completion of construction, and the resolution of the majority of punch list and commissioning issues. Ideally, all of these issues will be resolved as conditions of turning over space to the user group, but some issues related to heating or cooling may not be resolved due to the season when the project completes; some punch list issues may linger if they involve the replacement of items with long lead times. Once the user group begins significant operations in the completed space, the project will be considered to have been turned over to the user group and to the Operations and Maintenance team.
The CPD project manager will convene a Turnover group composed of users, technical group representatives, and the general contractor or construction manager. This group will meet frequently until all issues are resolved.
During turnover, in addition to completing the resolution of outstanding project issues, the project manager will begin assembling project closeout documentation, including budget information.
The user group will complete move‐in to their space during turnover. Furniture installation and punch list will be completed. ITS and DSS will complete the installation and activation of their systems.
