Successful Start-Up, Commissioning, and Closeout

Lunch is served at 11:30 am.
Class begins at Noon.

This workshop takes a comprehensive approach to project management by focusing on the end goal from the beginning. Proper installation and operation of equipment and systems are crucial for demonstrating compliance with contractual obligations and ensuring final payment. Moreover, successful closeout leaves a lasting impression on the General Contractor and Owner long after the project is completed.
This workshop is designed for Project Managers and Assistant Project Managers who want to gain a thorough understanding of the Start-up, Commissioning, and Closeout process, as well as learn the best management and documentation practices to implement during this process.
In this seminar, you'll learn about the typical documentation requirements and forms involved in the process, including Quality Control, Preliminary Inspections, Pre-Startup Checklists and Forms, Pre-Functional Checklists, Startup, and Test Reports, As-Builts, Valve Tag Lists, Punch Lists, Operation & Maintenance Manuals, Owner Training, and Warranties. Additionally, we'll explore the objectives and benefits of Commissioning a new building and the keys to a successful Commissioning Process and Closeout. You'll also gain insight into key Commissioning activities during Pre-Design Phase, Design Phase, Construction Phase, and Occupancy/Operation Phases, providing you with a comprehensive understanding of the entire process.
Troy will also share valuable lessons he’s learned, equipping you with the knowledge and expertise necessary to manage and document the process effectively. Don't miss out on this opportunity to enhance your project management skills and ensure your projects are a resounding success.

Target Audience: Project Managers with 3 to 7 years of experience, support staff or anyone interested in moving into a project management role or in obtaining fundamental project documentation skills.
