As part of “The WCP Process,” the Job Close phase holds a pivotal role in ensuring the successful completion of a restoration project. This phase encompasses final inspections and deficiencies, customer reveals, and demobilization. Also, the issuing of important documents like completion certificates, statutory declarations, warranty letters, and maintenance manuals is handled during a job close. In this blog post, we will explore each of these key elements and their significance in achieving a successful project closure.
The WCP Process represents a commitment to delivering excellence in every aspect of a building renewal project. From quote requests to job closeouts, WCP employs a strategic approach focusing on service and quality, and the “Job Close” phase is no exception. Let’s take a closer look:
While inspections happen throughout a project, attention to detail ramps up as the job nears completion. Thorough inspections are conducted by our Crew Leads and then by our Project Managers to ensure the project aligns with predefined quality standards and specifications. Deficiencies and areas of attention are noted and rectified. Once our team is satisfied with the project we involve key stakeholders like consultants or engineers to guarantee that the work meets their expectations and project objectives.
Once the inspection process is complete, we invite our customers to the project reveal. In this stage, we walk the customer through the project, “revealing” the building renewal. For the reveal, all stakeholders must be involved for efficiency and alignment. Open communication is encouraged through the reveal, we answer questions and address any concerns in a timely fashion. The goal is to deliver a finished product that aligns with the client’s vision.
Efficient demobilization is a hallmark of the Job Close process. At demobilization equipment like scaffolding, swing stage, boom lifts, site trailers, hoarding, and materials are removed in a timely and safe manner. After demobilizing a final site clean-up is conducted by the crew.
Completion Certificates and Warranty Letters
Once the project is signed off by all stakeholders and declared complete. WCP issues completion certificates which include imperative warranty, material, and supplier information that are meant to be kept as a record by the owners for future reference. WCO also archive these records to ensure they can be easily accessed in the event the customers loses track of their copies.
Compliance is a priority in “The WCP Process.” At job close, we can issue copies of proposals and contracts, statements of accounts, statutory declarations, certificates of completion, work safe clearance letters, certificates of insurance, and other documents requested by the owners at job close.
For larger projects, we issue a maintenance manual which offers best practices for maintaining the building to ensure the longest possible lifespan of the building renewal project. In essence, when followed, this manual ensures that owners get the most value from the project. In this manual, we offer practical tips and methods for maintaining concrete, stucco, wood, and metal substrates
Step 7 of “The WCP Process”, the job close phase, defines clear criteria for project completion. Most importantly, stakeholders are involved throughout the process ensuring project objectives are met. The involvement of decision-makers and stakeholders is vital for ensuring efficiency, quality assurance, compliance, and project continuity.
