Delivering construction projects on time and on budget is more than a cliché. You’ll find no loose ends upon project closeout with the Scope team on the job.

The final phase of a construction project is an important part of being a total project partner – we handle the detail of a project right through to closeout and beyond. Effective project management is an essential element of a project at this stage, where enforcing contracts and managing communication and timings becomes complex. Once the main contractor has completed their work and requested a Certificate of Practical Completion from the Engineer to the Contract (ETC), the Scope team and ETC completes a practical completion site inspection. Throughout the project we’ve worked alongside the contractor and subcontractors to collect producer statements and warranties, these important documents are submitted to the ETC for them to issue the Notice and Certificate of Practical Completion. Scope’s quantity surveyors manage the project’s final account and process final claims before managing financial retentions through the defects liability period. The ETC issues the Notice and Certificate of Completion when the defects liability period has expired.
