All construction projects use punch lists to close out construction projects. A punch list is a list of items that need to be completed or resolved before the project can be considered complete and the final bill submitted to the client for payment.
Construction punch lists are a very effective way to make sure that large construction projects are completed in a timely manner. They provide a method for all parties — from General Contractor to the Architect to the Client – to easily understand what needs to be completed on a construction job and by whom. Construction punch list items might include:
- Electrical: Replace temp lighting fixture, Front Hall.
- Plumbing: Install utility sink, Basement.
- Paint: Sand and final coat, interior trim, Dining Room cased opening.
- Tile: Seal grout, Master Bath.
Alpha Software worked with top construction companies to model a best-practice Construction Punch List App, optimized for offline operation, on smartphones and with offline capabilities:
