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. The term “punch list” comes from the old school process of punching holes in a paper document in the margin adjacent to the task to be completed. Typically, punch lists are organized by category, like electrical, plumbing, cabinetry, etc. Punch list items might include:
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. The punch list is normally agreed upon by the General Contractor, Architect and Homeowner after a project walk through. The walk through may also include some of the subcontractors. Many contracts will include a reference to the punch list and a percentage of money, (2% to 10% of the total contract cost) is typically retained until the punch list is completed. The project punch list is a very important part of any large project, and using mobile devices to run punch list apps could be a major time-saving and money-saving approach for your construction company.
