BUILDING ENERGY - Spring 2018 - 29

continued outsourcing or temporary support so
in-house technicians can shadow service providers
during first year of occupancy.
Each client will have different facility
management needs but for all projects valuable
information is created during construction that
can support operations and maintenance. By
summarizing and simplifying this information,
making it available to the client where it is needed in
an easy-to-use format and making sure deliverables
are complete and of high quality, contractors can
prepare clients for long term facilities management
success. Not only will this be good for the
environment and building occupants, but it will
reduce warranty calls and increase the likelihood
of repeat business. By improving the project
closeout process and starting with the end in mind,

contractors will provide more value to their clients
and deliver higher performing buildings.
