APPA Webinar: Bridging the Gap Between Closeouts and Campus Facilities

University and college campuses today are in a constant state of renewal as they compete for top students, faculty, and industry partnerships. Every college building needs renovating, improving, and updating after several years. Notable campus renovations include Columbia University, Cornell, and Stanford. According to Best Value Schools, the University of Chicago spent almost $1.7 billion on construction and renovation. While construction and renovation are ongoing at campuses, facilities teams are ultimately responsible for building and equipment maintenance and campus safety. Too often, campus facilities teams must do their work without closeout packages from contractors. Lacking details about the buildings they manage could result in guesswork about shut-off locations and other important safety mechanisms. The goal of this webinar is to present solutions and innovative approaches to this construction closeout challenge.

Learning Objectives: In this webinar, you’ll learn about:
• Creating a single source of truth about all construction information, including current drawings, specs, and RFI updates
• Accessing and sharing critical information with all stakeholders in a matter of minutes via mobile devices
• The impact of safety and productivity due to delayed or missing closeout packages on campus facility teams
• The importance of having organized documents during and after construction
