by Miller, Benjamin Thomas, M.S., University of Maryland, College Park, 2010, 153; 1482520
Abstract (Summary)

Closeout is a required step in the project completion process. At Gilbane Building Company, one of the top 20 construction firms operating in the United States, there is a requirement that this process be completed within a 90 day period following substantial completion. The general project closeout process is reviewed, and the 90 day requirement’s validity relative to recently completed projects is tested. Statistical analysis is used to create a regression equation that predicts closeout duration based on project metrics, and the validity of this model is analyzed. Finally, qualitative factors that can impact project closeout are studied, and suggestions are made to aid in the efficiency and effectiveness of project closeout.
