Summing up experience

Once the project has been handed over to the client it is expedient to sum up the experience gathered. Subsequently, a report is produced and handed over to the company.
The experience collected is an evaluation of the building project in question with respect to the below mentioned issues:

Own organization Internal professional competencies – were they sufficient?
Parties involved in the project How was the cooperation during the course of the project?

  • Client
  • Consultants
  • Supplier
  • Sub-contractors
