10-Step Closeout Checklist for Subcontractors

This is the baseline checklist Donny uses on every job to organize closeouts.  It includes assembling closeout documents early, sending out consistent requests to vendors, getting information into a digital form, asking the GC how they want the information, then packaging and sending it their way.  It’s simple, proactive, and effective. You can use Donny’s checklist to improve your own and drive towards a simple, repeatable process.

Closeout Responsibility Matrix for Subcontractors

This is the spreadsheet Donny fills in and updates to keep closeouts on track. It includes the section of the closeout and the responsible party. This is a living doc his team can add to and update statuses through a project, pushing towards an effective closeout. Every project needs a living document like this to align your team internally and prepare for closeout.
