How to motivate contractors to complete the project

Upon substantial completion of a construction project, the owner, architect, and contractor perform a walk-through inspection to make sure all work has been completed and with no visible defects. During the process, a punch list, or list of deficiencies, is prepared to document issues contractors are to address to complete the project. Since they normally have been paid nearly the total contract amount before the walk-through is performed, contractors seldom see a financial incentive to complete the work.

In this issue of Concrete Terms, learn how to motivate your contractor to complete the project.
