What is the difference between "Turnover" and "Completions Management"?
Updated: Sep 4, 2021
First a few definitions:
The process of leading the work of a team to achieve all project goals within the given constraints (like Schedule and budget)
Project Turnover Management
The official process of handing over a well defined and documented scope of work from Construction (EPCM Contractor) to Commissioning (Client's Operations Team)
Project Completions Management
The process of Tracking, organising and recording of the state of “completeness” to a pre-defined criteria set by clients and projects in order to meet regulations and standards.
The process of assuring that all systems and components of a building or industrial plant are designed, installed, tested, and ready for operation, according to the operational requirements of the owner or final client. (Mostly done or organised by the Client)
Now, what was the difference again?
Most of the time Turnover and Completions Management are done by the same department.
"Turnover" documents the official handover to the Client.
-> MC (Mechanical Completion)
This is done on a PROJECT MANAGEMENT level.
"Completions Management" assures that all the criteria regarding design, testing and Quality are met to make sure the client can sign for MC and start safely with Commissioning.
-> Ready for Commissioning
This is done on a OPERATIONAL level.
