You might think your construction project is over once the ribbon is cut and the building is complete, but did you know there’s another phase called post-construction? Find out everything you need to know about the post-construction building phase for your commercial project.

What Is The Post-Construction Phase?

Post-construction can also consist of contract administration processes and the completion of any remaining work, including paperwork and financial statements.

The Post-Construction Phase Protects Your Business

If any situations come up after the building is complete, the post-construction phase is there to protect your investment. Good commercial construction managers like Kalleward Group know that the work isn’t complete once the ribbon is cut and your doors open.

Post-Construction Begins Near The End Of The Building Phase

At Kalleward Group, we’ll work with you closely to prepare you for the end of your commercial building construction phase. We’ll provide you with the proper tools and information you need to help you manage your facility going forward.

Although it varies by project, post-construction typically begins before the building is done. Many times, our clients are prepped for the post-construction phase before construction even starts. Proper preparation is key to any project’s success, and at Kalleward Group, we make an effort to help you understand what to expect through this phase early on in the process.

Post-Construction Checklist

We’ll provide you with a post-construction checklist for you to evaluate after work is finished. Usually, you’re able to make changes as needed as construction progresses, and you can feel confident about knowing the ins and outs of your commercial building once construction is complete. At Kalleward Group, we provide the best design and build solution for your project, and that includes post-construction.

Documents And Paperwork

Another big part of the post-construction phase is documents and paperwork. We’ll provide documents that state construction has reached its completion.

At the Kalleward Group, we make an effort to make sure none of our commercial clients are left in the dark about any phase of the project, including post-construction.

One of our architects typically issues a certificate of substantial completion once the building has been inspected and deemed finished.


At Kalleward Group, we strive to make sure our clients understand every aspect of how their new commercial building works so you can safely use your new building and all of its many features. We’ll also check in with you from time to time to make sure everything is holding up as it should and examine any issues that may need to be addressed.
