The handover of the construction site from the contractor to the stadium operator happens once the building is complete and should be planned well in advance to ensure it goes smoothly.
As part of the handover package, the contractor will deliver the keys and control fobs for the building together with instructions on how to use and maintain it. Testing and commissioning data for the building’s components and systems will also be provided.
The contractor must also supply as-built drawings, BIM models, and warranties and certificates, as well as copies of statutory approvals and confirmation of compliance
with any associated conditions. The contractor should also provide any necessary licences such as those relating to waste disposal, the storage of fuel and chemicals, and groundwater extraction.
Most construction contracts will include a specified period during which the contractor will be available to rectify and repair any defects identified. Full payment of the contractor is commonly withheld until defects identified during the period are fixed.
