The basic punch list process is typically as follows. A punch list is created by the general contractor or project owner. By the end of the project closure, it’s assigned to the project supervisor or architect who checks whether the work is completed and fills in the document, adding fixes to be done, if needed.
A punch list (snag list, punch out list) is a document or set of documents used during the project closing stage. It lists any remaining work that still needs to be completed or has been completed incorrectly and needs further improvement. Its main purpose is to outline construction defects (wrong materials, damaged structures, faulty assembly, incorrect exterior, etc.) and specify what contractual requirements haven’t been met.
The filled punch list is then sent to the contractor and project owner. If any issues, they need to be addressed and fixed by the contractor. Only after the punch list is approved and signed by both sides, the customer makes the payment and the project can be considered officially closed.
The number and type of the punch list fields depend on the particular project. However, there are certain required fields typical of all forms:
Depending on the project, a punch list template may consist of hundreds of pages and require involvement of multiple users at different stages. These users might be miles away from each other, and each will need to have the printed copy of the latest version. On the site, the punch list is often filled under windy weather. The inspector doing the quality control may be wearing PPE gloves which complicates the filling.
All this makes work with paper-based forms inconvenient and low-efficient. Digital punch lists are a more productive alternative to managing quality control documents:
