Final report for construction works
The final report should provide a summary of activities during the construction phase, describing:
- The works that have been completed.
- The variations that have been agreed.
- Claims for loss and expense or extension of time that have been agreed.
- The original contract sum.
- The final account.
- The completion date.
It can also be useful to prepare an end of contract report that provides greater detail about the performance of the contractor and is a record that can be referred to in the future in the event of public scrutiny, legal proceedings or if a judgement is being made about whether to employ the contractor again. See end of contract report for more information.
