In the construction industry, the term 'handover' typically refers to:
- Handover of the site to the contractor at commencement of the works.
- The handover of the completed works to the client. This is sometimes referred to as handover and close out.
NB in relation to ecological issues, handover refers to any point in the life cycle of a site or development where ecological or landscape-related responsibilities are passed from one organisation, group or individual to another. This will include information or documentation deemed to be crucial to the successful attainment of ecological aims and objectives. Handover strategies should be designed to support effective communication, monitoring and transition throughout the project's life cycle.
