Punch lists are lists of unfinished or substandard work compiled by the superintendent while “walking” the jobsite.

These lists can be notes written on scratch pads using a rigid clip-board…or formal company checklist used during the successive phases of the construction.

By examining punch lists for all of a company’s projects, any practices or materials causing problems on several projects can be identified…with the aim of ultimately reducing each problem to a non-repeating, historical issue relegated to the past.
