Turnover, or handover, is the process of handing over all building data. Typically, this happens at or after occupancy. However, much of the data to be collected is available before anything is even installed.
Turnover’s purpose is twofold. First, it is an inventory of assets installed in the building during construction and their related data.
Second, it is a transfer of knowledge to the facilities management teams and others so that they can operate the building effectively. When assets are documented with all the information they’ll need for maintenance, they can spend less time digging to find asset data and more time actually fixing assets.
