Handover and Transition Case Study


Major infrastructure projects in an operational environment face obvious challenges with the complex logistics and planning required for safe construction and delivery whilst keeping the infrastructure running.

There are also challenges towards the end of the project where the maintainer waits expectantly for the new infrastructure to be taken into their stewardship. They expect assets to be free of quality issues and residual defects, with a demonstrable measure of reliability and together with the technical information required for their teams to satisfactorily undertake maintenance.
