- Validate discovered conditions to ensure they are handled properly (e.g., unknown hidden damage, asbestos, lead paint, etc.)
- Respond to after-hours construction related emergencies
- At the turnover stage, ensure that new construction has been properly commissioned and maintenance staff have been trained
