The punch process of construction is an important task that a construction project team is faced with before a project reaches final completion. A punch list documents and tracks items that need to be corrected, repaired, or are incomplete. If not closely managed, open punch items can drag out the completion of a project, and is often seen as a tedious task for project engineers. The industry has not seen much change as to how this process is conducted until recent advancements in construction software. This paper will take a deeper look into the benefits seen from utilizing Procore’s location-based quick response (QR) codes to manage punch lists. Through interviews with employees of a well-established general contractor, it is evident that using QR codes can greatly benefit all key players involved in a construction project. Using QR codes to create punch lists enhances efficiency by streamlining data communication onto one platform that can be accessed by all of the players involved. It allows for general contractors to get ahead on pre-punch items, makes the punch walk more efficient, and allows for that information to be easily documented and accessed by subcontractors who will be completing the work.
