A kick-off, or kick-off meeting, for a residential construction project, marks the official start of the project and typically involves a meeting between all involved parties, including the property owner or client, contractors, subcontractors, architects, designers, and engineers. During this meeting, roles and responsibilities are outlined and discussed as well as timelines for completion and expectations. The kick-off also serves to ensure that everyone involved is on the same page with regard to project goals and objectives, so that the construction process can move forward smoothly. After the initial kick-off meeting has been held, progress meetings may be held periodically throughout the duration of the project. These meetings are used to review any issues that have arisen since the last meeting, as well as provide updates on the project’s progress.
