 The locations are geographically diverse so I cannot be on site for
each cut. I need to have some form of project guideline to manage the
process and it falls to me to liaise with the site contact, supplier
and technicians as well as corp. HQ to ensure smooth transition of

alarm, DSL and HVAC lines are great items I had missed in my
checklist.  Someone out there must have a Microsoft Project template
that relates to this type of project management. At least that's my
