Information to include in the construction work order

There are Main components to include on a construction work order:


Contact information

Attach contact information about who the client can contact for queries or updates. Contact information of the project manager, site engineer, and client service department, depending on your organizational structure.  In this section, you can also include billing information and company details such as your address and legal business name.


Assignment information

Adding a unique work order number and priority to each project. This helps us when filing and reviewing work orders, especially when you have multiple projects in progress.


Project Closure Date/Material Arrival Date

There are many important dates to include in the construction work schedule. For most projects, you can add estimated start and end dates for a project. You can also include certain milestones, such as the expected date of completion of certain parts of the project or the expected date of arrival of materials.

So we can negotiate dates if we expect a faster turnaround on certain projects, such as emergency repairs.




Service description

A service description covers the overall scope of a project. This includes the expected result of a project, along with the responsible teams. For automated work orders such as maintenance, this field may already contain template information. Manual work orders may require details of the services and labor you provide. Consider including the cost of labor in the service description or in its own section.

Steelwork, Shuttering Work, Concrete Work, Staircase work, Brickwork plastering work, Window grill fixing, each bedroom & kitchen one Cub-board and lot & kitchen Platform in kitchen, 4.5" Parapet wall up to 3'6" height, Basement Height up to 3'height. (Asper given Drawing)

Materials Description

A materials description includes what materials and tools you may need to complete a project. Who’s going to supply it, whether it's a client or a service provider.  Consider the price and quantity here so clients understand how much they can afford to pay for the job. This section may include additional charges, such as taxes or shipping costs, for which the customer is responsible.



If the work order is a contract between a construction company and its client, the signature field shows that both parties agree to the terms listed in the work order. This includes agreeing on both the scope and cost of the project. Include a signature line and date for you and the client so you can both file the record and refer to it as needed.
