Is there a (free) template or guide to gather lessons learned for a construction project?

Generally, writing lessons learned for a construction project is the same as capturing lesson learned for any project (see http://projectmanagementquestions.com/2239/how-to-capture-lessons-learned ), but with focus on the following areas:

- Quality: Since quality is always a challenge in construction projects, we must thoroughly discuss all the issues we faced regarding the quality of work, and include "what was done correctly" and "what was done wrong" and "what should have been done" in our lessons learned.

- Project location: Was the project chosen at a good location? Was there a better location? Were we familiar with the local standards?

- Cost estimates: Were cost estimates accurate? How could have we done them better?

- Work contracting: Were the contractors we worked with any good? Should have we chosen other ones? Should we choose the same contractors for our next project?

- Schedule:  Were resources properly assigned and were work estimates based somehow accurate?

- Project management: Was project management properly applied? Was it efficient? Was there anything wrong with the reporting/communication?
