What is Turnkey?

Turnkey is a building solution that drastically simplifies things for the owner of the project. With this type of project, the team is given the responsibility from designing to construction of the Building or facility. The owner must only wait for the team to get the job done, and then when the project is finished, the client is able to “turn the key” and start using the new building or facility.

For example, when you buy a home and give it to a single person to design and construct.

The team is responsible for all aspects of the project, from the initial design phase to the final handover. This includes the selection of equipment and materials, construction and installation, testing and commissioning, and training of the client’s personnel. The team takes full responsibility for the project’s success and must ensure that it meets all specifications and requirements outlined in the contract.

What are the three primary components?

  • Design: The team is responsible for preparing the design of the building or facility, which eliminates the need for the future owner to hire architects and designers independently.
  • Supply Procurement: Instead of the project owner or main team locating and purchasing supplies, the team handles this through its own network of suppliers. Depending on the type of turnkey contract, the future owner may be able to specify suppliers and materials.
  • Construction: The team handles every aspect of construction, from start to finish. This way, the owner doesn’t need to spend time searching for subcontractors and hiring them, nor do they have to take part in the construction itself until it is completed. Once the building construction is done, the keys are handed over to the new owner and he can start using the building.
