What are turn-key operations?
In comparison to build-to-order construction, where contractors complete a project according to the exact parameters of a client’s designs, turn-key operations are projects created by contractors to be sold to any client.
Turn-key operations are standardized projects that are applicable to a wide variety of different projects, and require little consideration on the part of the client. In the eyes of the client, turn-key projects are practically ready-made. Because of the ease associated with turn-key projects, it’s easy to think that turn-key is always the way to go.
Things to consider with turn-key operations
At Northgate Industries Ltd., we offer our clients a variety of new and used modular buildings that fit parameters and design standards that we feel are applicable to a variety of different client needs. Since we also understand that not every client looks for standardization with their designs, we always offer to work with our clients on custom-designed projects that are built according to their own parameters.
The most important thing to consider before engaging in a turn-key project is the fact that, by definition, turn-key refers to designs that are almost entirely lacking in the option of customization.
Turn-key designs are:
- Ready-made, and cannot be customized.
- There is no option for creativity.
- There is almost no opportunity to alter a design in a specific way.
We design our modular buildings according to strict building codes that are heavily restricted, to ensure user safety and security. Changing one part of a turn-key design means that we need to reconsider every part of the overall structure. In such cases, it might be more cost effective for a client to provide us with custom designs in order to also maximize efficiency.
