What is a Turnkey System?

A turnkey system is a system which is designed, specified, purchased, installed, and started up by a single company. Turnkey systems are built in the "design-build" style of contracting, as opposed to the traditional "design-bid-build" style of contracting in which the Owner contracts out the design and installation/construction himself while procuring all of the equipment.

Advantages of a Turnkey System


Turnkey systems provide a number of advantages over traditionally-procured systems:

·         Owner has a single point of responsibility for project performance

·         Design/build contractor acts as construction manager, freeing up Owner to manage his business

·         Costs are often lower due to simplified organizational structure

·         Schedule can be compressed since all project activities are coordinated in one company

·         System design is more integrated since a single company handles all designs

·         Owner still has approval authority over major project items
