What Is Turnkey Contract Construction?

A Turnkey Contract is basically the one which is constructed for the purpose of being sold to a buyer after being absolutely complete. A construction firm is under the obligation to finish the project in accordance with the pre specified guidelines. All the terms and conditions are fixed much in advance. An amount is decided upon and the time duration of the contract is also specified along with being duly signed. A skilled contractor takes the responsibility to get the construction project complete and only hand over the same to the client when it's fully operational and there's only one task left - Turn the key as if it was all set in a motion! The property is then assumed to be ready for initiating the movement.

How Does It Go About?

A turnkey property is the one that's fully renovated and the investor can purchase the same to immediately rent or sell it out. Where a turnkey contract is concerned, a developer is hired for the project. He/ she is the one responsible for finishing the design. And all of it will be done without the suggestions or opinions of any buyer. However, if the property is being constructed keeping in mind a specific client, the builder can consult about the finishes of the property much in advance and without any intervention, initiate the process. Builder or the contractor is very much different from who the actual owner is. After all the details are being taken care of and the construction is fully operational, he/ she turns over the final project to the new owner. Such contracts are commonly used in a single building project or even the large-scale developments.

Things To Remember

A full turnkey construction contract is also called as Engineering, Procurement, and Construction (EPC). The projects are implemented with utmost efficiency, minimal intervention, an absolute guarantee. Each of the responsibility is centralized. There are compensations allowed in case of delays (but delays rarely happen). Performace too is taken care of. Contractor gets full control over the site and can access each of the components of the property. However, the mandatory licenses and permits are to be obtained. The maintenance and operational manuals are to be provided. And at the end of it all, under a Turnkey contract construction, greater details are to be regulated. Between-the-party hassles are to be avoided as far as possible. Major clauses of the turnkey contracts are as follows: Project design, site construction, the time duration for project completion, prices along with payment, performances, credibility and legal governance.

In Conclusion ...
A turnkey construction contract is an agreement that must be based on the balance of obligations as well as rights between the contractor or the construction company and the client. It must maintain a balance of the risk allocations. A concise and clear structure is facilitated so as to incorporate a better administration. And finally, it must be well suited to the legalities of the nation as well as the state.
