There are several reasons that businesses choose to go with a turnkey project option as opposed to handling their business developments internally. Regardless of the reasoning, there are some things that you should know, especially if this is your first time using this project option. Here are the things that you should expect from a turnkey project and from turnkey project management during the process and immediately following the completion of the project:
The first thing you can expect is a consultation discussion. This is a full panel discussion that will bring in your project managers and your main employees related to the turnkey project. At this time you will discuss what you want as a vision for the turnkey, your budgeting, and any guidelines that you have for the project. This is also the time when you will discuss who to contact in case there are questions or issues, who has the approval to make choices affecting the project, and when or how your employees will be transitioned to the turnkey once it is completed. There may be more than one discussion of this kind before the project begins. You should also expect at least one update consultation during the course of the project.
When you first consider using a turnkey project options, you may be surprised to find that you are not limited to completely new designs and building plans. In fact, in most cases, you may be offered the option of using existing resources to keep costs low. For example, your company may have an older building or warehouse that can be used, even if you do not consider it viable for the project. The turnkey manager can determine if the building is viable and decide if they can use it for your project. This can not only save obvious real estate finances, but it can also save time on the end date for the project. Other existing resources may be discussed as well in order to help speed the project or determine if options are even open to you for your vision of the end project.
Marketing and Training
You may not be thinking about marketing and training when you first look at the turnkey option. In fact, there is a misconception that this option deals only with the construction of the expanded or new business. The truth is a turnkey is just that. It deals with everything so that you end up with the marketing for the business and the training completed and ready to go. You can make changes to this as you see fit or simply work to implement your current workforce into the finished project.
These are just a few things to consider about expectations of using a turnkey project option for your business. If you are ready to move forward, consider a consultation to discuss options.
