Turnkey Project Delivery
One Team Working Together For the Greatest Result.
When you partner with SCGWest, you receive a cohesive array of services that provide an end-to-end solution for the entire project cycle. From site selection and coordinated delivery of FF&E to the installation and final close-out, we are able to provide a single point of contact to streamline all program elements and assure efficiency and quality.
Our turnkey method of delivery is a collaborative alliance of people, systems, business structures and practices into a process that harnesses the talents and insights of all participants to optimize project results, increase value to the owner, reduce waste, and maximize efficiency through all phases of design, fabrication, and construction and follows the guidelines, regulations and contracts outlined by the AIA (American Institute of Architects).
In a turnkey project, the owner hires a company or team under one contract to deliver the construction project from start to finish. Since the team is responsible for both the design and the construction components, pricing changes are kept to a minimum, and are usually isolated only to those instances where unknown conditions or owner requests necessitate cost increases. This turnkey method provides the ability to deliver a project on a tight schedule, as projects can be split up and delivered in a package approach, where individual components are designed and built as needed to achieve the final completion date. Generally, the owner can establish a firm maximum price of the project early on and has a significant amount of cost control.
This delivery method is typically used for construction projects where the program requirements have been clearly established prior to design and it may also be an appropriate method when schedule is a concern, as it removes the components of the schedule that would typically be consumed by the bidding and procurement process.
Why do we do this?
The construction industry has suffered from a productivity decline since the 1960s while all other non-farm industries have seen large boosts in productivity. The problems in contemporary construction include buildings that are behind schedule and over budget as well as adverse relations among the owner, general contractor, and architect. Using technology advances, a more effective delivery method has been designed to solve these key design, construction, and development problems. The new focus is the final value created for the owner, the finished building. Rather than each participant focusing exclusively on their part of the project without considering the implications on the whole process, the collaborative method brings all participants together early to maximize value for the owner and give a single point of contact. This collaborative approach allows informed decision making early in the project where the most value can be created. The close collaboration eliminates a great deal of waste in the design, and allows data sharing directly between the design and construction team eliminating a large barrier to increased productivity in construction.
Unlike the design–build project delivery method which typically places the contractor in the leading role on a building project, our turnkey model represents a return to the “master builder” concept where the entire building team including the owner, architect, general contractor, building engineers, fabricators, equipment providers and subcontractors work collaboratively throughout the entire process.
SCGWest also has a strategic advantage – SM Tech. This is our proprietary collaboration software streamlines the flow of documentation, communications and workflows ensuring everyone is working from ‘one version of the truth’. Our collaboration software allows users from all locations to keep all communications, documents & drawings, forms and data, amongst other types of electronic file, in one place. Version control is assured, and users are able to view and mark up files online in live time. The technology also enables project confidence and mitigates risk thanks to inbuilt audit trails.
With end to end services offerings and one team working together, the best results are often achieved. Our turnkey project delivery is a delivery system that seeks to align interests, objectives and practices, even in a single business, through a team-based approach. The SCG system is a process where all disciplines in a project work as one team, creating faster delivery times, lower costs, and a more enjoyable process for the entire team – including the owner.
