In a previous blog, we examined 3 essential types of telecom construction services and how they can be applied to provide the right kind of telecom solution in the field.  This involved broadband, wireless, fiber optic or infrastructure upgrades.

One type involved turn-key construction.  While many within the telecom industry are aware of these terms, we understand they can be a bit confusing to those observing a company like BDC Group from the outside.


So what exactly is turn-key and how does it apply to telecommunications?  Let's first explore the basic definition.

What is Turn-key?

Turn-key (or turnkey) is defined as a type of project that is constructed so that it can be sold to any buyer as a completed product. (1)


By using the term, it refers to something (product or service) that is ready for immediate use.  This in particular applies to the telecom industry when trying to find a company that is both willing and able to complete specific projects on time with specific requirements.

In addition to defining the basic term, turn-key construction is also another aspect of the industry.  Defined as a type of construction contract, it involves a construction firm being obligated to complete a project based on prespecified criteria.  These types of contracts can help reduce the risk to the buyer and provide an incentive for the company to stay within budget.
