Ster, John William
MetadataShow full item record
Increasing construction costs for military construction and family housing projects are severely testing the conventional method of contracting. The turnkey contractual method of design-build has been previously used in the process industries and most recently for DOD family housing construction. This thesis reviews the construction procurement inter-relationships including the architect-engineer, constructor and the contractual documents . The turnkey concept as used by the private and public sectors is explored, the military services approach is reviewed and the turnkey concept evaluated. Trends in the contractual methods of the private and public sector are discussed and the turnkey method is presented as a concept that has not been fully evaluated nor previously permitted to be used extensively within the Department of Defense beyond the limits of family housing construction.
