What Is A Warehouse Turnkey Project?

The term turnkey means that a finished product or project is ready for the customer to turn the key and go – from blueprints to carpets and finishings, the supplier manages the full scope of the project.

It’s a well-known term in construction but not one that necessarily guarantees high standards of service and quality. However, at Nene, this is a service we are passionate about.

After agreeing on a contract of times, dates, budgets, and requirements, we comprehensively manage every project phase, from inception to final delivery. We are not only responsible for ensuring the delivery of our warehouse racking projects and systems but everything else in between, ensuring client service excellence and outstanding quality products throughout.

What does a Nene Warehouse Turnkey project involve?

There isn’t a one-size-fits-all approach to turnkey projects, at least there shouldn’t be, as every client is different. Instead, a strong focus must be placed on the foundations and preparation work to set the tone for the rest of the build. What works for a global, high density, large-item warehouse won’t necessarily work for a smaller, slower pick scenario, for example.

With much to consider, we look at the different stages and factors involved in a warehouse turnkey project.

Things to consider before you start planning your warehouse layout

Warehouse design and reconfiguration

We all want more space, and while it is undoubtedly vital, it is no good creating extra space without optimising it to work best for your needs. ​​

When we look at client requirements, we consider everything from staff numbers to goods size, pick frequency and beyond to get a complete picture of the best configuration for their operations. So we not only maximise storage capacity, but we also optimise the space in doing so, using areas such as single or multi-tier mezzanine flooring, dividers, and mixed racking styles to support different requirements.

This means making it efficient to manage and support quicker pick times, product protection, and making sure it can handle the growing pressures warehouses are coming under to help increase the throughput of sales and grow with the business.

Our warehouse design and reconfiguration services at Nene look not only at our clients’ immediate needs, but also future efficiency and how to get the best from the equipment.

This means that you can guarantee safety and quality from the outset and also put in measures to safeguard your equipment in future, such as our maintenance programmes and racking protection products.

Office Design & layout

While the warehouse racking space naturally is the primary concern, it can’t be properly functional without the office space working in harmony with it. If paperwork and documentation have to come from outside or a at least a significant distance away, it can upset the workflow and impact the racking and pick.

Office layout design, we believe, is essential to the overall success of the warehouse functionality. House on the ground floor or utilise vertical space with mezzanine flooring and partitions, there are many ways to configure a fully operational and comfortable office for those working in it.

In true turnkey style, we can manage all fitting and fixtures down to decor and furniture, meaning when clients have the keys, they can get going straight away.
