TurnKey monitors and maintains real-time project information and acquisition status. We survey and gauge risks, work with landowners to provide positive assurances and establish positive client relations within the community. We also utilize our GIS and TURN360 imagery service as a value add for performance. Turn360 is a revolutionary 360º radius road video system that allows TurnKey the ability to document and provide immediate access to track haul roads, test sites and crossing locations. TURN360 is an advanced tool excellent for presenting the proposed project line to county engineers, as they can instantly identify road crossings, determine and document conditions before, during and after construction, and monitor any damages or municipal concerns at any time during construction. With our GIS team and adaptable data management systems, Turnkey provides accurate and detailed deliverables that will be a resource to the client for years.
