French term or phrase: clef sur porte
project
Philippe LACKMAN
turnkey
Explanation:
Si on entend "projet clef en main", la traduction est "turnkey project".

a turnkey project = a project that is ready for immediate implementation, that is ready to be immediately delivered to the end-user (Collins)

turnkey project projet clés en main n. m.

Variante(s) orthographique(s).
projet clefs en main n. m.



Déf. :
Projet dans lequel un mandataire s'engage à assurer la totalité de la réalisation d'un ouvrage jusqu'à sa mise en service.


Note :
Le terme « marché clés en main », qui est parfois utilisé pour désigner un contrat conclu dans le cadre d'un projet clés en main, est à éviter. « Clés en main » ne fait référence ni au mode de passation de marché ni au mode de fixation du prix du contrat.

Locked up stage


Explanation:
If you mean building a house to "the locked up stage" and the rest of the furnishings are left for the buyer to do?
A turnkey project is usually used in an industrial context and means that the project is ready to operate: just like a car.
I misunderstood on the first reading
