Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR)

Social Value

John Turner Construction understands the need to maximise social, as well as economic return in all of our activities if we are to optimise the objective of working together for the common good of the communities in which we operate and live. We look to deliver quality, value, customer service and social impact.

To reinforce this commitment and to facilitate a co-ordinated offering, we employ a Social Value Manager and we are members of Social Value UK, an organisation that benchmarks our ‘social value’ proposals.

People and Training

We respect people’s views, provide a safe and healthy working environment and conduct our business with integrity.

The company believes in developing the skills and capabilities of our employees and we are Investors in People accredited.

For many years, we have invested in sustainable apprenticeships and in growing our own staff.


As part of our commitment to act in a socially responsible way, we also proactively consider environmental sustainability. We understand that construction can impact on the environment but with careful management, potential negative impacts can be avoided or minimised.

Our Environmental Management System is independently accredited to ISO 14001 and our Energy Management System is accredited to ISO 50001. We look to go beyond obligatory standards in all areas of our operations, from performance to value and social responsibility.

John Turner Construction has recently completed an exercise in conjunction with Lancaster University and a group of their MBA students, to undertake a consultancy challenge on Waste Minimisation and Mitigation within our business. We have received their recommendations and we are putting them into practice.

Our client’s responses

” John Turner has won a number of tenders at Edge Hill University and has been consistently successful in completing high quality projects, on programme and on budget. “

” I would like to express our sincere thanks and appreciation to your entire team who were responsible for delivering such a successful project. We would especially like to recognise the dedication and commitment your team gave the project which was completed with minimal disruption to our hospital functions. ”

” The project has been a real success and this is due to the professional and well organised manner in which John Turner’s staff conducted themselves. There was excellent communication with a priority for safeguarding the pupils and staff at all times. “

” It is extremely refreshing to know that the enthusiasm, professionalism, dedication and humour is still available in the right proportions to make things happen in the construction industry. What is most pleasing is that at all times, the requirements of the Client and Church of England Pensions Boards as the end-user was paramount. Collectively, we have achieved completion on time, a building within budget and in some areas exceeded the client’s expectations. “

” Just a line to express my thanks and appreciation of your sterling efforts to secure the completion of this project within the agreed programme. I am impressed by both the attitude and approach of your organisation. Thanks once again on behalf of my colleagues and the clinical staff with whom you developed a true spirit of co-operation under difficult circumstances. “
