“May I take this opportunity to thank you for delivering us a fantastic Academy Education Centre. I couldn’t be happier and Andy Townsend was fantastic right through the build, always willing to show me (and my staff) around the place as it went from a ‘shed’ to what it has now become. Our Academy boys (and staff) are incredibly lucky to have such a wonderful learning environment. Thanks again.”

“On behalf of Everton Football Club, could I take the opportunity to say thank you to John Turner Construction Group for delivering a Bespoke Facility that not only captures a look and feel of Best in Class facility but delivers on the club’s commitment to take into consideration the greenbelt surroundings that the original facility was built on. The attention to detail, quality of workmanship and the willingness to work in partnership with the Club at every stage on the construction enabled the project to be a seamless and transparent build which was completed ahead of schedule.”

“With regards to the recently completed building contracts at University Hospital Aintree Liverpool, I would like to express our sincere thanks and appreciation to your entire team who were responsible for delivering such successful projects. We would especially like to recognise the dedication and commitment your Site Manager gave. Your team worked closely with all our associated hospital departments, often late into the evening and night to ensure the projects were completed with minimal disruption to our hospital functions. The wards have received very positive comments and feedback from our Executive Team, Matrons, Ward Staff, visitors and most importantly our patients, who are benefitting from the excellent facilities we are now able to offer them on these wards.”

“The 50 week project was handed over to the client six weeks earlier than the anticipated completion date. I would like to offer on behalf of the college, our sincere thanks to John Turner for the exceptional efforts and contributions throughout the entire Stockbridge Centre new build and refurbishment works. The project has been an extremely challenging build and your company has provided first class service, support and an exceptional level of understanding around the colleges requirements, all of which have resulted in the college being handed the centre on time ready for our staff and learners to complete the full relocation from our existing home into new excellent facilities. I personally would like to thank the two Project Site Managers, Dave Hampton and Paul Buck, for their professionalism throughout this project as they have met their fair share of challenges along the way and have, during the entire programme, remained focused on achieving the colleges construction requirements and the two gentlemen are a credit to your company. I am extremely pleased to say that from the initial bid stage for the contract through to the current final stages of the programme John Turners have not relented on their commitment to the college and I would have no hesitation in engaging the services of your company or recommending you to any other organisation.”

“I spent over half an hour exploring each and every part of the Student Hub marvelling at its size and airiness and furthermore taking in the transformation of Hale Hall. In fact, I actually had a short meeting in the Hub prior to the Governors! Unanimously the governors have asked me to write to you to express formally our appreciation for all the hard work and dedication by the entire team for delivering such a superb addition to Edge Hill’s estate in such a short time and within budget acknowledging that many of the crucial decisions, particularly the ‘joining up’ of new and old were made ‘on the hoof’. In comparison, the education and health buildings must have been a ‘doddle’ and a residential unit or two could no doubt now be constructed in your sleep!! Seriously, you have done a magnificent job and you have every reason to be immensely proud of your latest achievement at Edge Hill. Thank you very much.”
Michael Pinfold, Chair of the Governing Body
Edge Hill University

“Turner’s took on the project and improved the site boundaries to protect the children and cracked on with the construction works to get the project finished to a particularly tight schedule. “They’ve done a really good job”, was heard many times this afternoon as adults appreciated the work that had taken place after many had been sceptical about it being ready, even for September. Everyone is really pleased with the extension and thank Turners for their commitment to turning out a quality build. Your Site Manager was instrumental to the success of the project. He kept me informed, he was patient and had a calm approach. I appreciated his focus on producing a high quality product.”
John Ross, Headteacher, Great Wood Primary School, Morecambe
Lancashire County Council

“I’m absolutely delighted with the Liverpool Guild of Students refurbishment project. I set out to deliver a project that simply blew the socks off the client and you certainly achieved that. My thanks go out to each and every one of you … every single one, polite, courteous, diligent, conscientious and hard working. I found your team an absolute pleasure to work with, each and every challenge met with well thought out responses and good humour. Think we’ve collectively redefined the meaning of a collaborative effort! Well done and congratulations on a great project.”
Andy Murphy, Project Manager
University of Liverpool

“I would like to thank you and your colleagues for all your assistance in undertaking a very worthwhile and, on the whole, enjoyable project at Trumacar Primary School, Heysham. It was greatly appreciated that John Turner had worked very well indeed to co-ordinate with their supply side partners and deliver the project on a very tight site with sub-optimal access with minimal disruption to the school. A lot of this was down to the good day-to-day co-ordination and communication and it is rare that it occurs as it did here. This scheme really represents what can be done with the partnering approach and ethos. LCC and the school specifically have really benefited on this project – in terms of the quantity and quality of the accommodation delivered. Several potentially contentious issues were resolved simply, elegantly and cleanly with no disruption or conflict allowing the project to progress smoothly meeting time and budget parameters.”
Andrew Howorth, Principal Architect
Lancashire County Council

“Well done to you and the lads. It’s nice to receive recognition for all your hard work. May I also take this opportunity to thank you and your team personally for your hard work and support on completing the volume of work we had to carry out before the end of the financial year.”
Tom Dobson, Senior Estates Officer
Royal Bolton Hospital

“Just a quick email to say thanks so much for spending the time this afternoon to meet and speak to our A2 Business students. Your input was really helpful to them and it was very interesting to see how theory actually works in practice. The students all enjoyed themselves and we really appreciate your time.”

“Thank you for organising the Building Site Safety Talk which was attended by all the pupils and staff. It was particularly relevant to our pupils and I was very pleased that the content and delivery of the message was accessible for all the primary age groups who attended, 3-11 years. Despite the large group size of 358, the children were very attentive and have continued the discussions with their teachers in the classroom. I am very pleased with the response of the whole school community to the complex circumstances of the current building programme and I feel it is partly due to the continued care and consideration with which you are approaching the project.”
Marilyn Downs, Head of Bollin School
Bollin School, Bowdon

“I was very happy with the level of service from John Turner Construction who are very client focused and were keen to ensure all College aims and objectives in relation to the refurbishment were achieved. Excellent level of work and commitment from the Site Manager and I would have no issue with working with John Turner again or recommending the company to others.”

“The building is even more amazing than we could ever have dreamed of and the facilities are truly overwhelming. When work started on the project 16 months ago this day seemed like a distant dream so it has been lovely to see everything come together finally.”

“This was an excellent contract for the Association, the project was delivered on time by a non-confrontational company. We had the benefit of good communications, compliance of specification and Health and Safety. The Contractor always had adequate resources which was the main reason why the project was delivered on time. John Turner are worth considering for inclusion on any Select List of Tenderers. We will not hesitate to include them on any future Associations Invitations To Tender.”
John Chapman, Head of Estates
NWRFCA

“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. We are presently constructing a new student hub with John Turner operating as the principal contractor. I am confident of a successful completion again for this September with their support and commitment.”
Dave Oldham, Director of Capital Developments
Edge Hill University

“John Turner has maintained the commitment to see the project at Bollin School through to its completion and a project like this needs good management to keep it on track and disruption for the neighbours to a minimum. I thank Graham Woodridge, Project Manager of John Turner for everything he has done in achieving this and I am sure that you will all agree the efforts have been well rewarded with this building.”
Keith Marchant, Chair of Governors
Bollin School

“John Turner has been working with the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine since December 2008, throughout the work has been completed to budget and to a very high standard. Work is always well planned / co-ordinated and it has been noted by staff at LSTM that John Turner Site Managers go out of their way to get to know their “internal clients”; this has certainly helped communications in terms of issues with access, safe working practices, noisy work etc; – without causing a fuss. As new works emerge John Turner continued to demonstrate good value.”
Daniel Bennett, Operational Services Manager
Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine

“On behalf of the University of Liverpool, I would like to thank you and your team for your involvement on the recently completed refurbishments scheme at Leahurst Equine Hospital. The project has been managed in a very professional way with little variance to the programme despite asbestos being uncovered on more than two occasions. I would appreciate it if you could pass on my appreciation to Rob Bolton who diligently progressed the works to a quality finished scheme at handover. Look forward to working with you all again.”
Stephen Corran, Design Group Manager
University of Liverpool

“Just to say, once again, thank you very much for working with us closely on this project at Broadgreen Hospital. It was always going to be difficult continuing to work in a clinic area whilst building work was going on, but I think your team were very respectful of what was going on in the clinic and this allowed us to continue to work as best we could. Thank you and I hope you enjoyed the opening.”
Dr Richard Azurdia, Consultant Dermatologist, Dermatology & Allergy Clinic
Broadgreen Hospital, Liverpool

“We have been very fortunate with John Turner who has been diplomatic and eager to meet all our requirements, ensuring above all that we were kept safe within the building site that became our environment. Also that we were still able to teach!! The Bollin School project has been a real success and this is due to the professional and well organised manner in which John Turner staff have conducted themselves. The building site was exceptionally well managed by an experienced Project Manager and overall Area Manager. There was excellent communication with myself and the school governors with a priority for safeguarding the pupils at all times. The pupils and staff received an excellent health and safety talk from John Turner’s Health, Safety and Environment Manager which enabled them to fully understand the impact of what was happening around them. They then created a poster explaining their interpretation of the talk, which was a great success. We are very proud of our new school building and I have no hesitation in recommending John Turner as a result of our association through this project.”
Marilyn Downs
Head of Bollin School

“I would like to confirm that I have now worked with John Turner on a number of projects over the last six years and always found you to be a proactive organisation with a ‘can do’ attitude to projects, who go the extra mile to foster good working relationships with the design team, client organisation and end users as well as promote director level involvement in all cases. This has been particularly important on the Upton All Saints Primary School project in Widnes where we have been working in a live school environment with children onsite albeit segregated from the construction work by the forward thinking of your site management staff who have worked closely with the head teacher to ensure that children were safe at all times but were still able to play an active part in the development of their school by partaking in supervised site visits and engaging in competitions to design elements of the new building. Furthermore, you constantly strive to achieve zero defects at handover to the extent that you will only handover once you are satisfied that the building is as good as can be and ready.”
Peter Astall, Senior Quantity Surveyor
EC Harris

“We write on behalf of the Trust to thank the members of staff at John Turner who have contributed to the recently completed schemes for the refurbishment at Turner Dental Hospital. The two schemes were both very challenging projects. The quality of workmanship and finishes has been excellent and the feedback from the service users is very good and has made a significant improvement for both staff and patients. A large amount of the construction works was carried out at weekends and late evening to meet the programme. The Site Manager who managed the project from the start has been conscientious throughout and has assisted the Trust. He has also worked a considerable amount of weekends and late evening and he needs to be thanked for his services. The Trust has showed confidence in John Turner by placing additional packages of works to be undertaken and would be pleased to consider John Turner for works in the future.”
Alex Beedle, Head of Property and Estates

“We’re delighted that our new Centre is opening bang on schedule and that it will be such a great experience for visitors. We’re really looking forward to welcoming lots of new people to Jodrell Bank in the next few months and years.”
Dr Teresa Anderson, Director
Jodrell Bank, University of Manchester

“I wanted to express the gratitude of the whole of Mayfield Special School’s staff to your company for the new build extension. It has given us two new classrooms which have housed our Mayfield 14-19 department and they are absolutely delighted with what you have given them. The alterations to other classes have also meant a fantastic foundation department which is already encouraging new pupils to our school. Our sincere thanks are also given to your Site Manager who is one of the most patient men I have ever worked with. There were several hiccups along the way and he never failed to sort out a problem and ensured satisfactory conclusions were reached. I cannot commend him enough and assure you he is a valuable asset to your company, as are the many site staff that worked on our project. Please thank them all on our behalf and let them know their cheery smiles and outgoing personalities made the whole project less tedious. Once again, a huge thank you and we wish your company every success in the future.”
Louise Timmins, School Business Manager
Mayfield Special School

“Following on from the construction of our luxury home by John Turner, which we are delighted with, I would like to thank you for all the superb work that has been carried out. We had bespoke wardrobes, cupboards and desks made and fitted by your team of joiners and we have had many other additions since the build was completed. All are beautifully constructed and finished off and we have had many comments from visitors about how good they look. One or two of the pieces required ingenious solutions to make the item fit in and work properly and this was successfully executed each time. The quality of the work is superb, the men were professional and courteous and I would have no hesitation in recommending you.”

“I would like to thank your team for all the efforts made in bringing the projects at, Cavendish and Brookfield Special Schools, to successful conclusions and to express how much we enjoyed working with John Turner.

“I am writing to thank your company “John Turner” for all the hard work and commitment shown by your Site Manager and the team he has managed at Moorside Community Primary School in Skelmersdale. The standard of finished building work is excellent and we are very pleased with how our school is looking. Our thanks, however, must be emphasised because of the attitude shown by your Site Manager and his men to everything that was asked of them. Such professionalism should not go unrewarded and as a school we have thanked your team at a whole school assembly but we would like our praises to go on record officially. We are sending a copy of this letter to our local education authority as we feel it is important they are aware that their choice of contractor was indeed a wise decision. Once again thank you to John Turner for our new school. Our children, parents and staff are enjoying the new facilities very much.”
Mr R Ford, Chair of Governors and Mrs C Howard, Headteacher
Primary School, Skelmersdale

“For their Information System Services Building at Lancaster University, John Turner has won a Bronze Considerate Constructors Scheme National Award. The site was particularly commended for the high standards reached in the categories of considerate; environment; cleanliness; neighbour; respectful; safe; responsible and accountable. This site was a credit to John Turner and to the site team. Considerate Constructors is delighted to be able to recognise and reward the exceptional levels of performance achieved by all the winners of the National Site Awards. Standards of performance have again continued to rise over the past year and the Award winners have demonstrated the very highest levels of consideration towards the public, the workforce and the environment. I should like to congratulate the winners for their hard work and commitment to the Scheme and if all sites performed to such a high standard, the image of the construction industry would be greatly improved.”
Robert Biggs, Chairman

“I could not let the project conclude without sending you a “thank you” to you and your team for the effort provided at Fosbrooke House, Lytham St Annes. 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, the Church of England Pensions Board as the “end user”, was paramount. It started at the first stage interview and has not stopped since. Well done!! Collectively, we have achieved completion on time, a building within budget and in some areas exceeded the client’s expectations. The onsite team has been excellent and please would you pass on my thanks to them. This has been a most enjoyable project and one we should all be proud to have been associated with. I have thoroughly enjoyed the experience.”

“I thought you would be interested to learn that we have now had various groups touring the new inpatient unit at Woodlands Hospice. The groups have included the Overview and Scrutiny Committee, a statutory body which oversees health services for the Local Authority, representatives of the Primary Care Trust, our volunteers, staff and support groups totalling nearly 200 people. Everyone I have spoken to and that is a considerable number of them, has been extremely complimentary about the quality of the finish and workmanship. The works onsite were managed extremely well and efficiently bringing very little disruption to our day therapy. In this context, I really need to record my appreciation to your site team as from my perspective we could not have had a better working relationship. We were always kept informed of the progress, advised in advance of any potential problems largely related to access and car parking. I hope you will be kind enough to convey our thanks to the team.”
Colin Smith, General Manager
Woodlands Hospice Charitable Trust

“As a representative of the client (The Church of England Pensions Board) I confirm that my colleagues at the time of the build project at Fosbrooke House were very happy with John Turner & Sons’ performance. We established a good relationship with the contractor’s team and the project was delivered on time and to a high standard with any problems satisfactorily resolved. I can also confirm that the ongoing service and attention for snagging and other defects has also been very good.”
Tamara Lake, Supported Housing Manager
Church of England Pensions Board

“The Board has been very impressed with the way in which John Turner has undertaken this project at Fosbrooke House, Lytham St Annes to such a satisfactory conclusion and I have been asked by the Chairman and Board to record their grateful thanks to you. The residents who are living at Fosbrooke House are thoroughly enjoying the facilities that we are able to offer and our grateful thanks are extended to the site team for their expertise in seeing this project through.”
Errol Johnston, Housing Manager
Church of England Pensions Board

“You are no doubt aware that we recently took possession of the new completed Health Records building at the Royal Bolton Hospital. I would like to take the opportunity to compliment your team for a well managed and efficient job. The project has been delivered ahead of schedule and is expected to be contained within the approvals. I was particularly impressed by the standard of joinery and cosmetic finishes in general concluding in a smart and tidy handover on the due date. As with all successful projects, it was a team effort but if I had to single out an individual it would be your Site Manager who is very clearly client focused and has been a key player in the success of the project. I look forward to a similar approach with your ‘after sales service’ during the defects period and hope that we will have an opportunity to work with you again in the future.”
Geoff Critchley, Head of Capital Strategy
Bolton Hospitals NHS Trust

“Suddenly the premises are quiet again and another project is satisfactorily completed – on time and to budget. In many resects, the last six months were like a visit from an old friend and I think the reason we are able to work so well together is because we have a similar outlook as to how a business should be conducted – pride in the job, respect for all involved, teamwork, compromise, flexibility, honesty and perhaps above all else a little bit of fun. We are proud of our relationship with John Turner and should you require, we would be pleased to offer references and/or site visits to prospective clients in the future. Please convey the thanks to all your staff for a job well done.”
D M Wyche, Financial Controller
Vanguard Textiles Limited

“Thank you very much for the completion of the work to N Block. We have had a lot of compliments from staff and patients about how professional it looks and also how little we were disrupted. Neil and his team were professional and mindful of working in a busy department, maintained excellent communication throughout and have created a lovely environment for us to work in.”
Phillipa Winter, Therapy Business
Information and Clinical Manager, Royal Bolton Hospital Foundation Trust

You have pulled out all the stops and delivered on all the promises we made jointly at the outset in the face of considerate pressure and difficulties at that. I am so pleased that the whole partnering team has received the highest praise from the school which is due in no small part to the way your company and supply chain have contributed so proactively to the process. We look forward to continuing to work with your company in the future.”
Anthony Pilling, Chief Architect

“Just a brief note to you and the John Turner team to express our thanks in the continued efforts to achieve the very highest standards in completed works on the Valette Square development. The recent feedback we have received from home owners and purchasers has been excellent – both in terms of the completed quality and the manner in which the delivery team has dealt with snagging and outstanding works. It is this approach to projects that ensures they are a success. I look forward to when we can all again inspect as a group and to seeing the same levels of quality (and aftercare) maintained with the completion of the scheme. Thanks for all your hard work and effort which is genuinely appreciated.”
Mike Payton, Project Director

It has been great working with you and I wish you the very best for future projects.”
Dr Jon Watt

Dave Townsend
Group Capital Development Manager, Department of Estate Development, Northern Care Alliance NHS Group

“John Turner Construction (JTCG) delivered a great project for Wigan & Leigh College. SDA Consulting acted as the College’s PM and QS and in these capacities we were very satisfied with the service provided by all of the JTCG team from initial commencement on site to completion and handover. JTCG adopted a friendly and collaborative attitude all the way through the project and worked with the design team and ourselves to overcome any co-ordination or buildability issues, keeping us informed of issues affecting cost and programme all through the works. I would welcome the opportunity to work with JTCG again on future projects and have no hesitation in recommending them.”
Ant Jackson
Client PM and QS, SDA Consulting

“I am more than happy to endorse John Turner Construction and personally wish we did more work with them! In terms of: their overall approach: excellent, proactive and flexible, ease to work with: excellent, transparent and open, quality of workmanship: very good, aftercare and addressing of defects is also very good, ability of the construction team: never encountered any issues, forward thinking, able to be flexible and adapt to change well. Would you use them again? In a heartbeat. As stated the overall experience on this Alfred H Knight scheme and the other projects we have worked with John Turner on has been overall a very good experience at all levels. Final accounts are settled quickly and without dispute and their non-confrontational, proactive approach is to be applauded.”
Mike Kivlehan
Head of Architecture, Kier Specialist Services

“From the start of the Engineering and Construction facility expansion contract at Wigan & Leigh College, John Turner engaged immediately with the College, design team and staff to ensure the project was delivered successfully. Communication was excellent throughout the programme with regular meetings taking place. John Turner consistently presented a ‘can do’ approach to matters which ensured the project was delivered on time and within budget supporting a smooth handover. Throughout the project, John Turner demonstrated a clear understanding of the implications of working on a College site with students present, understanding that the students were central to all that we do here at the College. Having a contractor on board that bought into our ethos was of great benefit. The students and staff are delighted with the end product and we now have some fantastic state of the art facilities and John Turner played a major part in this. The College would be more than happy to work with them again in the future. I would recommend John Turner without hesitation to potential clients.”
Louise Brown
Vice Principal, Wigan & Leigh College

“JTCG were fully engaged from the onset and provided a first class performance from start to finish at LPW Technology. They were flexible in their approach and adapted well to the clients ever changing requirements. The standard of finish was of the highest quality which delivered a scheme to enjoy and be proud of.”
Phil Jones
Facilities & Projects Manager, LPW Technology Ltd

“John Turner have been a pleasure to work with on the LPW Technology project. They have the breadth and depth of a large commercial contractor but the feel of a smaller les contractual firm with a can do relaxed attitude whilst achieving the tightest of timescales. Their attention to detail is exemplarily resulting in minimal snagging and I particularly appreciate the way in which they hand over a job taking time to remain on site a little longer to close off any additional late client requirements that come about on all schemes. Black Cat would not hesitate to recommend John Turner again.”
Stephen M Barnes
Director, Black Cat Building Consultancy Limited

“I am writing to say thank you for the successful completion of this 126 Mount Pleasant project for the University of Liverpool. Thanks go in the main to the Site Managers who have been very helpful, resourceful and cheerful in spite of what we have thrown at them. They have dealt with the challenges in a positive way and been proactive in sorting solution to the difficulties we have encountered along the way. It has been a pleasure working with John Turner. Thanks also to the Contracts Manager who has worked closely with our team to ensure the additional works were completed on time and to a good standard.”
Mat Branton
Project Manager, University of Liverpool

“John Turners were appointed by the University of Liverpool to undertake significant refurbishment works to the existing 126 Mount Pleasant building. Throughout the construction phase we found the John Turners Construction team, led by Neil Hoey, to be proactive in their response to issues as they arose, always looking to provide costed solutions to best overcome any adverse situation. The team worked well with all other consultants and the University themselves, and engendered a collaborative spirit to the project from the outset right through to completion. It is a direct result of this collaborative and proactive approach that the challenging and ambitious project was able to be completed within key timescales, and with final account being agreed at completion. I wish to thank Neil, Stuart and John at John Turners for the commitment and effort on the project and the professional manner in which they conducted themselves – it was a pleasure delivering this project with you.”
Tim Hughes
Associate Director, AA Projects

“On behalf of the Trustees of Anfield Sports & Community Centre (ASCC), I would like to acknowledge the work, commitment and professionalism that John Turner has given during the construction period. The onsite workforce was under the direction of your Site Manager who was my direct contact and an absolute pleasure to work with. From the initial appointment of John Turner, the communication strategy ensured that any potential problems were discussed and a contingency was put in place. ASCC’s through-put is very much about young people involving schools, community groups and holiday camps, the level of health and safety as well as child protection was paramount to the delivery of the construction. Finally, I would like to pass on our sincere thanks to John Turner.”
Marie Rooney
Sports Centre Manager, ASCC

“I just wanted to drop you a line to say thanks for your efforts on site to date at the Oaklands and Christie project for the University of Manchester. The quality of finish and attention to phasing, in line with the project programme, is fantastic. I just wanted to drop you a line to say thanks for your efforts on site to date. I know that the same high standards will remain in place until project completion and look forward to the successful completion of this scheme.”

Excellent site team ensured the new build of Trinity School at Buckshaw Village ran smoothly and problems were overcome with minimum disruption to the programme. Client satisfaction: Product 10/10, Client satisfaction: Service 10/10, Defects: 9/10, Environment: 9/10.”
Richard Dugdale
Architect, Lancashire County Council

“On behalf of the client I represent for the School of Medicine decant projects at the University of Manchester, I am satisfied with the overall physical building product delivered and in general the level of service provided by John Turner on this Morton Laboratory project. The main contractors lead by Gary Shaw, have in my opinion done their very best within the constraints given them by both the Architects and the Engineering design teams. When given extra or remedial works, due to oversights by the above, that the equipment being moved in required, they have jumped to it and facilitated as smooth a transition as possible. So to sum up, Gary and his team have been a pleasure to work with and have my trust in doing what is needed either be it physical work requirements or timely communications regarding any interruptions to services or with regard to works being done in my locality.”
Dave Strong
Research Technician, Morton Laboratory, University of Manchester

“On behalf of the client, School of Materials, University of Manchester, I am satisfied with the refurbishment and overall building product of the MSS Tower.

Julia Cheung

“I am writing to you with reference to Mark, Steve and not forgetting Sid (who seems to be able to do anything) who have been with St Gregory’s High School for a couple of years now, being pivotal in delivering a wonderful new building and teaching facilities for us. Mark has been outstanding throughout, going the extra mile, being completely sympathetic to the day to day running of the school, being innovative and forming great working relationships with colleagues in school. He has been ably and well supported by Steve, Sid and many other employees, all of whom have done everything they could and respected all of our requests and wishes. All in all we are very pleased with your team, our building and improved facilities. I would like to thank you personally for supporting us on our chapel project too. We are very happy with the chapel outcome and it has already been used for some quite special services. All throughout this project, the experience has been good. Mark and the rest of the Turners team are a huge credit to your company and I wanted to ensure that this was acknowledged from my end. I want to thank you all for your work once again and there may be a time in the future where we all work together again. We have been very fortunate to work with Turners on this project. Turners have been excellent throughout and this is something that I am happy to endorse to the 50+ fellow head teachers that I work with on a regular networking basis.”

“John Turner Construction was the principal contractor at The Whitby High School, Ellesmere Port. I found the whole team at John Turner Construction to be very professional, conscientious and approachable. Along the course of the project, we have encountered a number of unforeseen issues which your Site Manager and the rest of the team have taken a proactive approach to resolving. At every point in the delivery of this project, pre or post contract, John Turner Construction always had the utmost consideration for the safety of the pupils and ensuring that any disruption to the operation of the school was kept to an absolute minimum.”

“Thank you for your efforts in completing the reinstatement to the Dover Street Steam Main works in time for the University Open Days. It almost looks as if you have never been there. A lot of work was done in the last few days by you and your team to achieve it, for which the University & Design Team are very grateful. Please pass our thanks onto your subcontractors too without whom this would not have been achieved.”

“We are so grateful for the way in which the contract was carried out at St Leonard’s Primary School. Your site manager was excellent and we appreciate all that he did. He showed a great understanding with regards to school safeguarding and other policies and worked closely to ensure the smooth running of the project without disrupting school life.

“I would like to thank the team that were on site during this refurbishment project at Meadowfield Care Home. All the team were polite, considerate and professional. During the course of the refurb, your Site Manager continually kept myself and my team up to date with progress and continued to have walk rounds to ensure my team, the residents and I was happy with the progress. He was extremely organised, adaptable to change, focused, friendly and compassionate towards the people that use the service. He made sure that the disruptions were kept to an absolute minimal which we are more than grateful for and to top it off the works have been completed before the estimated date of completion – which speaks volumes in itself. All the team at John Turners were so polite and friendly, it really was a pleasure to work with them and I would highly recommend this team. The overall experience for us all at Meadowfield was fantastic and stress free, I really can’t praise the delivery team enough for all the support, commitment and hard work over the course of the refurb. It felt more like one big team rather than working in silo.”

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. “
