About us

Get Turner Ltd is a successful, family-run business established in East London in 2006 by owner and Managing Director, Mark Turner. Mark has 40 years’ experience in the construction industry and extensive technical expertise in all facets of building work. The company has developed and expanded considerably, from taking on small local jobs to managing high-end extensions, loft and basement conversions, high-spec refurbishments and new-build projects in parts of East, Central and North London.

“Our clients generally spend six-figure sums on extending and improving their properties. When choosing a contractor, of course cost is important, but our clients don’t just look for the cheapest option, they want the whole package – an experienced, professional company they can trust to do a great job and give them real value for their money.”

Award-winning contractor

In 2012, a Hackney-based architect / client whose property we renovated using the latest sustainable materials, entered Get Turner Ltd for the Federation of Master Builders’ Master Builder of the Year Award. We won the London Award for Energy Efficiency and were subsequently recognised in The Telegraph as one of the UK’s Top 20 award-winning builders.

about recommendations

Repeat recommendations

We genuinely get a lot of work through word-of-mouth referrals and repeat business from both clients and architects. We have worked on several houses in the same streets in East London and have refurbished several apartments in the Grade II-listed Barbican Estate. We are also put forward to clients as a preferred contractor by an increasing number of architects with whom we have established long-running relationships.

Reputation – quality and reliability

Reputation is everything in the building trade. Although Get Turner has grown significantly in recent years, Mark still retains a close involvement with every project to ensure that his high standards are maintained; from initial discussions with clients and architects, to fine-tuning quotes and specifications, to liaising with Site Managers and making regular site visits during construction work.

Eco-friendly building

More and more clients want to improve the energy efficiency of their property as part of their project.
