“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.”
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.
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 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.
More and more clients want to improve the energy efficiency of their property as part of their project. We won an FMB award for energy efficiency and have vast experience of using the latest techniques and materials to reduce heat loss, improve efficiency of insulation and avoid wastage of natural resources.
Get Turner has been featured in the national press, including ‘Grand Designs magazine‘, The Telegraph’s ‘How to find the best builder for your home’ and The Sunday Times’s ‘Tradesmen you can trust’, and our work on the home of the Evening Standard’s Homes & Property expert, Alison Cork, was featured in her ‘Queen of bargains’ article.
Get Turner is a member of the Federation of Master Builders (FMB), the Contractors Health and Safety Assessment Scheme (CHAS), and is registered with TrustMark, a government-endorsed mark of quality. We operate with full £5 million Public Liability Insurance cover and can also offer an FMB MasterBond warranty for works if required.
“Mark and his team were easy to communicate with, turned up on time, provided creative solutions to the inevitable issues thrown up by the renovation of an old house and never lost their cool! The house looks spectacular.”
“Mark completely got our vision and designed our extension to fit perfectly with what we wanted. There are many ‘wows’ in the finished product and this is thanks to the Get Turner team for their understanding, accommodating approach and attention to detail.”
"Get Turner made our first building project a breeze! The on-site team were highly skilled and the finished look surpassed our expectations. We were given transparent costings throughout and Mark and his team were always available. If you are having any building work done I would be happy to recommend Get Turner."
“Get Turner are a fantastic example of a building company who genuinely strive to do the best work they can. There is an evident passion for the work they do and this translates into built form. They have a positive, can-do approach and excellent problem-solving ability, displayed by all of the team.”
“We had a complete refurb of our 5-bed Victorian house done by Get Turner. Mark was recommended to us and we found him professional, articulate and a nice guy to deal with. He was always trying to do the best for us, project managed it fantastically, and things were done to a high standard. I would DEFINITELY recommend him to anyone.”
“The best thing about working with Mark and his team was the level of detail, beginning with the quote and running throughout the entire build, and also the communication. We always felt reassured that we knew exactly where the project was at any given time.”
“We are delighted with the results of our project. Mark’s team were amazing: efficient, friendly and professional throughout. We have a new space which fits our specifications perfectly and blends function with great design. We would always recommend Get Turner for a seamless approach and a stress-free project.”
