The Practice

Who we are

The Practice was established in 1987 by Andrew Turner and provides a nucleus of professionally qualified, experienced surveyors, project co-ordinators and negotiators. Our ethos recognises the requirement to treat each project and commission as unique, providing Clients with a tailored approach to suit their individual desires and to be flexible enough to adapt to difficulties and specific requirements.

We take great pride in obtaining the majority of our work by reputation and recommendations.

For a medium sized consultancy the Practice covers a wide range of projects both in size and type ranging from £500k to £25m. Projects vary from alterations and extensions to existing buildings to handling major new build and refurbishment projects involving the highest quality of finishes, with many of the properties being listed structures requiring specialist knowledge and attention.

We maintain a personalised service and forthright approach on all projects, maintaining the closest liaison with clients. We endeavour to work closely with clients at an early stage, to understand their needs, offer cost certainty during the course of the project and provide added value.

We offer every assistance in providing the completed project to our Clients, within the parameters of cost and time, ensuring that maximum value for money is achieved.

Project Management is now an integral part of the design and construction process and we recognise the requirement for all members of the design team to perform effectively and within time constraints. Our role of Construction Cost Managers has expanded to embrace Project Management and Employer’s Agent roles to bring about more timely construction.

Our clients expect us to provide proactive management enabling projects to move forward swiftly, and complete without delay.

We recognise the cost of building disputes, with associated legal costs, and always endeavour to negotiate settlement of building contracts without the need for arbitration or legal redress.

The Practice operates from our Harefield office (Uxbridge), closely situated to the M25 and A40 giving extremely easy access to and from London.
