Business Philosophy

Respect for people has always been at the heart of Turner’s business.

Among the founding principles that continue to influence our culture, one stands out, seeming to embody all the others: Henry C. Turner’s business philosophy to treat clients as respected friends.

Implicit in this idea is that to conduct good business is to act consistently in our clients’ best interest, and to deliver on our promises. Our people live by this philosophy, recognizing that it is not only what we build, and where, but how we build and conduct business that shapes our legacy.

To this end, we strive to cultivate strong, productive relationships based on mutual respect with colleagues, local subcontractors, partners, and clients alike. We emphasize collaboration, communication, and the highest standards for quality in order to deliver our services safely and efficiently. And we engage deeply in the communities where we build, developing friendships and partnerships with members of the local workforce, as well as local families, businesses, charities, and organizations.

We are honored by the trust our clients place in us as we work to realize their vision.
