Turn Key Solutions & Project Management

We offer a wide range of services which we combine to provide you with a turn-key solution to your machinery location problems. Our team of highly qualified experts will take time to fully understand your machinery needs and requirements, before proposing the services most suitable to the project at hand.

We provide a fully managed service to keep every project running on time and budget and to ensure that all parties are fully informed on the progress of each stage of the project. We use CAD systems for any structural design work required, and plans that are developed either in house or by our clients’ own design team are then integrated into our real-time project management system which allows us to generate and deploy risk assessed, time based work schedules.

Health, Safety & Project Management

Our industry poses severe hazards and onsite risks for the various teams of people involved in any project that requires the movement of machinery, plant and equipment. Time, production, investment and reputation are further factors that must be protected.

At D. Turner & Son, we maintain a rigorous approach to minimising the likelihood of any hazardous events from occurring. We consistently maintain a high level of staff training in the safe removal, dismantling, lifting, handling, assembly and installation, safe operation of vehicles, safe haulage and storage of machinery, plant and equipment.
