"OK… where to start with the positive experience of having 'Team Turrell' complete our house extension / renovation. In order to keep this to full feature rather than epic length perhaps just bullet points: Team Turrell; • Took the time at the outset to understand, through Neil and Josh in particular, what we wanted to achieve (the finished vision) not just what materials and time was involved to deliver on a set of drawings; • Promised and delivered personal attention at all stages; • Communicated at all levels clearly, accurately and in a timely manner; • Suggested possible improvements / changes to the workplan as the project went along and the detail missing in 2-D plans became clear in physical reality; • Regularly identified tweaks to improve on our concept; • Worked to avoid unnecessary variations, containing the cost of necessary ones and making offsetting savings wherever possible; • Kept dust, dirt and disruption to a realistic minimum, balancing the need to work efficiently with the fact that we were still living in the house; and • Helped us work through issues and choices arising along the way with minimum stress. And, through all those things, have delivered a result that: • Creates beautiful spaces above and beyond what we were looking for; • Is of uniformly exceptional quality; and • Came in bang on budget against what was a very competitive quote. All this is the result of a common theme with Neil and each of his team. Neil sets the tone and whether it was Josh, Mitch, Elliott, Alec, Linda or any of the others we dealt with during the course of the project the approach and experience has been uniformly positive in all respects. So to the bottom line .. our heartfelt thanks to Neil and the rest of Team Turrell for being our chosen partners in this project and we would wholeheartedly recommend others to you!
Adrian and Gill Watkin
We contracted Turrell to deliver a large outdoor extension and some internal works to our home and found the process to be pleasing. The quality of workmanship was high and the job site was kept extremely clean. Josh worked directly on site and was very receptive and responsive to any queries we had about the job and we worked easily through several decisions which needed to be made mid project for a great result. We would definitely use Turrell again in the future. Thanks again Neil to you and your team on site and in the office

My wife and I were looking for builder to build our new home and we asked around the area and met a few people that had built with Turrell homes. The reports were good so I sought to get a quote from Turrells.We asked 4 builders for quotes for our design. Turrell homes were not the least expensive but the detail and flexbility in our discussions helped us make the decision to go ahead with them.Customer service was excellent. My wife and I went through the contract with Brad and Neil and were able to clarify any doubt we had of which there was no doubt in the end. Brad Trethowan was my project manager and his leading carpenter Shannon made a formidable team. Brad and Shannon were flexible and made changes in the build stage and did not make a fuss or charge excessively. Any change requested was either acted upon or a better suggestion was made to achieve a better outcome. All the trades worked very hard and the build was completed on time. Neil and Brad built a beautiful home for us. We were very pleased with the outcome. Our interactions with the staff at the main office was also very cordial and accommodating. We have already recommended Neil and Brad to several friends or anyone who is looking to build a quality home. Our experience has been a very happy one. Thank you Turrell homes. We are very happy with the home you have built us.
Mr and Mrs Hutchins
We engaged Turrell Building Services on the recommendation of our friends who we're building a new home. We were looking for some extensions to our existing home, but wanted the additions to remain in keeping with the rest of the existing house. The team impressed us from the initial consultation with Neil right through to after the final bill was paid. Impressively, Josh and Mitch always turned up when they said, cleaned up every day, took great care with our property, provided spot on advice and kept us under budget. I couldn't have dreamt of a smoother build. We our now sitting back enjoying our new spaces, dreaming up the next project for Turrells. Would happily recommend this team to anyone looking for excellent service. Tracey and Sydney
We were looking for a builder to do a ground floor rear extension to create a new open plan living area, as well as a covered timber deck entertaining area and found your website. After our initial consultation with Neil we chose Turrell as we felt he listened to us and that he had a very clear understanding of what we wanted and how to do it, such as how to integrate the extension into the existing house. The building process was very smooth, which we appreciated as we both work full time, and it was completed within the timeframe we were given at the outset, which definitely has not been the case with other tradespeople we have dealt with. Brad was a fantastic project manager, he was very approachable with any questions we had, and kept us up to date throughout the project. We have received so many compliments about the extension since it's been completed and it has not only added value to our property, but also allowed us to enjoy a better quality of living, both for my husband and I and also when entertaining family and friends. We would definitely recommend Turrell to anyone looking to renovate or extend.
Mr and Mrs Menniti
Neil, I would like to thank Turrells for another job well done. Even though it was a slightly smaller job than the others it was undertaken with the same care as the previous bigger ones! This was due to Josh Brown's professional work and the good support of Mitch and Elliott. Let's hope the next project with you goes as well, Best regards,
To Whom it may Concern, We chose Turrell Building Services to redevelop our outdoor space after meeting Neil and his team. They not only had an impressive track record for similar projects but quickly built our confidence that they could deliver our dream. It was clear from the outset our vision for the project was quickly embraced by Neil and Trent Webb, the project manager. Trent and his team are total professionals who we hold in the highest esteem for the quality of their work, readiness to work collaboratively and at times, manage a sometimes impatient client. Integrity, professionalism and good humour was evident in all the works that they undertook. The result of their efforts produced an outdoor space that highly functional, modern and is even more spectacular than even we had dreamed of. It seamlessly blends with the existing home and has greatly extended our living area. High praise indeed and yes, we would engage Turrell Building Services again in a heartbeat. Thank you Neil, Trent, Laeton and Steve…we absolutely love your work! Karen & John Meadth
John and Karen Meadth
Dear Neil, We wanted to express our sincere appreciation for the amazing job Turrell’s have done in building our dream home. Of all the contractors we met with, we chose you because you really understood our goals. Our design ideas together with your creative input reflected our vision perfectly. It was an extremely positive experience much less stressful than anticipated due to your communication and follow ups, always putting us first and ensuring we were happy every step of the way. Nothing was too much bother and feedback was always welcome and considered. Your diligence, honesty and passion shines through and works well with your open communication. We found your planning, timing and guidance was both professional and efficient. The end result is an amazing home of impeccable quality and a job completed ahead of schedule within our agreed budget. It has been a pleasure to do business with you and we would be only too pleased to recommend your services to anyone, not only for the craftsmanship and skill you bring but also for the integrity and support of you and your team. Kind regards Sharon and Sean Andersen
Sean and Sharon Andersen
To Whom it may Concern, We have recently added a first floor addition tour home. The work carried out by Turrell Building was excellent each step of the way. this included the initial planning services and continued right through to the completion of the construction and was all without drama. Each of the contractors who arrived to carry out their works where not only punctual but the work was a great standard. Brad was great that you could call him with any queries and he answered them straight away or followed them up for us immediately. We have had many comments on our addition and that it looks like it has been there from the beginning. We strongly recommend Turrell Building because of the service and the quality of the work and ease of the process and are more than happy to recommend to prospective clients.
Mr and Mrs Pollard
To Whom it may concern, We called Turrell Building Services once we saw the site sign on other projects in the local community Neil was genuinely interested and excited and encouraging about our project. We felt he was willing to contribute to the design stage and was able to contribute to the design. Neil also brought Trent the P/M out to site before we had entered into a contract to review the project and meet us which was reassuring. We got Additional living space with a contemporary feel and nice inclusions and extra bedroom and it was achieved perfectly. Our customer service was great from all parties and we had a good experience and we would recommend Turrell to anyone that was interested. On the whole the trades were great however a few minor finishes from the gyp-rocker and a timber trim needed fixing but I wouldn't say this is a poor reflection on Turrell! All in all - we had a fond experience of our extension project. Trent and the guys were great to work with.
I hope this is helpful, let me know if you need anything else. I have been meaning to send this email about the works completed at our house. Both Peter and I are really happy with everything that's been done so far. Josh and the boys are both fabulous and I can't praise them enough! We always look forward to seeing them. I think over the years we've built a relationship and we are very comfortable in the knowledge that it's all going to work out perfectly. Thanks again
I have had a number of building issues over the years and have dealt with a number of companies with varying degrees of success. My approach to Turrell’s Building Services occurred after these experiences and I was delighted that not only was there full appreciation of the problem I was experiencing but also a full understanding of the solution required. This resulted in in a total approach whereby the work not only solved the problem but was also done at a level of expertise not previously experienced. In other words there was consideration of the client’s problem, an appreciation of what the client wanted and a level of finish which enhanced the property exceedingly. That experience left me in no doubt that I had found a builder who not only listens but also understands, someone I can trust and whose advice I respect. I have now called on Turrell’s again and they have successfully met my requirements to the extent where I have now engaged them for a third renovation. I would have no hesitation in recommending Turrells - and have done so-no matter how large or small the job may be.
To Whom it may concern, We have to say our initial conversations were really good, in that Turrell were honest and upfront, and very very quick with their quote, which didn’t leave anything out. We dealt with about five different building companies prior to Turrell and felt they were the only ones who were serious about taking on our job, which was a biggie ! Our first meeting with Neil & Brad was fantastic, their communication about all aspects of the job was honest & insightful. Our builders, Shannon and his team has been great, with advice and suggestions also. Their experience and expertise has been an absolute blessing for us, as we’ve never built, renovated or extended. So they really have helped ease the stress and anxiety of the whole build. Although Turrell weren’t the ones who designed our particular job ( As they do design also), Turrell have made quick decisions with us, and offered advice on the entire project which has reduced major headaches. In saying this, we would whole heartedly recommend Turrell as they really are just a great team overall to work with. Good luck with your project if you are fortunate to have Turrell do the works. All the best Natalie & Kahn Brevig North Turramurra
For many years we had been contemplating the idea of knocking down and re-building our 70’s style patio/entertaining area. Unfortunately we never seemed to find what we were looking for. Whilst browsing through a Home Improvement supplement in a week-end newspaper we came across an article on a home renovation in Pennant Hills carried out by Turrell Building Services. The home looked amazing. At our first meeting you understood what we wanted to achieve and in no time at all plans were drawn up and the project began. We were delighted with your Project Manager Josh who worked in a professional manner. Nothing was too much trouble for him. We worked with Wade in designing the landscaping in our courtyard. Wade achieved what we had envisaged. Damien laid the sandstone on our patio and around the pool. We cannot thank Damien enough for his time and patience in laying the stone, it really looks amazing. We now have a “Resort Style” outdoor living area admired by all who come to our home. We thank you Neil and “Team Turrell”. We would be happy to recommend your Company to anyone wishing to employ your services.
Ian & Carolynn Pope
We wish to acknowledge how pleased we were with the addition that your company constructed to our home. From the beginning of our association with your company, we were impressed that you took an interest in our project by firstly visiting us, supplying us with a firm lump sum quotation, preparation of plans and obtaining various authorities approval. You commenced and completed everything within the specified time, with no interruption to us what so ever. All of your staff were obliging, pleasant and honest and all performed their duties in a tradesman like manner. We are thoroughly satisfied with the project and we will have no hesitation in recommending your firm to anyone requesting your services.
Ray and Betty Kingcott
I am writing this to you to say how very happy we are with our new outdoor living area. All of our family and friends that have come to see our new extension are very impressed with what they see, especially the workmanship and design. We have doubled our living area as all our living rooms connect to the outdoor area. Any queries or questions we had were addressed by your professional staff to our satisfaction and we have no hesitation in recommending Turrell Building Services.
Colin & Ellen Manton
I’d like to commend Turrell’s Building Services commitment to detail and customer satisfaction as it was first rate. Neil was always available to discuss the job and kept us well advised of how things were progressing. He consistently went out of his way to ensure all aspects of the extensions were explained clearly and offered alternatives when needed. I had the utmost confidence in Neil and the entire team (Todd and Cameron in particular) and have been delighted with the finished product. Well done Turrell's.
To whom it may concern, Since the introduction, we have found Neil to be extremely reliable, punctual, polite and more than willing to do what ever is necessary to complete the job. His ability to communicate with his employees and contractors is always carried out in a professional and friendly manner. Neil has proven to be very enthusiastic and has vast knowledge of the building industry. We have no hesitation in recommending Neil and his team behind him to build your project if you want the job done with quality. For any further information regarding Neil, feel free to contact us personally.
John & Dianne Meyer
This email is to formally thank and acknowledgeTurrell Building on the work done in the recent extension to my place in Cherrybrook. We have received the Certificate of Occupancy from Hornsby Council some months back but apologise for the delay in sending this note. Since we first contacted Neil Turrell last year, for a quote for the extension to my house, we have had excellent responses to any questions and issues raised with Neil and his team. His quote for the project was accurate and reasonable compared to other vendors that I contacted. The materials used by Turrell is of top quality. The team of carpenters Neil used on our job, Todd and Cameron were also polite, courteous and very professional in their dealings and workmanship. We also found the receptionist, accounts, brickie, plumber, electrician and the floor sander people excellent. Neil uses great painters. Even their plumbing suppliers, The Bathroom Shop, provided great pre and post sales service for our laundary and bathroom renovations. Please pass on our thanks to all your staff on behalf of myself and my wife as we could not have dealt with a better team. We will be looking at building a pergola soon and will look forward to Turrell's again for a quality project which will further enhance the value of my property. Please feel free to call me if you have any queries and I have no hesitation in being a referee for Turrell's.
It has been three months since you have completed the work at our house and I would like the opportunity to thank you on the way you have handled the job and to congratulate you and your employees on the finish quality of the project. It is with pleasure that I do supply that reference and I am sure that whoever does require your services will be completely satisfied with the end results of whatever building project you may be required to build. Please accept our sincere thanks for the way you have handled our project and we hope to be able to use your services again in the future.
The workmanship and attitude of both yourself and your staff made the addition of our deck an extremely painless exercise. We were impressed by the fact that you arrived at the appointed time, quoted promptly, and all the work was carried out in a very professional and timely manner. we were led to believe, by other people who quoted, that it was a difficult area to design something practical, but at no stage did you lead us to believe this to be an obstacle. Not only has the addition added a finished look to the rear of our duplex but also has given us an added room that has been in constant use since its completion. We have had many visitors over the Xmas holidays and the compliments on the workmanship and the practical design are a credit to you and your staff. Once again, please accept our appreciation and we wish you every success for the future.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the renovation work your firm recently completed on our home. The friendliness and professionalism of you, your office staff and various sub-contractors made it a pleasure doing business with you. Both Jeremy and I are extremely pleased with the work done on our property and hope we will be in a position to work with you in the future.
Jeremy and Annabel Pittman
We would like to thank you and your staff for building our pergola with a maximum amount of care and attention to detail and a minimum amount of drama. We appreciate the way we were kept informed of any delays or problems that could occur and the way in which all our requests were respected. We particularily appreciated the unfailing courtesy of you and your staff throughout the building process and would recommend your company to anyone thinking about a new pergola.
Robyn and Keven Doughty
Having dealt with many trades people over the last 30 years we were nervous when we decided to look for a builder to undertake our Pergola project. From our first meeting with you, to the completion of our job has been a pleasurable experience. Not the nightmare or stressful situation we have been through in the past on other projects we have undertaken. We always hear about the bad experiences. I would not hesitate to recommend Turrell Building Services to any person or company considering undertaking a building project. Your team is very professional right down to the small detail. We were very impressed with the way our site was managed with even the rubbish being removed promptly. In our experience it is unusual for a job to finish on time on price. Your team managed both. They were a delight to work with, congratulations. We are ecstatic with the finished product.
Diana and Kimbal Cook
The deck that you and your team built onto the back of our new home is the BEST feature of the house!!! Everyone who has visited us since it was finished has been very impressed with both the design and the workmanship. We personally have spent a lot of time out on the deck relaxing - it adds another dimension to our home that we could not live without. Having just gone through the construction of our home we were abit apprehensive about further building. However, we could not have been happier with you and your team - at all times the guys working on site were friendly and respected the fact that we were living in the house. The staff in the office were wonderful - always helpful and happy. The quality of workmanship and attention to detail that has gone into our deck is excellent and we are sure to be enjoying this feature for years to come. We will certainly use Turrell's again and have no hesitation in recommending you.
Micheal and Fiona Flemming
Veronica and I wish to take this opportunity in thanking you and all your staff for a truly wonderful job in designing, implementing, co-ordinating and completing our recent entertainment extensions. The professional manner from Turrell's Building Services from start to finish was impeccable and never overbearing in any way. Your office staff from the outset was most helpful and acccommodating along with the tradesmen whose detailed workmanship was of the highest order. The compliments that we have received from relatives and friends has been a testimony to your efforts and for that we thankyou. This area has added a new dimension to our home that will allow us to enjoy added living area day and night, autumn, winter, spring and summer. Your organisation is a credit to the building industry and once again Veronica and I would like to say thankyou for a "stirling job".
Tony and Veronica Russo

Tim and Joan Smith
Several days have passed without a visit or telephone call from one of your team. Sandra and I are delighted to be able to say that our Outside entertainment area upgrade is complete and looks absolutely fabulous. From your very first visit when Sandra and I sat with you outside in our tired old entertainment area and we asked you to help us achieve what was only ideas at that stage we have been impressed by the professionalism shown by your organisation, starting with of course, yourself. All of your team are friendly, courteous and go about their tasks with an eye to detail ensuring that the finished product is of a very high standard. Your help in the design, and support in the choice of a number of the inclusions, floortiles, Laserlite Twinwall, downlights, glass pool fencing, to name just a few, has ensured that we now have an outside entertainment area including the swimming pool area that we are extremely proud of. Neil, Sandra and I will be pleased to have our endorsement of both your organisation and your very high quality workmanship passed on to others. Thankyou for what you have done for us and please accept our very best wishes for the future of your company.
Sandra and Barry Lovell
I am writing to you to say how very happy we are with our new outdoor living area. All of our family and friends that have come to see our new extension are very impressed with what they see especially the workmanship and design. We have doubled our living area as all our indoor living rooms connect to the outdoor area. Any queries or questions we had were addressed by your professional staff to our satisfaction and we have no hesitation in recommending Turrell Building Services.
Trevor and Janet Jones
Just a short note to express Valerie and my thanks for the work that your company recently completed for us. Although the flooring is not visibile to visitors to our home, we have no hesitation in telling them of the high quality of work that your tradesmen provided. It also gives us a sense of satisfaction knowing that the materials used are of the highest quality and no shortcuts or compromises were were used to achieve that standard of workmanship. From the initial quote to the finalisation of the job, all of our targets, of budget, time and quality were achieved. Please pass on our thanks to Richard, Chris and the rest of your employees who worked on the project. Please rest assurred, that we will have no hesitation in recommending you and your company to anybody who may be seeking the services of a reliable building company. Once again, thank you for a job well done.
Valerie and Ray Piper
On behalf of my family, I would like to thank you for designing & building our Pergola / outdoor entertaining area. It had taken us many frustrating years to come up with a design, until we saw your display at Impressions Castle Hill. From day 1 working with yourself & Josh (Project Manager) during the design & construction was a pleasure. Nothing was a problem & any concerns we had were always addressed & actioned immediately. I would like to make special mention of Josh's Professional & extremely friendly attitude during the whole construction. We were always kept updated on each stage & any variations or adjustments required to the design daily. Even at the end of a long days work, & after cleaning up the work area, Josh would spend time with us talking over the construction details & any questions we had on present & future developments we were planning. He was extremely helpful to us locating & organising contractors for us on another project we were doing ourselves at the same time. It is very pleasing to us when friends & guest come around & comment on how good the design is & the quality of the workmanship, which is a credit to your company & staff.
Roger & Chris McNaughton
Recently we contracted Turrell's to build a deck around our swimming pool. We would like to take this opportunity to thank you and all your staff and contractors for the professional manner in which this job was handled. From day one to completion it was a pleasure to do business with Turrell's. Everyone that visits our home comments on the design and workmanship of the decking. We would have no hesitation in recommending your Company to anyone requiring such a service. Again thanks to you, your staff and contractors for making this project so easy.
Chris and Larraine Erickson
Kerri and I are absolutely delighted with the finished product of our deck and pergola. As you know it was important for us to not only have a quality product, but one that matched our existing structures to complement the extensive renovations we have done over several years. Your design team and subsequently your construction team have delivered to us exactly what we had hoped for. It is always a bit nerve racking to undertake such a construction not knowing exactly how the end product will look. Your understanding of our vision and converting that to a reality has given us great pleasure in knowing we made the right choice when selecting you as our supplier. We wish you and your extended team continued success.
A big thankyou for the Plasma Screen! Winning it came as a great surprise and we were thrilled to be able to take it home. It is now installed and is a great asset to our home. We would also like to commend you on your work in building our verandah extension. Your team did a superb job and the quality of the design and finish is quite beyond our expectation. In particular the team that carried out the work were very good and also incredibly polite. Josh who was the site manager was very communicative and extremely helpful in minimising inconvenience and consulting us over the building process. We would also commend the office staff for their professional attitude and of course you did an excellent job yourself. You can take much of the credit for a very impressive organisation. Overall we are delighted with the outcome and will and have highly recommended you to our friends and wish you much sucess in the future.
Diane and Alan Bullingham
We just wanted to extend our sincere heartfelt thanks to you and all the team at Turrell's for the excellent job you have done on our renovation, extension and deck/pergola. It's a dream come true and we are thoroughly enjoying our beautiful extension and new rooms. Not to mention the "Turrell Special" deck/pergola perfectly links our entertainment, outdoor and pool areas. The project was expertly and professionally managed from the initial design stage with you, right thru to completion. Your guidance and suggestions ensured the quality finish that is so admired by all who visit us. The attention to detail shown on all aspects of this project was second to none. Given that we run our own business it was imperitive that we were disrupted as little as possible and your team excelled themselves in this regard. May I also extend a special thanks for the care and courtesy shown by all members of your team towards our children and numerous pets. We have no problem recommending your services to anyone interested in a quality, professional renovation or extension and we will be sure to use your services again in the near future.
John and Michele Glover
I wanted to take the opportunity to convey to you and your team my appreciation for the approach you have taken to the renovations inside my home and the additions. I am delighted with the quality of workmanship and with the thought given to ensuring that the end product was finished to my highest satisfaction. In particular I want to thank Rob, Paul and Ben who took the time to explain all facets and when required an alternative to the original plans which improved the outcome. Each day they cleaned up the area, which meant that despite the work going on around me, my life remained comfortable for the period of the renovations. Thank you also to Stewart who provided a quality paint job. My original brief to you was "when the work is finished I don't even want to pick up a paint brush", was delivered on time and in accordance with that brief. Price was a consideration to me as I am sure it is for all your customers and I recieved good value for my money. Even additional work outside of the contract was quoted fairly and this demonstrates the integrity of your company. Would I recommend Turrell's? It is not my usual practice to recommend trades people to my friends but in your case I am making an exception. I have appreciated the relationship and being a part of your family for a short but fruitful period.
Firstly, I apologise that it has taken so long to write this reference for you. Time does get away. The Large entertaining area that Turrells put around the swim/spa and back of the house is fantastic. It is as though we have another two rooms added to the house and our friends and family have inspected every bit of timber and workmanship just to see if they could find a problem! But, there is nothing for them to comment on other than – Wow! What a brilliant job, you have been very fortunate to find such a master organisation that has quality carpenters working for them. From the time that we met you and signed the contract the Service provided by you and your team of carpenters was superb. There is no way that you could fault any member of the team. They were always very professional in their dealings with us as well as polite and courteous. We were so impressed we developed the following: What does the word TURRELL stand for? T - Top Service U - Understand the customer’s needs R - a Ready Organisation, staff are always read to take on whatever is asked of them R - Rock solid, dependable Organisation E - Experienced and enthusiastic staff L - quality Leadership provided at every stage of the journey L - a Likeable group of people to work with It was a pleasure to work with you and all your team. Please accept our appreciation for an outstanding job and Marlene and I wish you every success for the future. We would be pleased to provide a personal reference if that is required for any of your potential clients.
Kathy Baker and Marlene Hinchliffe
I recently had some building alterations carried out to my residence by Turrell Building Services Pty Ltd. I have no hesitation in recommending Turrells to anyone who is considering having building works carried out by Neil and his team. We were most impressed with the professional approach commencing with the initial consultation and extending right through the entire construction period. The standard of workmanship was first class, with all tradesman engaged reflecting a similar attention to detail, and all services were carried out with minimal disruption or inconvenience resulting in a building addition that we are extremely happy with. All programmed works were completed within the project deadlines, and we were kept fully informed on each phase of the works, and received helpful and friendly advice on any issues that arose, reflecting a thoroughly professional attitude from a highly efficient and dedicated team. It is no coincidence that this Organisation has consistenly received recognition within the Building Industry by winning a number of awards through the application of these high standards.
Oh God,” said many to whom we mentioned the word renovation, “we’ve just been through that and it was a nightmare!” When we tell them our story most don’t believe us. We began the process of renovating our small, three bedroom brick veneer home some time ago and sent ambitious plans to several builders – all exceeded our budget substantially. One of the builders we briefed was Neil Turrell. He steered us in the direction of draughtsman Graham Young and between them they came up with a plan that delighted us and, most importantly, was within our budget. Neil and his team, under the supervision of building foreman Richard Francis, were exceptional. Attention to detail, innovation, cost control, and a real appreciation of our needs could not be faulted and we now have a home that is a joy to live in and a credit to the workmanship and genuine care that Turrell Building brought to the project. We can all get a little cynical of references that appear to be excessively laudatory, but before engaging Neil we spoke to several couples for whom he had undertaken major renovations and, without exception, they were highly complimentary. It is a pleasure to be able to say that, if asked, we would be too.
Joan Lambert and Mike McClellan
Following the recent completion of the building and landscaping works at our home, we would like to thank you for the professional handling of the project and the quality of finish on the completed works. The commitment to have the job completed on time for the engagement party is especially appreciated given the delays caused by the rain during the construction. Our thanks must also go to Wade and his team for the many days working in the rain to ensure key milestones were met. This has now provided us with a fabulous entertaining area that has a great feel to it and everyone who attended the function commented on the finished result. One of the key aspects of completing a project is in the detail of the last 5%. This is the area that your team took great attention with and we would not hesitate to recommend Turrell Building Services team.
Michael and Debbie Howard
We would like to thank you and your team for the extension and entertaining area you built for us recently to compliment our new inground pool. In particular we would like to thank Brad and Chris for the professional way they co-ordinated the whole building process and for taking the time to discuss ideas thoroughly with us so that the end result was exactly what we wanted. We knew from the first visit with you Neil that we were going to end up with a first class job and one that will still look good in ten years. We thoroughly enjoyed Christmas with our family and friends and everyone has been so impressed with our new outdoor area. Thank you for the excellent work you and your team have done and we look forward to working with you again soon.
Michael & Robyn Watts
On behalf of the Goldsmith family, Jason, Joanne, Daniel and Tim, I would like to pass on our sincere gratitude at the wonderful job you and your team performed in producing a magnificent renovation and extensions. Throughout the whole project, from design to completion, the project was highly professionally organised and, a little surprisingly, a very pleasant process to be part of. The partnership arrangement between you the builder and us the owner was cohesive with lines of communication always open. We felt you shared the same vision, and you and your team showed the same enthusiasm and motivation in acheiving our dream home. I was very impressed with all team members including the project manager who didn't come to us with problems, but always solutions. Linda was excellent in keeping us updated with the financials. All the tradesmen showed the highest work ethic and always produced workmanship of the highest standard. Every supplier you refered us to were very helpful aswell. Graham did an excellent job converting your and our ideas to paper. Graham made the process of drawing the plans as well as managing the council requirements seamless. As you know, Joanne and I have been planning this project (dreaming) for years and now that we are settled in, you have well and truely surpassed our highest expectations. It is with our sincere gratitude that we thank you and all your team for delivering the family home we only ever dreamed of. It goes without saying I would highly recommend Turrells to anyone planning a major project as I know they will continue to deliver homes of the highest standard of excellence. Well done !! and once again a big thank you to all involved.
Turrell Building carried out a major renovation at our property in Galston. The renovation comprised construction of an outdoor entertaining area, addition of a bay window and remodelling of various living spaces inside the house. Neil and his team brought a flexible and creative approach to solving some very tricky design challenges and then executed the solutions in a highly professional manner. The tradesmen were clean, considerate and generally met the commitments they made on project timing. We are delighted with the outcome. I would have no hesitation in recommending Turrell Building to others.

It was an experience to watch our home evolve the way it did, from the smallish cottage to now a much roomier modern home with both additions and extensions. We chose you for our builder as you showed such dynamic energy in your work and your ideas reflected just that. Amazing how the design of the back of the house turned out quite by accident and is now such a feature of the home. It was a comfort to know that our home and privacy were respected by your polite and mannerly tradesmen who had a task to build our home around us while we all were still living there (all 11 of us) and also with no interruption to our home office. Our thanks also for keeping the site clean. To look at it now, only a few months down the track you can hardly see that you were here at all. From your initial meeting Neil, Brad the architect, through to finishing, all was done in a very professional, fuss less manner and our most sincere thanks to each and everyone of the crew involved in our project. I’d love to name everyone but I’m afraid I may forget someone. Well done and here’s wishing you and your respective companies much success in the future.
Paul & Junainah Lynch
Just a little to note to say a BIG THANK - YOU to you and your wonderful team! (Overdue but very heartfelt!) Our renovation is wonderful – we love it! It all went to plan, no surprises and was a fantastic experience. This is in no small way due to Richard and his team. It was an absolute pleasure to have Richard, Jason, Matt, John and Paul in our home. We can not speak highly enough of them all. Not only is their work excellent but they are lovely people. Their attention to detail, pride in their workmanship, professional attitude, flexibility, friendliness and sense of fun made the renovations a great experience for all of us. (The dogs certainly missed them when they left!) You are indeed a lucky man to have staff of this calibre. We are painting madly, haven’t started on the garden yet…… the list seems to be growing….It could take us a while! We are thrilled with our home and would recommend Turrell Building without hesitation. Again, thank-you very much.
Rob & Kerri-anne McBrien
We thank all at Turrell Building Services for their enthusiasm and determination to design and produce what we had in mind. Your marvellous design blends in perfectly and complements our sandstone home and our way of living, it is like being outside without the elements. Neil you had one look at our home knowing “what” and “how” to bring the light in without the heat, while still in keeping with the style, even improving on what was already there. Brad and Ben with their expertise and craftsmanship have produced this wonderful sandstone and glass room which has everything, light, space, atmosphere and style. Thank you all so very much we now have a beautiful room, which has already become the favourite room in our home as it has already proved to be naturally warm on winter days and nights by the perfectly preforming sandstone fire place. The way it has been designed and the materials used it will be cool in summer as well. The first thing friends and visitors ask is who the builders are, we have pride in saying Turell Building Services. You are a credit to the building trade, with a friendly and co-operative group of people; we would highly recommend Turrell Building Services to anyone.
Kerry and Vern Norrgard
It is with great pleasure and confidence that we write this letter of recommendation for Turrell Building Services. If you are looking to engage with a professional builder, one we found very trustworthy and one you can work with from inception to completion, we have every confidence that Neil and his team can help you, as they helped us. The initial factors that set Turrell Building Services apart from other builders was their ability listen and their proactive approach. Our job was quite complex in nature as we wanted the extension to blend with the existing 1940’s structure and roofline, and it was a pleasure to work with a team that was in tune with our needs and wishes from the outset. Bradley Baldock from Absolute Architectural, provided superb service and improved design concepts even further. Throughout the process Neil remained in contact with us ensuring everything remained on track, but we must say that Josh (Project Manager) and Adele (Tradesperson) were absolutely fantastic. Both Josh and Adele were extremely professional, with a real eye for detail – something that is lacking in many tradespeople today and something that is critical for any job to run smoothly. Thanks Josh and Adele! We must also add that for the first time in our lives, having undertaken many different renovations over the years on various properties, the work was completed on time and on budget. This was despite the atrocious Sydney weather during the last months of 2007. We found Turrell Building Services to be the best builders we have ever worked with and we were totally pleased with the completed project. They undertook the work with a minimum of fuss and we would not hesitate in using them the next time we renovate.
Peter and Virginia Klemt
Firstly thank you for your kind gift of the Red Wine, which is right up my alley, I regularly visit the Hunter Valley and love sampling various vintages. I would like to thank you for the way in which your company and the building project manager Brad handled my recent roof renovation. The project was commenced at the agreed time and completed well within the contract period, despite the fact that there was rain most days during the building process. Nothing was too much trouble for Brad, they were very approachable, even when I added extra work to the contract. The building site was kept clean and tidy at all times and after the completion of work you would not even know they had been there. I am very pleased with the final result and I would recommend Turrell's to anyone who wants a professional quality job for any building project. This is the second time I have used Turrell's and I have been very happy with the outcome both times.
We consulted Turrell Building Services after seeing an example of their work in Castle Hill and being very impressed with the design. We wanted to build an outdoor entertainment area at the rear of our newly renovated home and the Turrell structure was just what we had imagined as a valuable addition to our property. We have a north facing back garden. Our kitchen and family room are both very sunny in the wintertime, but hot in the summer. With an unusual roofline to deal with, we could not find a solution to our building problem – how to create an attractive pergola which would give shade in summer, but not lose the winter sun. The Turrell outdoor room was the solution. Designed specifically for our situation by Neil Turrell, we were able to build a stylish outdoor entertaining area, which allowed the light indoors, allowed the winter sun in, but eliminated the harsh summer sun and heat. Neil suggested the addition of downlights, a fan and roof speakers connected to our stereo, which gave us an outdoor room to use all year round. The workmanship of Damian, our project manager, and his crew was outstanding.The attention to detail was evident throughout the building process and nothing was ever too much trouble, no problem too big or too small. We also had Turrells re-vamp our back garden. New pavers for patio and pool area, garden edging and new plantings. Wade and his team did a great job. The building and landscaping teams were consistently professional, polite and hard working and very easy to have around. The office staff were courteous and helpful and Neil was always available if a problem arose. Building is usually a stressful process – ours was not. We are very happy with the end result and would be pleased to recommend Turrells for a superior job and friendly professional service from start to finish. We would definitely use them again.
Rob and Elizabeth Walker
A big thank you in relation to the renovation/extension your company recently completed for us. We had a house with very limited living accommodation and wonderful views that we were not taking advantage of due to bad design. We wanted to extend our indoor living area opening it up to the views and also include an undercover outdoor entertaining area linking this to the existing pool. We chose Turrell Building Services due to their excellent reputation in the local area of Dural. We were not disappointed. Neil spent many hours with us in the early planning stages determining our needs and organised plans to be drawn up by Graham Young (one of Turrell’s draftsmen). We all worked well with Graham resulting in a plan that we were happy with. We did not have to wait long after council approval for our dream to start happening. Neil introduced us to Damien who managed and built our project along with others in the Turrell team and all were professional in every respect. Nothing was too much for Damien, any problems that arose where alterations needed to be considered were approached and solved without any issue what so ever. Damien and his enthusiastic team were always punctual and on the job, there were very few hold ups due to delays in materials not arriving ensuring the job flowed smoothly through to completion. We had a few minor unforeseen issues after completion which were attended to promptly and without question by Neil and his team. We have no reservation in recommending Turrell Building Services to any prospective clients and we would be more than happy to act as a reference point on their behalf.
Terry and Anne Lambert
We would like to take this opportunity to thank you and your outstanding team for the first class job that you did with our extensions. We took a very long time to decide to go ahead, but throughout this process you were always patient and never pushy, providing ideas and food for thought. It was your conviction that the work and finished project would be outstanding that encouraged us to finally take the plunge. We are very glad we did - you were right, it is outstanding! Your tradesmen were always helpful, polite, hard working and took a great deal of pride in their work, ensuring a first class result. It has been a pleasure to do business with you and we would be only too pleased to recommend your services to anyone.
Rick, Jenni, Elaine and Sonya Vey-Cox
Tony and I would like to thank Neil Turrell and his very professional and tireless team for the construction of our outdoor entertainment area. It was important to us that the new area not look like an addition but that it complemented the original contemporary structure of the house. With the combined design features by Neil and current building and landscaping concepts by both Damian and Wade, the perfect outdoor entertainment area was achieved. Although the process appeared quite complex each detail was clearly communicated to us and completed meticulously. The teams were always punctual, courteous and respectful of our property. Tony and I are both very pleased with the completion our new entertainment area and highly recommend Neil and his diligent team.
Jacqueline and Tony Rost
Neil, good to see you and Josh on Tuesday on the completion of our very large renovation. It worked out really well and certainly enhances the look of the whole property. All your people were great and especially Josh who managed and worked on the project. It was a pleasant experience and a good result.
Thank you and your teams for the excellent work carried out to improve my outdoor living. The whole job from laying the slab for the spar, constructing the deck and pergola to the final landscaping were done in a courteous and very professional manner. Special praise and recommendations go to Richard, Matt and Jason for an outstanding job with very high levels of craftsmanship. All questions and queries were immediately dealt with and as such I highly recommend Turrell Building and Landscaping Services for your home improvements.
My husband and I engaged Turrell Building Services to complete the construction of our home at Dural. Turrells became involved in the works subsequent to horrendous problems that we had encountered with a prior building company (that has since had its building licence cancelled). Due to the profoundly detrimental impact that the prior builder had on our family, we were very cautious about placing trust in another building company. From the outset however, Neil Turrell has gone out of his way to ensure that we are happy and fully informed about the progress of the works. Neil employs a wonderful team of office staff who have also been extremely helpful and friendly throughout the building of our home. Due to his role as site supervisor, Josh Brown had become our day to day point of contact. My husband and I have found Josh to be extremely friendly, courteous and professional in all of our dealings with him. Most importantly, Josh is ensuring that all of the works are completed expeditiously and to a very high standard. It is very apparent to us that Josh has the respect of all of the contractors on site and this has ensured that the completion of the works has remained on track. In complete contrast to our prior experience, my husband and I have found the completion of our home by Turrells to be “smooth sailing”. We are very much looking forward to moving into our new home. My husband and I would be delighted to offer a verbal reference for Turrell Building Services should it be required.
Tim and Maree Kirkland-Morris
My apologies for the very belated ‘thank you’ but we really do appreciate the great job, well done by Turrell Building Services. As you know Sandi & were very much looking forward to beginning our nomadic adventures and having the pergola replaced and front yard area concreted & paved to such a high standard, well in advance of our intended departure date certainly took a load off our minds. On our return, we found that our large 5th Wheeler can now be maneuvered and parked-up within our property with comparative ease. From the outset the relationship with yourself has been a real pleasure, nothing was considered a hassle, small changes were accommodated, and the workmanship carried out by your firm and associates was exemplary. We were very pleased with the interface of the new yard area with the original paving, and particularly the time taken to ensure that both the aesthetic and physical details were the best that they could be. All tradesmen on site were courteous, considerate, took obvious pride in the quality of their work, and in meeting their customer’s expectations. My thanks to Josh & Wade for their coordination and oversight of the job. From my perspective, I really did appreciate the friendly and professional approach exhibited by the ‘Turrell Team’ and would not hesitate in using your services again. Thanks also for the great bottle of 'Red'.
It’s a pleasure to provide an endorsement of Neil and his team at Turrell’s. To undertake any construction project represents a considerable investment of time and money. We were naturally daunted by the prospect but felt comfortable with the professional and patient way in which Neil took us through all the preliminary planning and contract meetings to council approval. Once construction started we were impressed with the skill, friendliness and attention to detail shown by Brad and Ben and the various sub contractors, along with Wade and the landscapers. All the tradesmen were genuinely interested in our job and as excited as us as things progressed. While Neil had several jobs on at once, his communication with us was exceptional; he was always contactable and often scheduled meetings after hours or on weekends to fit in with us. The end result is an amazing space that has added considerable value to our home and our lives. Neil continues to follow up with us regularly to check if any problems have arisen although there have been none. We are delighted to show off our “Tree House” and landscaping and answer any questions you might have as an owner and potential client. We are sure you’ll enjoy working with Turrell’s as much as we have.
Brian and Jennifer Blacklock
I just wanted to thank you & the team now that my new extensions are finally finished. I know that I will be spending a lot of time out there, especially in summer. I appreciate that you put me in touch with Graham initially who listened to my ideas & designed a seamless addition especially given the council requirements of a heritage listed house. I had a comment recently that someone didn’t even realise the house had had an extension as it looked like it was always there, which is what I wanted to achieve. I really appreciated the efforts of Scott, who seemed to spend a lot of days here working by himself as well as Matt. There were quite a few other contractors involved & thanks also go to them. Thank you again for your time to discuss the small issues to enable them to be resolved. I really wanted a builder that produced quality work & appreciated old houses & I certainly found that in you & your team.
Turrell Building commenced a major overhaul of our old dark 1960's 3 bedroom one bathroom red brick veneer residence and turned it into a light and bright modern 4 bedroom home with ensuite and a wonderful outdoor living space. Recommendations were made along the way as to what building materials and suppliers be used to ensure that the finishes to our floors, windows and walls were first class. We would really recommend the renderers, as they did a fantastic job on rendering over our red brick house. Neil project managed our build, and was pleasant, courteous and professional at all times. Aaron and Scott came to the site daily and were pleasant blokes who got on with the job. Whilst we were at work we knew that our project would continue in a trustworthy manner in our absence, with the mobile phone getting a work out! Thanks Matt!! We lived in the house whilst all the changes were going on around us, which at times was quite difficult, but the boys always respected our space, and asked our opinions about any changes that became necessary along the way. Neil recommended some small internal changes to our living space which cover up "clutter" that would have existed otherwise. Neil would always get any small problems "sorted" and we thank him for that! We recommend if you use Turrell Homes & Building to get your next job done then summers a great time – our team would have won Tradie’s of the Year if they’d entered the competition!
Peter and janice Didlick
Quality, Professionalism, Innovation and Attention to Detail are the hallmarks of Turrell Building Services. Our project was a virtual re-build of the interior of our home plus the inclusion of an al fresco dining area and kitchen. Neil’s design work was not only innovative but also achieved our objective of creating a new home without the need for a total re-build or to re-locate. His support throughout the exercise and the introductions to his network of ancillary trades made our decision making so much easier. His costings and PC Allowances were spot on and left us with no surprises! The on-site team of Rich (the perfectionist), Matty (the quiet achiever), and Jas (“make ya laugh til’ his ribs hurt”) will always be a part of our family and their professionalism and quality workmanship is second to none. Our thanks also to Ian (Plumber), Greg & Trent (Sparkies), Lorenzo & Matt (gyprockers) Adam (painter), Scotty (renderer), George (Kitchens), George (Tiler) and their teams. We have no hesitation in recommending Neil and the Turrell’s Group and would welcome any of his future clients to visit our home and see first hand the quality of their workmanship.
David, Sue & Matt Upton
This is a short note to thank you for the great job you and your staff have done in building our alfresco area. As a business owner myself I note how lucky you are to have great staff like Josh and Alex and others who conducted themselves professionally and diligently whilst working on our property. Of particular note was their attention to keeping us informed, cleaning up and being respectful of our property which was greatly appreciated. We also appreciated their supervision of third party tradesmen that were occasionally on site. The job itself was complicated by a client who kept moving the goal posts and a great deal of bad weather, however, despite this you delivered on what you quoted and what you promised. We would have no reservations in recommending you to other potential clients.
“Turrell Building Services” provided us with great end to end service. We were unsure of exactly what we wanted at the start and Neil Turrell worked through the process with us from the design stage, right through to the final landscaping of the finished product. We were thrilled with the outcome. The outdoor room and deck extension (Alfresco Area) enhanced our lifestyle and optimised our use of the pool and tennis court areas. Everything was built to seamlessly integrate with the existing floorplan, architecture and finishes. His people are all quality tradesmen who respected the fact that they were working around a busy family home. We would have no hesitation in using Turrell’s on a future project”.
Mr and Mrs Saldor
To anyone considering building or renovating their home. We had a challenge on our hands when we purchased a double story red brick house that we wanted to turn into our dream home. We knew what we wanted in terms of design but needed a well qualified, experienced, and quality builder that could transform this red brick house into our home. As you do, we embarked on an extended research program to find a suitable builder. We had not heard of Turrells when a friend suggested that we contact them. We met Neil and also Brad and they were not like any other builder we had found in our own research. These guys turned up to discuss our project and not only came well credentialed in building but had great ideas that we used to enhance our home because they understood the theme of what we wanted for our home. Therefore after our own selection process we elimated all the other builders we interviewed and decided to award our project to Turrells. From day one Brad was our Project Manager and we were kept abreast of all stages of the renovation. Also as we progressed both Brad and Neil came up with suggestions to help us and ensure that what we were renovating was in keeping with our objective. But also along the way it was the "1% ers" that Brad just did to truly make this renovation a success. Brad is a perfectionist. On one occasion a wall was just not perfect so he just pulled it down and started again. Brad's project management skills are excellent, not only did our project come in on time and within the budget but we have ended up with a fantastic home well beyond our belief. But, that is our view. Everyday people walk past our home in amazement at the transformation of our house into our dream home. They just cannot believe the quality of the workmanship and the end result. We would have no hesitation in recommending Turrells for any building project and indeed have done so already based on our experience with them.
Peter and Sue Van Den Broeke
We would like to take this opportunity to sincerely thank you for ensuring our initial vision of some form of part cover for our pool was realised into a pergola covering some of the pool and surrounding area together with a workable deck area for adequate seating. As a result, we now have a fantastic outdoor relaxation and entertainment area protected from the hot westerly afternoon sun. Josh, who both project managed and worked on the project, was extremely pleasant and professional on a daily basis. It was also encouraging to know that the work continued whilst we were at work in a most trustworthy manner. Consideration was even given to the little things in ensuring our dog was well cared for and not allowed to roam away from home through unlocked gates etc. A number of alternate suggestions were made by both Neil and Josh both prior to and during the building period which, once the project was completed, certainly added those special final touches that otherwise would not have been there. We certainly look forward to Josh returning in October and again next year to continue the upgrade work.
Mr and Mrs Johnson
We recall our first meeting with you outside our nearly finished house. We were standing in dirt and looking down a hill with no path coming up. Now months later, wow....The entire Turrells team has transformed our place into a beautifully landscaped front yard with a very impressive looking driveway. Our side and backyard also has been created as per our landscape design, and showcases the quality that your team is known for. We were very happy with Wade and his team. They were knowledgeable, courteous, and delivered with the highest quality workmanship. We have received complimentary remarks on the landscaping by all the visitors and guests. Would definitely recommend Turrells ... And we look forward to further magical transformations in the near future.
We are so happy with our newly renovated home created by yourself and your excellent team of staff. The girls love having their own space and we love that everything now has a place. Your vision and encouragement of transforming our previous 2 bed, 1 bath full brick home into a 4/5 bedroom home with 2 ½ bathrooms plus the fantastic outdoor deck (another living space) is an outstanding result for our family. We are so pleased that we chose the journey with Turrell instead of a knockdown/rebuild as the workmanship and relationship with our Project Manager, Josh, you and the daily team of tradespeople is faultless. The only disappointment we had was the February rain! When friends and family have come through the front door, the first thing they say is “wow”. At the time of building works, conversations we had with friends, colleagues and acquaintances of our experience often resulted in “wow, they sound like excellent builders” which lead to your number being passed on. I was pleased to read a testimonial posted on your web site saying “haven’t started on the garden yet” as we are in the same situation however we will have some new turf laid not before too long which will “finish” off the house. Again, THANKS Neil and team.
Annette & Shaun Pitcher
We would like to take this opportunity to sincerely thank you for making our vision of an outdoor alfresco entertainment area a reality. From the first point of contact with Neil Turrell we experienced total professionalism and expert advice. From the start of building right up until completion Richard managed the project seamlessly and he and his team of Matthew, Jonny and Jason displayed amazing work ethic and were always courteous and friendly, even when under extreme pressure with our toddlers, Harry and Emilie, watching their every move! Richard’s experience was immediately obvious to us, which was very reassuring. He consulted us regularly on progress and was very receptive to any minor changes and innovative with his ideas. The site was kept tidy and safe through the entire process, which was important to us with two toddlers in tow. We can honestly say that we absolutely made the right decision in engaging Turrell and look forward to discussing further projects on our home with you in the future. We would, without hesitation, recommending yourself and your team to anyone contemplating a building project. Look forward to seeing you all again soon.
Les, Sandra, Harry and Emilie Blake
We used Turrell Building Service for our recent renovations to our back veranda with outstanding results we now have a comfortable, beautiful area for entertaining or just every day use, the fireplace means we can use it all year round. Turrell’s have provided us we a professional service right through the work and gave us lots of creative ideas to improve the look and functionality of the area. Josh was the supervisor of the project and he went above and beyond in this role, nothing was ever too hard and he regularly updated us on the what was happening. We have no hesitation in recommending Turrell Building services.
Louise and Martin Duursma
To proceed with renovations on our property was a major decision for our family and therefore we needed to be satisfied that the builder to be entrusted with such a project was able to follow through and complete the job to the standard that we could only dream about. We knew that from previous renovation projects undertaken by our friends that Turrell Building Services was such a company to enable us to feel comfortable in getting the job done. From our first meeting with Neil Turrell we were put at ease that our renovations would be handled in a professional and timely manner. The Turrell Building Services team were able to complete our renovation project to a superior quality of finish which has transformed and updated our house into a home that certainly stands out in the street. We are extremely happy with the completed renovation project and we highly recommend Turrell Building Services.
Craig and Susan Brown
Turrell building undertook our home extension. Before we started our project we were apprehensive since we had heard all the usual negative stories around builders and the process of major renovations / building homes. We have been pleasantly surprised. Neil and his team delivered on their promises on time and in budget (nearly!!). They were all polite punctual and courteous, and their workmanship was excellent. They managed to maintain a sense of humour under stress and were full of helpful suggestions when we were looking for answers. We would be happy to recommend them to anyone looking to undertake changes around their home.
Nitin and Anu Kataria
Just a short note in appreciation of all you & your team did for us this year building our new home & cottage. I am amazed at how effortlessly the project went from design to completion. The complete package was what we asked for and that is what you delivered. With the gentle guidance of Paul & Jeff on matters of building, the amazing talents of your interior designer, Sharon, the precision of your electrician Trent & team & the expertise of yourself to the finishing touches has meant that our home is a dream home. All the contractors you use & suggested to me to use were all professional & skilled in their trade. Nothing seemed to difficult. The team you have and your guidance meant that our dream became a reality with a solid well built house which is a pleasure to live in as well as look at. I am sure with the business you have & the service you offer you will go from strength to strength.
Just a quick note to say thank you for the fantastic work you did for us. We are very happy to recomend you and your team to anyone and everyone. Firstly, your advice and expertise was honest and well considered. You understood our requirements and implemented these perfectly. Secondly, the team you have assembled are a wonderful group. Many thanks go Joshua, Mitch, Paul and Grant. All of these people have displayed the same qualities that you have, honesty, integrity and professionalism. Furthermore, it t the least, the best endorsement we could bestow, would be to say that at any time in the future, with this house or our next, new or old, Turrells will be our first call if we need work done. Thanks again, good luck and best wishes
Robyn & Mark Woolsey
Last year Turrell Building Services did a major renovation of our house. This involved building a new extension family room with an adjoining decked area, converting a garage into a new bedroom with en suite bathroom, plus building a new attached garage. The work done was of the highest quality. Neil Turrell has a number of teams which do the work and this allowed the job to commence very quickly, unlike another of other builders we approached. The job commenced within days of us obtaining council approval. Once started, the job was done within the time frame that Neil originally stated. The work was done with minimal disruption and the team allocated to our job was friendly, courteous and prompt. The team leader, Brad, always kept us informed of what was going on, what would happen next and when. He was very friendly, efficient and helpful. He advised us of various options, and suggested changes to our plans that were appropriate. The job was done for the price originally quoted, subject to minor changes and extras we requested during the job. One year on we are very happy with the renovation and would gladly recommend Turrells to anyone.
We couldn’t have had a better team working on the renovation of our house. In particular we would like to thank Richard for his dedication to the role of Project Manager. From the outset Richard and his team of Johnny, Matt and Jason were extremely friendly and courteous and made us feel welcome on site to discuss matters as things moved along. Richard made sure each trade did a first class job for us and was in constant contact to discuss the smallest of details and guide us through our renovation and extension. We felt very confident of a good outcome with your professional team. When it came time for the landscaping Wade and his boys did a great job in creating a new look for the property. An aspect we really appreciated were the contacts you had with people we needed to get a good final result such as Anton for the pool and Brett for the blinds. We were delighted to achieve an outcome beyond our expectations and thank Turrell Building Services for a job very well done.
John & Isabelle Fletcher
We wish to sincerely thank you for the outstanding work Turrell Building Services has recently completed on our home. Neil, you have a wonderful gift of creating and brining visions into reality that surpassed anything we could have dreamed of. Your renovation has totally transformed our home into modern, open and spacious indoor and outdoor high quality living areas that flow effortlessly into each other. We feel like we have a new home and are absolutely thrilled with the results while thoroughly enjoying our new ‘resort’ lifestyle. It was a delight to have your builders Paul and John work on our renovations. Their attention to detail, quality and service were exceptional. They met every challenge with great humour and smiles, their integrity and willingness to accommodate any request were greatly appreciated. In fact, every sub-contractor that worked on our job we would highly recommend. There is no doubt that your quality workmanship and designs have added substantial value to our home. It has been a pleasure working with you and your wonderful employees who are both a credit to your company’s integrity and to themselves professionally and personally. We would have no hesitation in offering our home as a testament to your company’s commitment to exceptional quality for any prospective client. With our sincere thanks.
David and Julianne Polkinghorne
I am writing to you to express our thanks for the work that your company carried out recently. We had some major improvements made with a new deck being installed, the complete house rendered as well as all new windows and an extension carried out at the front of our house as well as a new flat roof at the rear of our home. We found that the initial quote was explained in full detail with any additions or changes explained at the time, and the work was carried out efficiently and professionally. Your project supervisor Josh Brown was excellent in his explanation of what was to happen and when and we could not have asked for a better person to carry out this role. He was courteous and professional at all times along with all the contractors that were used in this project. Initially we along with most people would be unsure of who to use when you want to have renovations done to your house. I would thoroughly recommend Turrell Building Services and his team for any home renovations that you may be considering and would be available to discuss my recommendation at any time.
Shane and Jennie Voigt
I can't believe this addition project of a new CLUB/ GUEST HOUSE is finally complete! What will we do without the noise & action on site!! Both Amanda and I as well as the kids want to THANK YOU and your extended staff for building and completing an incredible addition for us. We are real happy with the results!! I want to compliment you on your professional work ethic to get the job done properly and your attention to detail. This was a very large project for all of us and I feel it went quite smoothly. It was great how you interpreted our ideas and needs and then made them come to life. We also appreciated your attention to costs so we could all keep a clear focus. As I have told you numerous times this enhancement to our home is first rate , and it certainly suits our large family lifestyle. You should be very proud of this project and we would gladly (as we have already) recommend you to others. Again, many thanks for a job incredibly done,

To Whom it May Concern My dream of opening up the back section of our two storey brick 92 year old home was overshadowed by our lack of building knowledge and horror stories of renovations gone wrong. My sister and I had seen a moving T.V.program where many tradespeople gave their time to help a deserving family remodel/build their home. This gigantic task was coordinated by a Project Manager from Turrell Building Services. This was why we concluded Brad from Turrell’s was the expert builder we would trust with our project. Brad and his team proved to be just as professional and expert as we could have hoped. Wonderful stress free job done by Turrell Building Services.
We were very happy with the outcome of our renovation and are of the view Turrell is a very reputable and competent building company. We were very pleased with all the people who attended our home, and you know how highly we think of Brad. You all did a fantastic job and it is lovely to have a renovated home at last. We wish you all a Happy Christmas.

We contracted Turrell to deliver a large outdoor extension and some internal works to our home and found the process to be pleasing. The quality of workmanship was high and the job site was kept extremely clean. Josh worked directly on site and was very receptive and responsive to any queries we had about the job and we worked easily through several decisions which needed to be made mid project for a great result. We would definitely use Turrell again in the future

We used Turrell Building for our recent rebuild. We ended up with one remaining wall so maybe I should say new home. Firstly, I would like to thank you Neil (and Brad) for making this possible, because before I met with you the project wasn’t going ahead. Neil you were easy to contact and willing to work with me to make this possible, always with our budget in mind. Brad was our project manager with his team Ben, Shannon and Dan. The project didn’t always go smoothly due to the size of the project and the amount of detail in the project, however Brad with his easy going nature, inventive ideas, and strong work ethic managed to combat any arising issues. Brad always kept me well informed and up to date on the progress. For all Brad’s team and sub-contractor’s, nothing was ever too much trouble, and everybody was always polite and willing to discuss any areas of the project with me. Turrell Building’s follow up has been outstanding and I would certainly have no hesitation in recommending their services.

I have received the Occupation Certificate and can now tick this project off as completed – on to our next adventure whatever it may be. Can you please pass on our thanks to Josh, Tim and Mitch for the way the Project was handled and completed. I must commend Mitch as a young person with great potential. Attitude, commitment and dedication are super traits that the boys possess. We had some minor issues during the construction, but overall these paled to insignificance when compared to the achievements attained. We are very happy with the construction and again thanks to you for your assistance in design and your patience with us in our battles with Council etc. Keep well and we wish you all the best in the Carbon Tax challenges ahead of us all.
We have recently added a first floor to our home. The work carried out by Turrell Building Services was excellent each step of the wya. This included the initial planning stages with Paul Duff through to the actual building work, overseen by Brad Trethowan. The whole process ran smoothly and considering the amount of work we have had done it was without drama. Each of the contractors who arrived to complete various parts of the job were very professional. They arrived when we were told they would and produced work of an excellent standard. Brad was excellent in that we could call him to clarify any questions that we had and he would either follow it up immediately with the appropriate person or come to the house to discuss the issue further. We have had many comments from visitors to our home about the work and that it looks like the first floor has always been there. We would strongly recommend Turrell Building Services because of the quality of work that is produced and also the ease of which the job is organised. We are more than happy to recommend the services of Turrell Building Services to prospective clients.
