Our vision and values

And how we put them into action

Our vision and values are a statement of our mission and principles and provide our clients, staff, prospects and suppliers with a clear idea of who we are.

David Sillence, Director

"My ethos is that our clients always comes first and this core value underpins all we do at Sillence Hurn."

We believe in building great relationships with our clients, treating all people with respect and delivering our services to a high standard – no different than I would want to be treated myself. By personally working with our clients we understand their needs which enables us to use our expertise to assist, guide and advise them, whether they be a landlord, tenant, purchaser, developer or homeowner; we always seek the right, individual outcome for them, intuitively.

My specialisms in dilapidations and party wall matters entail a high level of negotiation, invariably with other surveyors, and my experience has shown me that an amenable, fair and open approach allied with conviction and deep knowledge of the subject matter is a proven and effective way of achieving successful outcomes.

We have assembled a strong, dedicated and enthusiastic team at Sillence Hurn, offering a wide array of experience and knowledge of the building surveying field. It is something that both myself and my fellow Director Alex are proud of and which we are keen to sustain, develop and expand for the benefit of all of our clients now and in the future.

Alex Hurn, Director

“At Sillence Hurn we are keen to do things differently. Moving away from the surveying company of old, we are seeking to be your in-house property expert partner, on-hand or at the end of the phone (or email) to assist you."

We promote flexible working for our surveyors which is made possible by our cloud-based technology. This allows for our clients to receive the highest quality professional service for extremely competitive fees.

I am passionate about project management and working with entrepreneurial property people. Appointing and forming a well-rounded project team, problem-solving my way out of difficult situations and handing over a completed project are only a few examples of what each project entails.

Every project brings different challenges and new relationships which provides a constantly-evolving learning environment. Our team’s first-hand experience in delivering projects across a range of sectors - commercial, retail, residential and industrial - is sure to benefit you and your development.
