Sillence Hurn provided a detailed and insightful report, and were consistently available to contact regarding any queries we had. Their Planned Preventative Maintenance Survey gave us the long-term guidance we needed to help keep up to date with The Department for Education’s estate management requirements and any repairs or upgrade work that could be needed in the future.

Most building consultancies struggle with attention to detail & a commercial perspective. Since we started using Sillence Hurn, projects run more smoothly & the highly professional team mitigate costs & risks which well outweigh their fees. They are trustworthy, transparent, cost-effective & extremely in tune with all aspects of buildings & construction. They have managed our projects in relation to pre-purchase, design, surveying, bank dealing, building control, tendering & more.

Sillence Hurn has surpassed our expectations with the service they have provided, turning it around for us within a short time frame to avoid delays in completing on a lease this week. His team have always been available to support/reply to emails if he is out on a job, helping to plan a call when needed. Their input has been pivotal in us progressing to the next step of our new business and they don't know it but it's also my birthday so I shall have the best day now! Many thanks

I have been working with Alex & David for a number of years now, usually on dilapidations matters and subsequent project management instructions. On all instructions to date, Alex has been very professional, knowledgeable and user-friendly, achieving great outcomes on all instructions.

David and the team at Sillence Hurn have been fantastic for us. They turned around a pre-acquisition survey in really good time to fit with our time restraints. The survey itself was very informative and well put together but on top of that, the guidance and advice they provided both before and after the survey was formally issued was invaluable. We cannot thank them enough and would highly recommend.

Greg Goodman, Pre-Acquisition Building Survey

We are extremely pleased with the prompt and detailed survey provided by Sillence Hurn, which has enabled our landlords and ourselves to improve the structure, appearance and comfort of our new accommodation, and we have no hesitation in recommending their professional service.

Adrian was extremely knowledgeable and helpful and we will not hesitate to revert to you on this and any further matters that may arise.

Brian Lucas, Defect Diagnosis Inspection

Having expert specialists involved in a development project is important for us as lenders but often also for the developers themselves. Sillence Hurn will provide us the heads up with anticipated building issues, but this heads up supports the client in better managing their projects by being able to plan for these issues prior to them becoming one.

Daryl Norkett, Relationship Director

We regard Sillence Hurn as a reputable, diligent and capable independent consultancy and they have acted as trusted advisors to our property company in many aspects of the building industry. We look forward to the same service over the coming years.

Turnack Ltd

Sillence Hurn recently acted as Project Manager on our office refurbishment. They worked with us, listening to our objectives for the work space and provided ideas and solutions ensuring our needs were met. We were really impressed with the clear costings prior to the project commencing due to the detailed specification enabling us to proceed with a level of confidence. We built up a good rapport with Oliver and he communicated with us regularly in a clear and concise manner. The works progressed quickly on site and over the Christmas period to avoid disturbance to the day-to day running of our office.

We instructed Sillence Hurn Building Consultancy to act as Independent Monitoring Surveyor for one of our borrowers. It was important for us to have a firm which had project experience in residential conversions that were also based locally to the site. We found Sillence Hurn to be very informative, providing clear and concise reports at the agreed times.

Geoff is a fantastic support to our organisation, his wealth of knowledge and service is second to none. In my experience, it has been difficult to build trust with consultants and service providers but I do not have these concerns with Geoff. He always acts in the best interest of us as a client and is extremely reliable. I very much enjoy working with Sillence Hurn, I wish them an even more successful 2023!

Michelle Scrase, Major Works Manager

We instructed Sillence Hurn to assist us with negotiations on the dilapidations claim with the landlord. Sillence Hurn acted with professionalism and efficiency and negotiated a settlement that we were happy with. We would not hesitate to recommend Sillence Hurn.

A very professional consultancy; the surveyor we have been working with (Geoff) is very good and conveys information in a clear and helpful way.

Maylark Property Management

Sillence-Hurn were able to get on-site the next day to prepare a Schedule of Dilapidations that was urgently required. They were also very good at providing me with detailed verbal feedback at the end of the site visit that helped me to keep the process moving forward, whilst awaiting the submission of the final schedule. Excellent job all around.

Alex Winterburn, Kulite

We were recommended to Sillence Hurn for a Schedule of Condition to be done. We needed a quick completion on the project and Derek did a great job getting to site the same week and getting the report back quicker than expected. Highly recommend.
