96 www.bus-ex.com January 08 Turner Construction’s Arlington, Virginia office brings even the most complex building projects to completion on time and on budget. Executive vice president Bill Brennan tells Keith Regan how it has earned its accolades Turner Construction is a national powerhouse builder with more than $10 billion in annual sales and like many of its regional offices, the Arlington, Virginia branch has developed its own expertise and carved out its own niche. The office serves educational, hotel and hospitality, office and apartment residential clients in the Washington, DC, southern Maryland and central Virginia region. A subsidiary acquired in 2003, Tompkins Builders, focuses on specialty government work—it recently completed the World War II memorial, for instance. The market is a busy one with a strong and growing private sector economy augmented by government investment and projects that can help pick up the slack in slower times. “It’s one of the best markets in the country with a lot of opportunity,” says Turner executive vice president Bill Brennan. That opportunity brings plenty of competitors and Brennan says the Arlington office differentiates itself by focusing on delivering the lowest final cost to project owners. “The owner doesn’t have to go out and hire a lot of program managers, consultants and experts to manage us,” he says. “We give a reasonable and honest first budget and work hard to bring the project in very close to that budget. We don’t market ourselves as cheap, but we like to think we deliver the lowest final cost when all the costs of a project are considered.” Turner can make that claim thanks to the investment it has made in developing its pre-construction group, the estimating and purchasing arm of the office that is made up largely of field professionals with fifteen years or more of experience. “These are professionals who can look at a drawing and figure out what’s missing and price that into the estimate,” says Brennan. “We are able to avoid or eliminate a lot of problems in the field.” Turner was tapped to be the builder of the Howard Hughes Medical Institute Facility (HHMI) even before an architect was selected. The 900,000 square foot laboratory research and support facility is designed to help accelerate the pace of major medical breakthroughs by giving the best scientists around the world a place to collaborate with a team of Nobel laureates and other researchers.
