Company Background

Turner & Townsend Australia has offices in 8 locations with approximately 200 staff. Turner & Townsend Pty Limited operates under the parent company Turner & Townsend plc, with the global head office situated in Leeds, UK.

Global Company History – Turner & Townsend was established in
1946, in Darlington, United Kingdom: originally named Turner & Ing after founders Cornelius Turner and Francis Ing. Turner & Townsend as it is known today was re-branded in 1956, shortly after Geoff Townsend was made Senior Partner. The early days of Turner & Townsend saw
the company expand across the UK quickly with 10 offices and 250 staff by 1978. By 1982 Turner & Townsend International was established, with their first international office opening in Johannesburg, South Africa. By 1994, 5 more offices were established throughout Africa and in 1996 Turner & Townsend expanded their global footprint, today operating with 65 offices, 2,200 staff, located in 29 countries across six of the world’s seven continents.

Australian Company History – The John Rawlinson Partnership was established in Perth in 1952. The practice provided cost management and quantity surveying services to the property and construction industry. Over the years businesses were set up under the Rawlinsons name in all states of Australia and in New Zealand. The Rawlinsons Group Pty Ltd was formed in 2000 combining the operations of all states in Australia with the exception of WA. Turner & Townsend Raw- linsons Pty Ltd was newly formed in September 2005, with the merge into Turner & Townsend in May 2007. The Rawlinsons office in Perth remains a separate entity.

What we do

Our services are split into three key areas:

Whole life appraisals should ideally be integrated into the building design process from concept business case stage through to occupancy, or as part of your capital investment estates strategy. As the design process moves through each development stage, the options and alternatives evolve and are assessed in a whole life context.

Operating cost planning is a key part of whole life evaluation and must be embedded into the design process to ensure efficient day-to-day operating costs. Clear understanding of business as usual operational costs help drive robust decisions from a lifetime perspective by both the design team and client sponsor.

Renewable technologies are increasingly offered as options in major refurbishments or alongside strategic investments to drive down existing energy usage. They open up the potential to benefit from a range of incentives and tariffs.

We have the skills and knowledge to evaluate options from both a whole life and operational efficiency perspective.

We have developed a database that analyses a range of renewable technologies. The analysis includes a review of the positives and negatives of each application, the issues to consider and the capital, operational and carbon-related costs incurred to use.
