Some of the testimonials for Julian Record and the team

“Record Associates were engaged as project manager to support the redevelopment of an old industrial premises which we recently acquired to support our growing business.  Julian worked closely with me and our delivery team to understand our space and engineering requirements so the works delivered best value for money and crucially were undertaken within our tight programme.  A number of enabling works packages were agreed to progress the works whilst design was underway.  We also had to deal with some tricky decisions regarding how much to spend on repairs to the old building.  Julian’s knowledge and experience on all aspect was invaluable and helped remove large elements of risk and ultimately provided us with better value for money.”

“We’ve worked with Julian on two construction projects, both of which have been a long time in the planning and funding. As a charity we have to allocate resources wisely, and the project and construction management expertise provided by Record Associates has been a solid investment! Having been badly let down by a main contractor on a project Julian was not originally involved in, Julian was engaged to progress the project. Julian’s professionalism, knowledge and tireless dedication has been invaluable – without which we couldn’t have successfully completed our project. Julian is a pleasure to work with, and has provided comprehensive support along the whole development and building process. On behalf of the Trust and our Board I’d like to extend our sincere thanks to Julian and Record Associates and we hope to work with you again in the future”

“Hi Julian, Thank you very much for sending the report through so promptly, it’s a big help & will be a necessary part of the negotiations.  It was an extremely comprehensive report, so it took us a while to read and digest it! There’s no immediate questions as you’ve covered everything very clearly.Your report will be hugely useful in planning the works needed, and no doubt we will need to turn to you again further down the line. Thank you so much for all your help and doing everything so quickly. I hope it hasn’t been too much stress to fit it in?” Kind regards,



“ Julian Record has been a huge asset on the Abbey Stadium Leisure Centre project having advised the Council from the outset on the business case and the selection of the preferred development option though to agreeing a procurement strategy which addressed the key project risks and optimised value for money, competently administering the construction contract and ensuring that the right quality levels were being achieved. It was immensely pleasing to have completed this project on programme and within budget which has in large part been down to Julian Record and his team’s knowledge, experience and tenacity”

“Dear Julian, I’d like to thank you for all your hard work and commitment facilitating our move to Baskerville House which, given the complicated structuring of the leases and phasing of the works to accommodate the changes to our organisation, was by no means straight forward.  Overall we are extremely pleased with the end result, which was achieved at great value for money and with excellent client service.  Thanks again. Kind regards, Tim”

” Julian Record: Huge thanks for your full building survey of the farmhouse.  Thankfully it flagged up all those unknown issues which led to a price reduction to cover the cost of the works.  All in all, excellent value for money. “

” Thankyou for the Schedule of Condition you produced which was extremely comprehensive, well laid out and flagged more issues than we were aware. It will certainly protect us from having to address these issues ourselves at lease termination!

We were particularly pleased with your advice on the fit out of the space and how the layout should be changed to suit the growing needs of our business, provide better space utilisation, ventilation and natural light. “
