Property Development Made Simple


We work with property developers and investors, supporting their success with dedicated acquisition, design, planning, project management and construction delivery services.


How Ortus Helps You.

Building is simple, we work to keep it that way.

Contributing from the outset, we support our clients with design based project viability, risk and cost assessment. A valuable second perspective underpinning their confidence in making informed acquisition decisions.


This early project exposure then naturally evolves into a clear project brief ensuring management and progress through design development and planning are focused and simple.

With this, more in depth exposure to a project, we're also able to make our own commercial decisions often sharing the early project risks. The simple benefit for our clients being we stand or fall based on what we deliver for them.

Our support, of course, extends beyond planning to provide construction information, tendering, contract administration and project management services. This ensures continued and seamless delivery through the full project cycle in line with our core belief of keeping things simple.

Beyond these traditional consulting roles, R&D is an important part of what we do. With experience in the delivery of off-site construction projects and low energy design we advise on the implications, hazards, and benefits of these emerging construction solutions.

Ortus strives to be at the forefront of this property development renaissance that will see tougher environmental considerations, further alternative construction methods, alternative housing solutions and technologies such as BIM and AI becoming more common. By leading on this we provide our clients with knowledge and confidence, to engage with this shifting environment, enabling them to plan their own development and growth into the future.

We’re architectural designers, we’re planners, we’re project managers, we’re negotiators, we appraise, we assess risk, we assess markets, we assess cost. We’re development managers.
