About Us


The way we develop

Luck does not play a part in our development approach.

Preparation, analysis and selection of opportunities are core to our activity. Creative in our thinking we complete an extraordinary amount of research into prospective projects and developments allowing us to take on calculated planning and development challenges.

We target only the best locations, identifying areas of consistently good value in sustainable markets. In doing so we are able to reduce associated risk and enhance overall gain for both Sanctuary Group and our clients.

Sanctuary Group controls every aspect of the development process, including, feasibility analysis, site acquisition, concept and detail design, authority approvals, pre-construction reviews, construction, marketing and sales.

Our development projects span across a wide range of sectors including CBD rental accommodation, luxury apartments, suburban terrace homes, specialist office and retail projects and exclusive architecturally designed homes

From inception of a vision through to the reality of completion, Sanctury Groups’s commitment is reflected in our achievements, client focus and dedication to deliver.

Our Philosophy

We believe in open, honest and professional working practices.

We respect long term business relationships with our clients and pay close attention to details using the most cost effective material and suitable techniques for the properties and at the same time, delivering the highest quality.

“All fine architectural values are human values, else not valuable.”
Frank Lloyd Wright
