Adding value through experience and innovation.

Our focus is to deliver residential and commercial projects worth remembering.

We do this by drawing on our wide-ranging experience and technical knowledge established in the property development, project management and contract sectors. This ensures each project benefits from innovative solutions at every step of the development process.

We are passionate about partnerships and fostering working relationships.   We are open minded but remain focussed.  We embrace the new but have time honoured values.  We are committed but still have time for a laugh.  That’s the way it should be.

Our Difference

Our Staff

Our set up allows us to have a sharp focus on all stages of the development process.

Bridport shares an office with its strategic partner – SolutionsWon Group, which is a commercial project management outfit. Together we create an environment that includes developers, project managers, architects, builders and engineers. This gives us a unique ability to assess challenges and interrogate solutions from all angles, ensuring the best possible outcome.

Our Focus


One of our core values is to establish and foster lasting relationships with development partners, funding partners and consultants. We believe in collaboration and know that partnerships help to improve outcomes by having alternative views. These working partnerships are further strengthened by supplier, trade and industry relationships via SolutionsWon.


Our projects consist of residential and commercial developments which are well located within the inner and middle ring suburbs of Melbourne near transport, villages and entertainment. The size of projects we undertake range from as small as 6 townhouses to over 40 apartments. We have undertaken residential, commercial, child care and retail projects.

Project Management

Our extensive experience ensures all project decisions are made with the knowledge of cause and effect. We enjoy assisting clients to deliver their projects and can offer a tailored service to accommodate their needs. This includes all things from acquisition, consultant assembly, planning, marketing, funding, account keeping and construction management.
