Equal levels of care were attributed to the restoration works as was the contemporary addition. Fortem Projects coordinated all aspects of the project from landscaping and pool to window furnishings. This ensured a smooth and coordinated project where

Fortem Projects were fabulous on all fronts

Having purchased a lovely old but rundown Victorian house in a good location, I needed a builder to guide me through the process of updating the house.

We were drawn to working with Fortem due to their professional ethos and attention to detail. 

Throughout the whole experience the Fortem team were respectful to our timeline, cost and efficiencies. We found that it was a collaborative process and that the Fortem directors and tradespeople were knowledgeable and passionate throughout the entire build.

From the very beginning of our association with Fortem we knew we were in good hands.

We felt listened to and we were able to achieve everything we were after in our renovation. Timelines were adhered to and there was unfailing attention to detail and pursuit of high quality finishes.

 Lucy, Lysterville Avenue, Malvern

We had approached two other builders before being introduced to Fortem Projects.

We wanted to commence our build as soon as possible, and Fortem gave us the opportunity to do this and make selections along the way, while ensuring our timeline and budget were adhered to.

I now have a house that has been uplifted and refreshed throughout.

I have recently moved back home after a 10-month major renovation to my two-storey contemporary home in South Yarra. I love it. Bower, represented by Anna Dutton, were the architects and Fortem Projects, lead by Chris Curtain and Stuart McFarland, were the builders.

Fortem made a process I was dreading, incredibly easy

To be honest, I was dreading the whole experience of having my house renovated. So you can imagine my surprise to find the process incredibly easy.
