Our Sectors

Our in-built expertise work across the healthcare, defence, mixed use and logistics sectors and the calibre of our tier-one clients reflects the strength of our offering. Our divergent thinking is powered by market-leading intelligence and an uncompromising commitment to precision executions.

Our Difference

We create and deliver property development and investment solutions that are as innovative and unexpected as they are comprehensive and forward-thinking. Our difference is in our specialist concept-to-delivery skillset. We have proven capability from project origination and innovative capital solutions to transactions and physical delivery of projects.

With market-leading intelligence in healthcare, defence, mixed use and logistics, our origination considers the needs of our clients from both a qualitative and quantitative perspective. We are resolutely outcome-oriented; while others put the building first, we focus on solving the functional before determining the form.

Our capital connections are global, extending from the US private placement market to large-scale private investment funds in Asia. Our ability to deliver innovative, bespoke solutions on and off-market is matched by our expertise in managing complex transactions, delivering clients a complete financial package. Our experience across projects of scale has established an unparalleled capability in project delivery. The rigour with which we approach risk management has earned us a reputation for delivering on brief, on budget and on time.

  • The Hon. John Watkins AM, Calvary Chairman

    "This is a landmark project for Calvary and is by far the biggest investment we have ever made in a hospital anywhere in Australia. It is the biggest and most comprehensive private hospital ever built in South Australia and will redefine the quality and excellence of private hospital/health care in this state.”

  • People’s Choice Chairman, John Cossons

    "We’re reducing our total office space by about a third, saving several million dollars each year in rent, energy bills, maintenance and infrastructure — money we’ll happily reinvest into supporting our members. Going into this enterprise, we decided that we would ensure that the bulk of our investment into our new head office would go to SA companies.”

  • DPTI

    "Commercial & General are a team that works openly and pragmatically. Their ability to problem-solve and communicate at all levels, with the client and SA Government stakeholder groups is refreshing. An integrated developer and owner-led team, C&G delivered the government’s fitout in a structured manner, providing detailed design integration, cost management and probity. We look forward to C&G’s long-term ownership of this significant CBD asset.”

  • University of Adelaide

    "Commercial & General’s skill including innovative design concepts, application of their private capital and retained long-term ownership have been the key elements of the success of The Village working with our university’s strategic plans. The Village is a true success story of private and public organizational collaboration and is an example of what can be achieved when a university and the private sector work together.”
