The first thing you should know about Bertch, is we look ahead. Whether it’s construction, conservation or creating a collection of investments, everything we do has the big picture in mind. For us, that means truly considering the long-term impact of a project, not only for us, but the people involved, the people it serves and, of course, the planet.
Our passion is grounded in patience. But once we commit to something, we drive our work forward with the kind of energy that comes from truly believing in its potential. Since our family’s first venture in wood, we’ve always had a pioneering spirit. We approach every project with a determination to excel and execute at a higher standard, beyond the norm. Because that’s just the Bertch way.

We are strategic about our investments, but it is more than working the market. We make sure every venture has long-term vision and ladders back to our values, no matter the economic climate.
Lasting relationships count, and we create ours by showing the people we work with they can count on us. We establish a partnership approach and through our actions make it clear that we are interested in their success, not just ours.
While sustainability takes the lead on certain initiatives, leaving the world better than we found it is an ethos that runs through every project. Not a box to tick, but a mission we take to heart.
We keep a keen eye on market changes and trends. By adopting the most progressive technologies wherever possible and providing buildings that meet or exceed the newest requirements, we maintain a competitive edge.
Investing can move at lightning pace, but our approach is years or even decades in the making. We believe building the future isn’t fast. It takes time and instinct to truly think forward. And the rewards are felt far longer.
