About Virtue Projects

At Virtue Projects, we pride ourselves on a professional approach to building – we allow the quality of our projects to speak for themselves.

The eastern suburbs of Sydney have been the epicentre of our clientele over many years, seeing us build, renovate and refurbish projects that are recognised for their high standard of quality, as well as the level of customer service our team has provided from start to finish.

Founding director Dave Klees has over 20 years of experience which have provided him with valuable insight into bringing together the right partners for each unique project he delivers. Throughout his building career, Dave has worked with large project budgets, structuring joint venture deals with landowners, and putting together complex planning applications for council approval.

Our build was a complex build as it was a design and construct, everybody from the Project manager to the company owners were outstanding. They finished the build before the completion date which was a massive effort as there was a huge amount of craftsmanship in the finishes”. “We are so grateful
