About Synergy Group of Companies Inc.

Forward-thinking People, Processes, and Partnerships.

Our business approach across the Synergy Group of Companies is to provide clients with all their commercial construction, interior build-out, and real estate investment, and development needs. We accomplish this through seven business units that operate in three core divisions:  Commercial Buildings, Innerspaces, and SynVest.

Each of Synergy’s business units operate independently, provide strategic diversification for our overall operations, and offer a distinct competitive edge to our clients when integrated on common projects. 

The combined ability of our different business units to service projects both large and small, and across all market segments, helps ensure that every project we complete benefits from our attention to detail and collective expertise—which encompasses everything from private market investments and design support to preconstruction services and furniture education.  

At Synergy Group of Companies, there’s nothing we love more than finding new ideas, stories, ventures, or opportunities and making them into something real.
