The Förtsch+Associates team is known for creating innovative design, high quality technical detailing and responsible project administration services to provide clients with lasting investments in property they can be proud of.
The partnership is built up from the synergy created by the complimentary skills and experience of its two partners; Reiner Förtsch as Architect and Barry du Plessis as construction law specialist and project administrator, as well as a highly motivated technical and administrative team to support them in the drive to create high quality architecture both in design and in the final built product.
The partners moved to Nelspruit in 1998 to participate in and complete the Mpumalanga Provincial Government complex as Senior Design and co-ordinating architect and Senior Project Manager respectively – Since the completion of the project in 2001, the partners have chosen to remain in Nelspruit and explore the opportunities in the Lowveld area and established their own partnership in 2003.

We build your project in a photorealistic setting, with actual contours and 3D imaging technology – we can bring it to life before a brick is laid on site.
3D contextual modelling is possible of the most intricate and detailed terrain – allowing actual virtual on site planning without destructive and costly blasting or site interference. We take pride in making our buildings grow from the earth and fit the sites as if they were meant to be there.
Hi-tech drone terrain scans superimpose your project in its real terrain setting.
