Our Story

An end-to-end residential property solutions company, Invergo Group specialises in Prime Central London real estate acquisition, construction and management. Over the years, we came to recognise a common need amongst our clients in this unique market, which is property renovation. In response, Vertigo was formed as a full service construction company, providing clients with reliable contractors, expert advice through consultations, project management and assistance at every stage of the process. Our real estate professionals guide clients in decisions that will increase the value of their property and bring their project from vision to realisation.

At Vertigo, our flexible approach allows us to take on projects at any stage of development. We ensure that our clients are supported by a well-rounded team to meet all their design and build needs. Our scope ranges from initial ideas in need of development, comprehensive designs that are ready for execution, and anything in between. Each project is assigned a dedicated project manager who is available to attend design meetings, offer advice on planning decisions, and assist the client at every step along the way. We actively manage the entire process for each of our clients according to their vision.

Project Manager


As a project manager, Antonio works with clients on day to day tasks, ensuring that their needs are met on time and in the most cost efficient methods. He manages a panel of consultants, including structural engineers, mechanical and electrical engineers, architects and lighting engineers, to coordinate solutions for Vertigo projects.

One of his grandfathers was an accomplished carpenter and the other a skilled stone mason for historical Portuguese UNESCO sites, including a monastery and a convent. They taught Antonio to look up and admire the structures around him, which inspired his love for understanding the process and fabrication of buildings.
