Evri Group Evri Group is one of the largest private property investment, development and management companies in the Canberra and wider ACT region. Their wholistic success is attributable to its personal attention to detail, long ties to Canberra and its understanding of client’s end needs. Evri has a proven record of delivery with the majority of its portfolio development stock created from the ground up.

Evri Group’s experience dates back to the 1960s when it was founded by Euripides Sarris and now involves three generations of knowledge in the business. The business has organically grown from building small residential projects, to small retail/industrial buildings and then progressing in the 1980s on to larger scale commercial office buildings including high-rise apartment buildings and business parks with a focus on sustainability, quality, amenity and value.

Evri Group was and is also a major partner with the KDN Group known as NDH during this time jointly investing and developing in larger scale projects. Evri Group is fortunate to have large commercial tenants/partners such as the Commonwealth Government of Australia (Dept. of Finance, Attorney Generals Dept., Prime Ministers & Cabinet, National Indigenous Australians Agency), ACT Government, Thales, ANZ Banking Corporation, SAP, Canberra Private Hospital to name a few.
