We have been renovating, building, designing and project managing properties and developments in and
around Lake Como since 2006. We have many happy customers who have used out services and who now
use our company to manage their property in their absence.
With offices in Menaggio a wealth of local experience, good architects, contact with planners and staff fluent in several languages we can offer the complete project package.
We are aware that cost containment is a serious issue and building in Italy may come with its own "hidden"
costs. We therefore control all elements of the project and all costs are planned and known before hand.
Working closely with an owner at all times is a priority and open channels of communication, vital to the success of a project.
We have all heard disaster stories and reports of poor building experiences. We are more than happy to provide references from satisfied customers. Please contact us for details
We can offer a full architectural service for our clients. It can be quite a daunting task to design, apply for planning and then build a home in Italy. Whether you are planning to build your new home or are planning a refurbishment project we can help.
We offer a complete design service from appointing local surveyors and design consultation to a full architectural service including the preparation and submission of planning applications. This is different in each region and sometimes Commune, so experience is important.
NEW OR OLD?
A good question and each comes with its own considerations. We can assist in purchase of new builds and small modifications, all the way up to a complete build from concept to final furnishing.
As with any industry in different countries, there are always differences in both attitude, regulation,
expertise, materials, payment processes and health & safety. We are fully insured for all eventualities of
course, but ensuring smooth project management and process avoids any such issues!
Without doubt the basic principles are the same, but local knowledge and experience is essential. This is where we excel. See some of our locally completed projects.
We have a very experienced team of reliable and local professionals who have all proved their worth in recent projects. Managing a team of individuals, sourcing raw materials, using local contractors and ensuring excellent workmanship is key to our success.
