The do's and don'ts
After searching for your ready-made dream home you may come to the conclusion for whatever reason that the best way to acquire the right villa in the right place is to build it yourself. For those who wish to embark on this exciting venture we would like to make the following suggestions.
The architect you employ should be familiar with Central Alagrve and the particular building regulations related to the resort and also should have a good relationship with the technical department of Municipal Council to ensure that the project runs smoothly from start to finish. There are numerous architects of different nationalities who regularly produce designs for this area and understand the special requirements needed. We are happy to introduce you to the architect who is best suited to realise your personal tastes and concepts.
The project manager will be responsible for all of the technical and practical aspects of planning and constructing your new home. This includes finding a builder, handling tenders, ensuring that the building work keeps to the time schedule and that quality standards are met. He will work closely with the architect and the builder through the whole of the construction period and will be your key point of contact. We are able to introduce you to some of the many independent project managers in the area who are familiar with Quinta do Lago and surrounding areas and have good contacts with reliable sources in all areas of the building trade.
