What we do
Our objective is straightforward; Make your life easy and make the construction process simple, allowing you to realise your dream home in the mountains.
We understand that embarking on any construction project can be daunting and these concerns are often heightened when that project is miles from home, in a different country or time-zone.
Many of our clients have experienced a construction process at some point in their lives, whether that be on their principal homes or other properties in their investment portfolios.
Often, these experiences are less than positive and raise concerns about the prospect of undertaking construction works in unfamiliar territory. We are often asked how we deal with this process and some of the most frequently asked questions include;
“Where do I start?”
Pangea offer a complete “one-stop-shop” approach and will be the only contact you need. Our goal is to allay all your fears, making the construction process transparent and your life as easy as possible.
“How much will it cost?”
Cost is always a key factor. By involving Pangea from the off-set we can help to steer design and procurement to influence the costs – making your budget go further and reducing the risk of unexpected extras.
“Where should I source materials?”
We know how much things cost here in France, but are also familiar purchasing further afield. We are adept at determining the best procurement routes to meet your design requirements and budget.
“How will I find the time?”
We understand the construction process, from pre-construction to post completion and warranty support.
All our projects have a professional, dedicated project manager assigned as your single point of contact. They do have time to manage your project, not just attending weekly or bi-weekly meetings but are available on a daily-basis, problem solving, monitoring and acting as your eyes and ears on site. Their mantra is to treat your project as if it were their own.
“Who can I trust?”
Trust us. We have a proven track record for customer satisfaction as borne out by customer testimonials. Many of our customers continue to remain with us long after their construction projects have finished, benefiting from our property management services and remaining good friends.
