Construction Services

Our client’s needs are always at the forefront of everything we do and we are always striving for new ways to enhance and improve the customer experience for all the renovation, refurbishment and construction projects we embark on.

Our objective is to remove the concerns of long distance construction and deliver a stress-free and pleasurable experience for all our clients.

By acting as an integral part of the ownership experience, we will ensure you always make the most of your time in the mountains.

Designing & planning

Many years in construction has taught us that good up-front advice is a key first step to any construction project. From local knowledge of building regulations and law through to the specification of materials, construction “know-how” is a must. We work with a network of specialist design and architectural partners offering a full design capability, from structural engineering to interior decorating. Alternatively, we are also happy to work with your preferred design teams and consultants, should you require it.

Technical communication

Our use of a range of systems means that you can keep track of every stage of the project, wherever you are based. For example, we can create computer generated plans and designs so you can see what your property will look like before we even start and carry out frequent quality assessments throughout the project. The Pangea team will help you negotiate the complexities of the French system and allow you to draw from our extensive knowledge and turn your vision into a reality. Typical architectural and design services include:

  • Site surveys- Geometry, Soil surveys, Energy performance testing
  • Budgetary advice- Cost estimates
