Why should you choose your civil engineer as constructor ?


Regarding the Greek law the Architect or the  Civil Engineer  submits the required designs /studies to the Planning Office in order to get the construction license .  At the end of the construction he/she is obliged  to sign a formal document which he/she submits to the planning office. Through this procedure he/she holds he responsibility that the construction was carried out in compliance with the submitted design/studies ,namely if a construction problem occurs the Architect or the Civil Engineer will face criminal charges.

Furthemore, some other documents which they have approved by Archeological and Forest office must be submitted to the Planning office.
In addition, we have also to submit the contracts after they have approved by registry office to the planning office.
An architect or civil engineer and a mechanical engineer sign the designs/studies which  have been submitted to the planning office.
At the end of the construction, the architect or the civil engineer and the mechanical engineer have the obligation to sign special documents ensuring that
the construction is according the design/studies that have been submitted to the planning office.
This practically means that they permanently carry the responsibility of the construction.
If any problem occurs to the construction at any moment, they will face criminal charges.
The above means that the owners must feel safe as the architect or the civil engineer would never risk his/her career.

The way our company of which iam CEO works as follows:
1. We cooperate with an architect with whom the client has a collaboration and arrange the architectural plans of the house.
2. The  civil engineer, Mr Karametos which is CEO of the company, carries out the designs/studies of the statics of the house.
3.  All these designs/studies from 1,2,  are sent to a mechanical engineer whom we have a collaboration with.
This mechanical engineer is the person with whom we also have a collaboration during the construction process.
Furthemore, in our office we have an assistant who is responsible for collecting  all the documents from Archeological office, Forest office, planning office
and makes any possible effort to advance the procedure and manage to get the license of the house as soon as possible.
Our company which has a lot of experience can get the license from the planning office in between 45-60 days(if architectural committee not be demanded)
If the above procedure is not followed probably the license will be approved between 4-6 months or more.

According all the above, if you cooperate with us, will have the following advantages:

1. the construction will undoubtedly not face any problem as the civil and the mechanical engineer will not risk their career.

2.the quality of the construction is quaranteed as we use the best materials and the best specialists to construct your dreaming villa/home

3.the time which is needed to finish the constrution from the day you buy the plot. The time for the construction of the house (not the surroudning area)is 12 months from the moment we get the license from the Planning office. In fact, the time that needed is not more than 8 months.

For example, 23th of September 2019 a couple from Belgium bought a plot in NorthEast Coast and 29th of August 2020 we handed over to them the keys to their home.
The whole project starting from the planning of the house untill completion was monitored by our clients via email as they were abroad.
Actually, they only visited Corfu once between 6th to 13th of July due to the Covid pandemia.

4. protection from ”hidden” charges
Our principle is to protect our clients from”hidden” charges.We know for many of our clients the money for the construction of the house has been saved through a life time hard work. We fully understand the anxiety of the potential clients and this makes us more responsible in order to protect their money. Many constructors who are not architects or civil engineers do not have any legal responsibility for the construction, make more attractive offers than mine but they burden you with extra charges which were not mentioned from the beginning.
This  results in  arguments and misunderstanding which are unpleasant for the clients.
On top of that, many of the above constructors  stop the construction process as soon as they got their profit. Consequantly, the client will face many problems and will have to spend more money and time to finish the work.
Our company is very proud for our 27-year-work  because we have the happiest clients and best testimonials from our competitors
as we have never abandoned or left a client of ours with unfinished work.

Our testimonials from previous clients approved our success in projects:
We want to be very honest and clear with our clients.

Last but not least , our clients will not waste their time travelling back and forth to Corfu and they will have no reason to be anxious about their construction.
The most important is as a civil engineer having the biggest responsibility, I do everything by the book.
