    Project Management - Construction

    Building or remodeling a property can be a daunting task at the best of times, toss in a different language, lax building codes and standards, material differences and varying government regulations can add unwanted stress, increase costs and without proper management may still end up being a “money pit”. Having been down this road, the Beach Gringo STRONGLY RECOMENDS hiring an experienced local construction project management firm to oversee and manage your new build or renovation. It will be more efficient, cost effective and less stressful in the long run.
