Villa El Real

When a client is a chartered structural engineer, you know the eye is keen and the expectation is high!

These clients chose ProMas Building to refurbish their new holiday home in Marbella after a lot of background research.

Accountability

At first, the client only asked ProMas to build a new swimming pool and planned to use a variety of other trades to complete additional work that needed doing to the property.  After some initial meetings with the ProMas, however, it became clear that for reasons of continuity and accountability, it would be much better if there was only one company responsible for all works undertaken.  It is very difficult deciding who you can trust to complete such an extensive building project, especially when you are out of the country.  You do not have the benefit of hindsight. You do not want to ripped off or wait an unreasonable amount of time for the project to reach completion because you are not there to keep an eye on things. In the end, the client asked ProMas to take on the complete renovation. If you scroll down to the testimonial below, you can see for yourself that they were more than happy with this decision.

The Brief

The brief was to connect the ground floor and first floor.  Previously, they were two distinct apartments with separate entrances and no internal stairs. The whole layout needed a rethink; upstairs was to become five bedrooms, four with en-suite, a cloakroom and a living room and downstairs was to become a large open plan kitchen/dining/living room, and an 80m² games room with pool table, bar and TV area.

Outside

Externally, part of the roof was to be removed in order to create 100m² of terrace for sunbathing, sun downers and drinking in the view. The garden was crying out for a swimming pool and adjoining this would be an outdoor kitchen, housing all the necessary gadgets; a fridge, bar-b-q, wine cooler, sink, cupboards, shelves, as well as, a comfortable dining area and sofas for reclining. To improve on privacy, the walls around the property needed raising.

Swimming Pool

The stunning infinity pool is probably the highest specification swimming pool we have ever built.  Firstly it is heated, quite uncommon for this area of the world but extremely worth doing if you can afford it as it lengthens it’s use from five months to all year round. The clients opted for a salt water pool instead of it being heavily chlorinated.  This is gentle on the skin and much less salty than sea water. It has a  jacuzzi area with seating for 12 people with water jets designed to massage your back and thighs.  And for ease of maintenance, it has an electric cover. Perfect!

Testimonial

"We met Andy about 18 months ago after researching which company in Marbella would be capable of refurbishing our new holiday home in Spain. Andy is a true gentleman and his work force are a credit to him and his business. We would fully recommend Andy for any building project as he is both engaging and knowledgeable as are all of his subcontractors. Our experience was incredible and the outcome even better. The product and finish is second to none and this is coming from a very knowledgeable client with 30 plus years as a chartered structural and chartered building and civil engineer who has worked all over the world and has also knowledge of costs and design. Andy is now a friend and someone we respect."

There are not enough superlatives to describe how delighted I have been from start to finish in the work carried out by Promas and in all my dealings with them. They are in a league of their own as far as professionalism and integrity is concerned. Their standards are of the very highest and their work is exceptional. Andy leads by example and has treated our project as if it were on his own home. We have had many challenges which have been the legacy of previous inferior workmen. But Andy’s team have displayed huge commitment, resourcefulness, initiative and skill. They have turned a disaster zone into an outdoor leisure place of functionality and beauty. And all in record time and with complete attention to details and workmanship. I cannot recommend this company highly enough and would happily answer any questions if you need further clarification on any aspect of their work. They could not be beaten but don’t tell everyone as I won’t be using anyone else for future work so need them to have time to fit me in!

As an investor in real estate I had chosen Promas as the main contractor for a big renovation project of a Villa in Elviria and I am very happy to have made that decision. Andy and his team are really professionals. You can clearly see that Andy is fully involved in the project, has loads of experience and passing by almost every day to make sure all is going according to plan. Aside that, which I think within construction is unique, he never told me no or that’s not possible or no we can’t change the plans. Instead each time I requested a change of plans we easily found solutions to make it happen. So Promas thinks in your benefit, not in theirs. Finally and probably most important is that Promas finish the project completely, instead of running to the next project and leaving with some loose ends. So if you are looking for a construction company I can assure you that you won’t regret choosing for Promas. Thanks again Andy and the team!

So impressed with the service and quality of workmanship from Andy and his team at Promas. I got various quotes for the construction work at my villa near Marbella but by far away Andy was the most professional. Very pleased with the result of the work and I would happily recommend them to anyone on the coast.

We had the pleasure of using Promas Construction to totally remodel our 3 bedroom and 3 bathroom apartment in Reserva Alcuzcuz. We found Andy Promas and his team to be excellent and responsive. We set them a tight timetable for the work it was vitally important to us that they delivered, both on time and on budget. They passed this fundamental test with flying colours We were always kept informed of progress via a weekly video which was very reassuring. Andy really cares about his clients and his reputation. He deserves to be highly respected amongst his peers! The end result is excellent and much envied by friends and neighbours.

Promas building provided an absolutely outstanding service from beginning to end. The communication was exceptional throughout the project and they were responsive to changes in the planning and execution of the work. All design, building, electrical, plumbing and tiling work was done on time and to a high standard and I am delighted with the results. Most importantly, they seem to have a genuine passion for what they do and go to quite extraordinary lengths to ensure they exceed the clients expectations. I could not recommend them highly enough.

I have used Promas to do two large remodelling projects. Both time I have found the service professional and the end result is always of a very high standard. Andy is always quick to respond and I would not hesitate in recommending Promas for any building project big or small.
