Villa Guadalmina

Our lovely clients from Germany were keen to update their Andalusian villa.

Having that keen eye for detail and intent on hiring a company that could meet their exacting standards, this couple asked to view other completed projects before deciding on the right company to renovate their villa.

Choosing your Builder

During these viewings, the clients were able to see for themselves the standard of workmanship, quality of construction and attention to detail in the finish of the completed projects.  They were also able to talk to the owners and ask them what the builder/client relationship was like, whether projects were completed according to the brief and if they came in on time or not. Suitably impressed, they instructed ProMas Building to undertake the complete remodelling of their villa, inside and out.

Making sense of the internal space

The property was over 40 years old and the internal layout simply did not work.  You had to walk from the entrance down a narrow corridor, past bedrooms and a kitchen in order to find the living room at the back. Despite a lack of connection both inside and out, there was a lot to like about the style of this old Andalusian villa. The authentic Spanish roof tiling and the centralised position of the property in its generous plot, gave the architects a solid starting point.  They began by moving the entrance to the centre of the house where the garage used to be, making a beautiful hallway and cloakroom.  To the left of the hall they designed an open plan kitchen, dining and living room. The right became the bedroom wing, each bedroom having an en-suite and patio doors.  This enabled the bedrooms to look out onto the garden.

Creating a usable outdoor space

Outside nothing worked. The garden was sloping in all directions so the clients could never use a table and chairs other than on the terrace.  The architects, in collaboration with the clients, decided to create five different areas in which to enjoy the grounds.  Firstly, retaining walls were built to make two flat areas.  The courtyard was modernised to connect to the house. A decking area was built around the palm trees and a more generous swimming pool was built with sleek new tiling, creating a beautiful place to sunbathe and relax.

Cocktails and Palm Trees

Our clients knew what they wanted from the start of this project in December.  By September, they were swimming in a beautiful new pool, supping cocktails under palm trees and dining alfresco on the terrace.  It is safe to say that their villa has been completely modernised yet still retains that wonderful Andalusian charm.  We wish them many years of enjoyment in their wonderful new home.

Testimonial

"Andy and his team did very professional work on my old house in Marbella, South Spain. High quality of refurbishment, good feeling for the owners wishes, keeping always an eye on the budget. You could rely on deadlines. The workers left the construction site every day very clean. Even not being on site every day the project was driven forward in time. They really did an excellent job. Event after finishing all the work Andy continues caring about the project."

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.
