Our priorities are, as well the quality of the construction, the application of the design throughout all the construction stages,as it was visualized from the beginning in the drawings. There are some basic directions on the construction that we, as experts, strictly follow.These concern the anti-earthquake regulations and are applied on the main static parts of the buildings. For the rest of what is needed for building a house, our experience has lead us through the years, to form a package of choices as far as the materials to be used are concerned which can give us a high quality of construction at flexible prices.
