What is a new building project?

New construction projects are projects for new buildings or other constructions. The new construction is about creating new volumes on a plot of land or plot of land. 

Types of construction

We can distinguish different types of new constructions: 

  • Residential buildings.
  • Single-family houses.
  • Industrial buildings.
  • Civil buildings (town halls, administration…).
  • Service buildings (theatres, sports centres…).

In order to carry out a new building project, it is necessary to know the client’s needs, that is to say, the type of construction they require. Once the type of architecture to be carried out is known, a preliminary study must be carried out in which the client explains what they want and from this point the project is worked on. 

Once the new building project is clear, a building permit is requested from the Town Hall so that the work can be carried out. 

During the execution of the work, which has been contracted to a construction company, it is monitored to ensure that it complies with the theoretical project. 

Once the work has been completed, according to the deadlines agreed with all the teams, the end of work is carried out by the technicians, the construction is legalized and the building can be used.
