in the tourist, commercial, and residential sectors. Construction is the root of our
business.
Providing flexibility with interdisciplinary integration, our services include:
- Conceptual and schematic design, preliminary planning, budgeting, and
scheduling.
- Risk management.
- Project feasibility studies.
- Design and development.
- Construction master planning and specifications.
- Critical path management.

What we Offer
First Class Design
After a vast labor of research and development, we team up with our engineers and
architects in an exhaustive revision process ranging from the first draft to the approved
blueprints with one purpose in mind: designing spaces that meet our clients needs in
agreement with the latest tendencies in civil and architectural design and long-term
market demand trends.

Safety
The construction methods we implement always adapt to location related
characteristics and are studied to guarantee the highest resistance to local natural
hazards such as hurricanes and earthquakes.

Structural calculations, materials, and close on site supervision


Our structural calculations are made to comply with International Building Code
Standards along with Dominican and USA Building Code Requirements.
In the Dominican Republic, the Ministry of Public Works (MOPC) has direct control
through inspections to ensure that the approved blueprints are followed through during
the construction process. Notwithstanding, we take extra measures to ensure the
quality of the structures in our developments.
As a first measure, we verify the precision of our structural calculations trusting them to
the most qualified professionals in the industry. As such, we have worked with several
well-known engineers in the Dominican Republic.
Secondly, during the civil process, the quality of the materials we use is rigorously
assessed following plan specifications and our expertise with the industry standards.
From verifying concretes poured in the field for workability by slump test to lab
sampling to monitor resistance, our goal is to ensure long term endurance.
Each of our field teams is assisted daily by experienced superintendents who work
hand in hand with our multidisciplinary teams of experts. They monitor every step and
assess worker safety regulations, organization and accomplishment according to
timelines so that quality and time efficiency are always achieved.

Innovative, Practical Solutions


Challenges in projects demand careful planning and strategies that meet their specific
needs.
Novals expertise covers a wide range of fields allowing us to evaluate the defining
characteristics of each project to correctly determine what are the best constructive
solutions to maximize resources, identify potential short and long term savings, or
increase value for our clients.
Rather than relying on the most commonly preferred constructive and design methods
locally, it is our goal to provide practical, cost-effective alternatives that meet specific
project requirements. Whether it be evaluating market trends for the demand of units,
or deciding the most beneficial foundation system providing higher seismic resistance
based on soil characteristics, our work is tailored to satisfy government agencies, end
consumers, and investors alike.

Quality
Premium Materials
From infrastructure to housing, we pride on the skillful, cost-effective sensitive design
and quality of our long-term developments which are essential for sustainability efforts.
For our luxury real estate developments, we directly import many of our finishing
materials, which are produced by some of the finest European brands such as Emil
Ceramica, Panaria, Lea Ceramiche, Stosa, Composit, Duravit, Grohe, Hansgrohe
and Reser Ban. The quality of our selection is confirmed by the warranties offered by
itheir brands, with worldwide recognition.
Locally, we work with our own quarries, retail stores, and the best local suppliers
through our national purchasing department, which collaborates with our engineering
teams to carefully identify and select the best quality products suitable for each of our
jobs.

Excellence in customer service


From design to construction, all of our processes are customer-oriented. We pride in
maintaining open communication with our clients, to ensure that the final product suits
our clients needs.

Community Work
Because we believe that the building of a better world for all of us starts by what we
can immediately reach, the involvement with the communities that surround our
projects and offices is a critical component of our work. In this respect, we take
charge in community improvement by actively involving out resources in:

- Involving local trade unions when possible.


- Job creation within local communities.
- Environmental cleanup projects.
- Pesticides, fumes and other toxic agents control.
- Re-pavement and landscaping of surroundings.
- Donation of furnishings.
- Disaster relief.
