“Clarity, calm surety and unbiased, trustworthy advice”

VerdeOeste have been supporting us through each stage of our multi-unit development project on the island of Santa Maria in the Azores. The remote island location, challenging topography and limited availability of necessary local resources have presented a variety of challenges, to which the VerdeOeste Team have found a sensible solution, without fuss.

We would not have been able to navigate the multitude of issues which have arisen since this project was conceived without the expert guidance, direction and support we have received from Luis, John and their team and diverse range of contacts. They have provided clarity, calm surety and unbiased, trustworthy advice throughout every phase of the process, for which we are extremely grateful. 

I have no hesitation in recommending VerdeOeste as a go-to, one-stop-shop for anyone considering a capital project in Portugal or beyond.”

“A vital blend of ‘can do’ and practical realism”

“The experience of working with VerdeOeste was a very positive one for the EmbassyVerdeOeste brought a vital blend of ‘can do’ and practical realism to our project. We found VerdeOeste to have a strong awareness and commitment to the need for cost control and adherence to deadlines, which was exactly what we needed.

We needed local support in the tender process and in evaluating potential contractors, and VerdeOeste’s ability to work bilingually on technical documents speeded up several complicated phases in the project. While the project was onsite, we had confidence in VerdeOeste’s oversight of  progress against agreed targets, and in their ability to manage the flow of communications to us appropriately.”

“Careful and strategic overseeing and coordination”

“By being involved in the project, VerdeOeste can deal with a number of issues related with the project management, allowing me to be better focused on the design of the building. Due to their extensive construction experience they can also support the design team through the development of the project and advise the clients to the best decisions.

“The demanding complexity of developing a project and building requires careful and strategic overseeing and coordination from a skilled team in construction. It is totally worth to employ a company such as VerdeOeste, the return is huge at the end of the project regarding cost control, time and quality.”

“The results of our projects were much improved the sooner Verdeoeste were asked to participate.”

“The service provided by Verdeoeste goes beyond the general idea that persists regarding project management; It is a service based on a clear understanding of the objectives outlined by the owner, founded on strong knowledge of and contribution to all aspects of the project. They strictly respect and are totally dedicated to fulfilling those objectives. Verdeoeste’s strengths – proactive stance, competence in addressing all issues, constant availability and support, the understanding that a building enterprise is a process to be carried from the beginning (as soon as the idea is set in motion) until its conclusion – are an invaluable asset for us, as designers, as they should be for any developer.”

“Ability to keep things moving forward”

“As newcomers to the Portuguese market, we were keen to appoint a professional manager with local expertise to help us negotiate the planning regulations and appoint the best resources to complete every aspect of this exclusive development in the heart of Cascais, from construction through to completion.

We met with John and Luis at VerdeOeste and it was immediately obvious to us that they would be our ideal partners as they clearly understood the vision for the type of project we wanted and we were reassured from the developments they have already completed, demonstrating the standards we could expect from a project under their guardianship.

We have been impressed with their recommendations for professional services, their local knowledge and in particular Luis’s ability to keep things moving forward all the time. We are confident that under VerdeOeste’s direction, our development will meet the highest of our expectations on time and budget.”

“Great help”

”Renovating a house in a country where you don’t know the language or the laws, rules and regulations can be a challenge. VerdeOeste have guided us through the tricky process of getting all permits and have been of great help when it comes to managing the project and making sure that deadlines are held.”
