With sustainability, manpower issues and costs more and more on everyone’s minds, traditional construction no longer feels like the solution to many people looking to build their own home.
Furthermore, when we think about building something, we think about problems, hassles, bureaucracy, money, deadlines … in short, all the reasons why we should stay away and forget all about it.
Fortunately, evolution and knowledge are constantly bringing us alternative solutions in several areas, and construction is no exception. Most people have already heard about the concept of passive houses. Focusing on the use of renewable materials, respect for the environment and energy efficiency, these homes seem to be the natural way to go.
What if we were to tell you that, on top of all these benefits, you could have yours built in less than a year. How? With Ecoconcept – a new concept in construction that wants to revolutionise the sector.
Ecoconcept offers a one-of-a-kind experience in home construction by expediting all the procedures involved in the process. Their path combines technology, method, precision, processes, quality, and science, and is the result of lengthy research and numerous studies that allow them to build highly energy-efficient homes in just nine months. And if you decide to go for one of their model houses, rather than designing yours, the whole process is even further optimised!
Whether we have an architectural plan designed, just an idea in our head, or nothing at all; whether you want to build your forever home, a second home abroad, or a holiday home for you to enjoy or to monetise, Ecoconcept commits from the get-go to each project, ultimately working as your one-stop-shop for construction, where the ultimate goal is to bring said project to life.
With the head office in Vila Nova de Gaia, Ecoconcept has representatives all throughout Portugal and the plan is to open 20 to 30 delegations in the country by 2023.
One of those delegations will be in the Algarve and will open on November 19 in Faro.
“We are very excited and looking forward to taking the region by storm!” says António Alves, one of Ecoconcept’s founders and partners. “We know we have a lot to give to this region, and demand is growing here steadily, much because of all the expats that have heard about this type of construction before.
“However, whenever we come to a new place, we always work to find our place in that community – we don’t want to be outsiders, we want to belong, be part of it. Ecoconcept provides an evolutionary alternative to traditional building, so we are ready to educate, train, turn ‘artisans’ and other construction workers into highly skilled professionals, so that we can all grow together,” he adds.
