At Eco Kompakt, we offer a free initial telephone or e-mail consultation, and we are more than happy to provide estimate figures for your proposed project, based on the approximate scale and specification level given, from square feet or meter estimates.
We do not prefabricate container homes and deliver them.
Our container homes are constructed at the home-site, with approved Architectural drawings, detail and full permitting, in adherence with Costa Rican planning law, and with all fees and taxes paid, for permanent and legal construction work.
Pre-contract works, design and permitting.
When we have agreed a scope and budget with a client for a new project and a decision is made to proceed, our first steps are to procure all the necessary documentation and information about the property, for Architectural work and to accompany the permit applications to the Architectural Institute and Municipality.
Once we have all of the necessary information, we arrange to visit the property to conduct a site survey.
Under survey, we will note the general aspecting of the construction area for best design of roof shading, placement of glass, direction to views and of prevailing breezes etc, to create a design which best suits the conditions at the property.
We will take soil samples for analysis and measure the distances for connection to water and electricity infrastructure.
We will take note of any tree-work, excavating, fill work or scrub-clearing, necessary to enable a new construction, and so that we can cost accordingly.
Once all of this information is at hand, we will work closely with the client, to produce a final design, and when all is confirmed, we pass the project file to our Architectural partners to create the final construction drawings.
They forward the process through the Architectural Institute and Municipality to receive the final construction permits.
The cost of our pre-project permitting service is typically 5-6% of the estimated contract value and includes all fees to the Architectural Institute, Municipality and the construction workers insurance policy.
For new or custom designs on larger projects, we can provide life-like digital renderings of designs, and drone work at additional cost.
