Quality of construction

The quality of construction projects and the issuance of Title Deeds is largely dependent upon the sequence and regularity of the developer’s actions. Customers interested in working with a reliable company should have a basic understanding of standard procedures. All work on the projects of Kaleide Property Group is a clearly planned out, which can be divided into several significant stages.

Stage 1: Consultants

Regardless of whether the company is building an office building, an apartment building or a cottage, the first step is always associated with the selection of project consultants. The main group of consultants includes:

  • Architect;
  • Civil Engineer;
  • Electrical Engineer;
  • Mechanical Engineer;
  • Engineer Estimator.

In some cases, the company attracts other specialists to the group of consultants:

  • Project Manager;
  • Fire Engineer;
  • Geotechnical Engineer;
  • Energy Efficiency Engineer.

For consultants involved in the implementation of projects of our company, the highest requirements:

  • openness;
  • high level of qualification;
  • sufficient professional experience;
  • focus on high performance and efficiency;
  • having teamwork skills.

All Kaleide Property Group project consultants are members of the Cyprus Chamber of Science and Technology (ΕΤΕΚ) and have professional indemnity insurance.

Stage 2: Design

At the next stage the engineers and architects involved in the project put together drawings with a detailed study of all structural elements. It is based on project documentation developed by specialists of Kaleide Property Group. It is important to note that engineering and architectural design is the basis for obtaining permission to conduct work from the Department of Urban Development and local bodies regulating construction and planning. In addition, on the basis of the documentation, the estimator draws up a statement of the volume of building materials required for the construction of the object.

Engineering and architectural design is a rather laborious and lengthy process, on average, taking about a year. This is largely due to the complexity of obtaining permits, budgetary and design constraints. Thus, obtaining a permit from the Department of Urban Development can be delayed for 3-6 months, after which you must wait for permission to start construction, which can take a further 4-6 months. In some areas, a construction permit is issued first and only then a permit from the Department of Urban Development.

Kaleide Property Group starts the construction of projects only after obtaining the necessary documentation and obtaining permits to start construction, which will avoid the difficulties associated with delaying the Title or the refusal to connect to the power supply.

Stage 3: Tenders

After drawing up project documentation, drawings and estimates, contractors are connected to the project. All work that the subcontractor and supplier must perform is specified in the bidding documents. Typically, tender applications are filed by 4-5 contractors, and the company’s consultants, evaluating all offers, determine the winner.

Requirements for contractors:

  • financial soundness and reliability;
  • sufficient experience;
  • availability of insurance;
  • a license for waste management;
  • a license for the type and size of the tender project.

Furthermore, the contractor must be a member of the Board of Registration and Control of Construction Companies.

After the winner of the tender is determined, Kaleide Property Group and the contractor conclude an E1 (A) agreement — a basic contract for the construction of a project with volumes, developed by the Cyprus Construction Contracting Tribunal (CyJCCT).

Stage 4: Construction

After the conclusion of the agreement, the contractor proceeds to construction work, which is conducted under the supervision of specialists of our company. Project consultants monitor the construction process and visit the construction site at least once a week. Kaleide Property Group works closely with the contractor, providing it with the necessary information on the project. Our consultants document the changes made and participate in the selection of materials.

Depending on the complexity of the project, the features of the object being constructed and the availability of materials, construction work takes from 1.5 to 2.5 years. Our company is trying to create the most comfortable conditions for communication between the contractor and consultants, which allows us to speed up the implementation of the project.

Stage 5: Cover Documents

The final stage of the project — registration of property rights. The certificate of final approval (Certificate of Final Approval) is issued by authorized state agencies after the inspection and only if the construction of the object was carried out in accordance with the stated plans. If during construction, changes were initially made to the originally approved plans (for example, a swimming pool was added to the project), the documentation and drawings are revised, after which
