A few words about us – (ABOUT HILMAR GERSIE)
My origin is in Stade, Germany. I graduated both from US Highschool as well as German Highschool (Abitur) and then I successfully finished my studies as Civil Engineer in the Technical University of Braunschweig, Germany.
In the year 2000 I started working as a Project Manager for a shop fitting company working in Germany, Norway, Poland, Holland and Denmark. Since I participated in a University student exchange program in Seville, I never lost the contact to Spain and in 2003 decided to look for a job in Andalusia.
Luckily I got the chance to sign contract as Project Manager in the building sector for a local company in Sotogrande directly in 2003, I was glad for this opportunity and never got to regret this decision.
In 2007 I started my own business. With my knowledge of Spanish, English and German I had built up a very reliable and competent team of employees as well as professionals and providers from the area and also Germany, England, Poland etc.
Please feel free to search in our Gallery to find some photos of some Projects in the sector of construction, reforms and project management of my company, but the best way to get to know me and my team is to have a personal meeting, that I look forward to ABOUT OFFICE Our office team consists of Lidia, Nicole, Julia, Jose Maria, David, Hugo and Hilmar.

ABOUT EXECUTING TEAM
At the moment we are 30 employees, we have the luck that over the last years we have been growing steadily, so most of our employees are with us for a long time.
A long term relationship is one of our main internal philosophies, which we think is very important especially here in Spain. You have to know that we don´t have an official schooling system in Spain for any manufacturing professions, so basically anybody can call himself a bricklayer. Since brick laying is not only putting one stone onto the other, but also for example knowing how to water proof, thermally insulate, which adhesive to use for which material and so on, this not existing schooling system does not work for us. We need to have long term employees who learn and understand our standard of quality building.
We are trying to give the best possible quality standard as possible, since that is our best long term advertisement. We feel that we can only achieve this by having good executers, which we cannot find easy on the Spanish free market.
