Monaco Projects offers a unique new product for clients in Monaco and the Côte d’Azur, the Property Pre-purchase Advice Service.
Rozz Marcel, MD of Monaco Projects explains: “we often become involved in a client’s renovation or interior design project after the property has been purchased, when the client has learned to their dismay that the modifications that they hoped to carry out will not gain the approval of the planning authorities, or that the works will cost significantly more than expected.
We can attend property viewings with purchasers to give immediate advice on the feasibility and costs of a project. This refundable fee-based service will give enormous reassurance to clients and help them buy the correct property at the correct price.” Please feel free to contact us if you are thinking of buying a property in Monaco.
I have been a project manager of luxury residential and business property renovations in Monaco and the Côte d’Azur for the last 15 years and I have been asked the question many times: why would I need a project manager if I employ a main contractor?
In response to this question, I liken myself to the conductor of an orchestra. You can have the best musicians in the world; however, without a conductor, your musicians will not start or finish at the correct times, and the music they produce will be discordant.
I help the client to select the most talented professionals for the project and oversee all aspects of the renovation works, from planning applications and sourcing products to management of costs to ensure that your renovation is completed on time and on budget.
To return to the conductor analogy, my role is to set the tempo of the orchestra and to shape their performance in order to produce a work of the highest quality for the client.
This has been particularly relevant in our current project, the creation of THIRTY NINE Monte Carlo (http://www.39montecarlo.com), a new luxury lifestyle members’ club in Monaco with state-of-the-art sports floor. It has been necessary, over the last 2 years, to organise in excess of 200 contractor and supplier “musicians” from all sections of the orchestra to create a harmonious symphony, ahead of its opening performance in September 2016.
Monaco Projects has just completed final commissioning of the 2 altitude training rooms at THIRTY NINE Monte Carlo http://www.39montecarlo.com, a new luxury lifestyle members’ club with state-of-the-art sports floor which is being project-managed by Monaco Projects.
The highly specialist equipment adjusts the oxygen and nitrogen levels in the air of the training rooms to simulate different altitudes. This enables users’ bodies to adapt to training with less oxygen at up to 4,000m above sea level so that when they “return” to sea level their body is “turbo-charged” with the higher levels of oxygen.
This training method provides a performance advantage to professional athletes and keen amateurs. It is just one of the specialist training aids being installed in THIRTY NINE, which is located on the Larvotto beachfront in Monaco, and which opens in September 2016.
It has been announced that the Caroli Group will be lodging planning permissions by the end of April 2016 for the construction of a major new development of 42 apartments, plus offices, shops, restaurants, bars and museums together with a pedestrian promenade at the end of the new breakwater beyond the former Monaco Yacht Club.
Work on this futuristic-looking development is scheduled to start at the end of 2016 and to be completed in 2021.
Are you planning a bathroom renovation, kitchen renovation or a complete apartment makeover? Gisela Burghard, a very experienced interior designer who joined our team with effect from 1 March 2016 will be able to help.
