Monaco Projects is a proud sponsor of the 2017 Champagne and Oyster Cycling Club (COCC) charity cycle ride that took place on 30th April.
The ride started at 8am in St Tropez and finished on the port in Monaco after 140km and 8 gruelling hours in the saddle for the 90 participants.
Monies raised from the event will, as in previous years, be donated to the Princess Charlene of Monaco Foundation. This year the charity’s focus is a first aid and CPR training complex in Loumbila, Burkina Faso, a joint project with the Princess Charlene of Monaco Foundation, the Monaco Red Cross and the Burkinabe Red Cross.
The facility will include an Aquatic Rescue Centre, financed by the Princess Charlene of Monaco Foundation, to allow the training of rescuers and lifeguards from Burkina Faso and other countries in the region. The mission will include a water-safety programme and swimming lessons available to the thousand plus local high school students, many of whom have never had an opportunity to be in a pool, but who are often at risk of drowning during floods.
Monaco Projects’ Managing Director, Rozz Marcel, was unfortunately forced to withdraw from the event at the last minute due to injury but was, nevertheless, on hand throughout the ride to give assistance and encouragement.
We are delighted to have contributed towards the impressive sum raised in this year’s event and Rozz promises that he will be in training very soon to ensure that he is completely ready for the 2018 ride!
Here are our hot tips for successful staircase lighting
Use low level lights to illuminate stairs. Consider using one fitting to highlight every, or every other, step for a stunning result.
Recess uplights into your staircase to create a dramatic effect with a functional use.
Suspending multiple pendants down stairwells at different heights is a great way of creating a real statement that goes beyond simply providing a means of lighting.
LED TAPE & EXTRUSIONS
Create a contemporary look to your stairs using LED tape and extrusions. Under light, up light or side light stairs and turn them into a real feature.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for further information about staircase lighting.
IMSEE, the Monaco Government Statistics Office, has recently released a very positive overview of the Monaco residential property market in 2016.
Sales of properties in the resale market for the year reached their highest ever value of €2.2 billion, an increase of 23.4% compared to the previous year.
The average price of properties has increased from €1.4m in 2006 to €4.3m in 2016, an increase of 212% during this period, with an increase of 21% from 2015 alone. 1 in 10 of all property transactions now has a purchase price in excess of €10m.
The average price per m2 on the property resale market has gone up from its 2006 figure of €14,784 to a 2016 cost of €41,420 with an increase of 15% in just the last 12 months.
Monaco Projects has seen a marked upturn in renovation activity in Monaco over the last year in particular and reinforced confidence in the local property market, confidence which looks set to continue.

Many congratulations from Monaco Projects to everyone in the PussyFootingAround Team for their amazing results at the end of the No Finish Line 2016 event.
The statistics are very impressive. Our top finisher, Adrian Mac Dermott covered 608 KM and finished 15th in the whole event. Each of the Rolfe children, Emily (233KM), Alice (170KM) and Izzy (147KM) finished 1st in their age classes.
Izzy even spent her 11th birthday doing laps and managed to squeeze in a birthday cake at the team tent.
She also managed to get a couple of hours’ sleep during the non-stop 24 hour session.
Overall each team member managed an average of 62km and the team ended up in 12th position with a very impressive total of over 6,000km!
Participants in this year’s No Finish Line event covered 392,516km, further than the target of the distance from the Earth to the Moon! This means that €392,516 was raised for the Children and Future Charity http://childrenandfuture.com/no-finish-line/. Well done to all concerned.
Monaco Projects is sponsoring the PussyFootingAround team, aiming to help it reach its fundraising target at the 2016 No Finish Line charity event that is taking place in Monaco from 12th to 20th November 2016.
No Finish Line is an event organised by Children and Future http://childrenandfuture.com/no-finish-line/, a charity that supports underprivileged and sick children. The charity provides funds to carry out cardiac operations to repair genetic defects in children from developing countries.
For every kilometre covered by participants €1 is donated to Children and Future. The aim for 2016 is to cover 384,400km, the distance from the Earth to the Moon. Our team has already covered 3,068km and we are aiming for a top 10 position in 2016, a very impressive objective given the relatively small size of the team of 80 members!
In the photo above are various members of the team including Adrian Mac Dermott who has already completed over 420 kilometres!
Come and visit us at the PussyFooting Around tent in the Chapiteau in Fontvieille in Monaco. You can sign up to the PussyFootingAround team and even take part in our team’s 24 hour event from 18:00 Friday to 18:00 Saturday. Plenty of fun and camaraderie to be had.
Monaco Projects has installed the latest technology to ensure that spin classes at the Thirty Nine Monte Carlo members’ club are exhilarating, fun and competitive.
Sophisticated electronic systems synchronise the colours and the flashing of the LED lights to the music in the fully-soundproofed room.
The enormous screen shows either constantly changing dynamic patterns or the heart outputs and revolutions per minute of all the riders – perfect for encouraging competition and that extra bit of performance!
For those wanting to take spinning to the next level, the hi-tech room can also change in altitude. Failsafe systems adjust the levels of nitrogen in the air to simulate exercising at altitudes of up to 5,000m – that is about the level of the Everest base camp.
This altitude training enables riders’ bodies to perform more efficiently with less oxygen. When they “return” to sea level, performance is significantly enhanced in the oxygen-rich air.
The spin room is one of two altitude rooms installed by Monaco Projects at Thirty Nine Monte Carlo. Members can be instructed in the large training room at up to 5,000m in altitude on weights, bikes, rowing and running machines.
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.
Thirty Nine Monte Carlo, the new luxury lifestyle members’ club in Monaco (http://www.39montecarlo.com) with state-of-the-art sports floor, renovated by Monaco Projects, opens today in the presence of H.S.H. Albert II of Monaco.
Two years of hard work by an amazing team have produced an incredible result of which we are all very proud. Monaco now has a members’ club which is the envy of the world!
We are putting the final finishing touches to Thirty Nine Monte Carlo today ahead of its official opening this evening.
The images show the amazing attention to detail that has been lavished on the club. The club logo appears on tables, doors and even the door handles!
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.
