Understanding the Process of Building a New House or Renovating in Portugal

May 11 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm WEST


The architect’s role and potential costs

Are you considering building or remodelling to create your ideal home or investment in Portugal? There are many advantages, from being able to choose quality materials and personalising the fixtures and fittings to ensuring your investment will stand strong for years to come.

Understandably, many of you have concerns about dealing with bureaucracy in a country in which you’re unfamiliar with the language, construction methods or legal system.

Expert guests from CRAD Studio will be answering your questions and covering the key aspects of planning applications and construction processes. Including:
An architect’s role in Portugal (architectural stages)
New-built and refurbishment
Construction: modular, prefabricated, standard (steel, timber, or traditional)
Generic costs

CRAD (Collaborative Research Architecture Design) is an architecture and design studio based in London and Lisbon. CRAD Studio is experienced in every aspect, from the initial plot search to design and construction, every step until handing over the keys of a completed project.
