Over the past 50 years Norte has built all kinds of projects: public and private constructions, hotels, large commercial areas, restaurants, petrol stations, among others.
"We have to assume the highest level of responsibility. You cannot delegate, then worry about those things and see that they are carried out. We have to use good materials, work with good contractors, and have a good project. You have to be present".
"It was important to reject projects that we felt we would be unable to implement properly. We preferred to say no. It is important to know when to say 'no'. This implies responsibility because we know we will be unable to do things correctly".
"The founders conveyed the importance of the concept of ‘effort’ as a value. They are austere, they do not squander because it cost them a lot to achieve this. We view their sacrifice as an example".
"For me, Patricio and Tito have set an example in everything: With their life experience, through their dedication to the company and their family. They made big sacrifices ever since they started out".
"Today Norte is a brand. Many hire us because our brand name sells well and because of the soundness of our work and our track record. Achieving this in the construction market can be very complex, so this is a real merit."
"From the founders we learnt the values they passed on to us. The value of integrity and honesty come naturally to them; they are not theoretical about these values but express them through their actions".
"The important thing is the resolve with which issues are dealt with. Being self-critical and trying to learn how to improve. If one lacks self-criticism, it is very difficult to achieve self-development".
"Architects Boix and Pérez Morgan were my classmates at the School of Architecture in the 1970s."
"The most remarkable thing about Norte is that it is a family-owned business; one can speak with the owners and everything is more direct, less bureaucratic"
"One feels reassured when working with Norte because, compared to other companies, fewer errors occur, and if so, they are corrected"
"The first project we did with Norte was in Montevideo in 2009 and what caught our attention most was their organization and cleanliness at the construction site."
"Worth highlighting are Norte’s assets: their construction fleet makes you realise that this is a company capable of dealing with any type of construction project, regardless of the deadline or size"
“THE PROJECTS THEY BUILT OVER THE PAST 50 YEARS, WITH THE SEA AS AN ALLY, ARE FAR MORE THAN THE MERE HISTORY OF A BUSINESS, THEY ARE, ABOVE ALL, A FAMILY HISTORY”
