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".
"We stand out for our personalised attention. We can be contacted directly at any time of the day. We are deeply involved with every project and if and when issues arise we feel as if they were our own".
"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."
"The founders instilled in us the concept that Norte always fulfils its commitments, and that when there is a lot of work, when the company grows too much, it is important to know when to say ‘no’ in order to be able to fulfil the existing commitments".
"Norte would not be what it is without the people who work for us. The company stands out for doing things properly, and if we make a mistake, we figure out a way to solve it. This is also something we convey: if we have to do things five times until they finally turn out as they should, then we will do so".
“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”
