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".
"Every day new challenges arise and decisions have to be made. From the founders we learnt that if things are done properly, they pay off".
"Both of the founders are very hard workers, they are true examples. I admire their personality, their professionalism, values, transparency, and their correct manners. Norte has become what it is, thanks to how conservative they were at the time and the low-key attitude they have always had".
"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".
"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".
"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”
