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.
"Customer loyalty is not achieved through words but rather responding to requirements. Saying “yes, we can” despite everything".
"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".
"The only way to minimise risks is if all parties (workers and employees) are aligned and seriously committed to safety issues".
"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".
"What clients value most is honesty. We might make a mistake, a task might turn out right or wrong, but we are honest. I cannot control every single person who works for the company. But if something is done badly, we repair it".
"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”
