Property Surveys and Valuations

Co-ordination of Building and Renovation Projects

The ‘general contractor’ does not exist for construction in the south of France. Each trade will be appointed individually so that the proper co-ordination of any building project is essential. Whether it be the construction of a new villa, the renovation of an older property or undertaking repairs detailed in a survey report, Charles Mackintosh will co-ordinate the construction project for you.


With many years experience, Charles has established a directory of highly reliable craftsmen and professionals that he can recommend to clients. At the outset, a schedule of works and a provisional budget are agreed before obtaining detailed quotations. With quotations agreed, the construction is managed on a regular basis ensuring that the project progresses satisfactorily to completion, is in accordance with instructions and to budget.
