It is true. Although building a new house is an exciting endeavour, it is also a complex task that can be beyond anyone’s control without the appropriate expertise and help.
Building a house entails many different factors. This is why a good coordination of all these factors is crucial if you want your project to be successful.
When a house starts to be built without a plan and the necessary expertise and knowledge, the process can become a nightmare: an endless source of stress and problems that will drain our energy while forcing us to waste time and money.
But your path to a new home does not necessarily have to be paved with stress and problems.
They can be avoided by delegating the planning, management and supervision of the project to an expert in house building, that is to say, to a Project Manager.
At Casal Mallorquí, we take care of absolutely everything and solve any problem that might arise, with the aim of making the process of building your home or holiday residence in Mallorca a fulfilling and exciting experience. The only thing that you and your family will have to do is to relax and enjoy seeing the house of your dreams being built.
Just like a skilled chess player seeking the best strategy when moving the pieces on the chessboard, the project manager will lead, manage, motivate, supervise and evaluate the work of all those involved in the project.
Builders, bricklayers, electricians, plumbers, carpenters, etc., will work in the most coordinated, effective and efficient way possible under his direct supervision. Besides, the project manager will be the connection between the team of professionals that work on site and you. He will become your voice and eyes throughout the whole process.
Among all the services we offer at Casal Mallorquí, it is no coincidence that this service is the one preferred by our clients, as it provides them with the greatest comfort and peace of mind.
If you are thinking about building a house in Mallorca you should know that, most probably, you will face obstacles such as:
Unless you were born in Spain or have been living here for a long time, you will also find that the ways of working and the Spanish bureaucracy are, probably, very different from those of your country of origin. Besides, in this case, the language barrier is always a major impediment.
Sadly, the problems listed above cause many people to give up their dream of building their own home in Mallorca.
At Casal Mallorquí, we do not want any of these obstacles to stand between you and your ideal home on the island.
If you entrust us with the management of your project, we will plan, direct and control the entire development of the construction project for you in order to:
The construction of your new home should not stop your life. This is our goal. Therefore, we take care of all the paperwork, negotiate with suppliers, plan and coordinate every step of your project. In short, we control the whole building process for you at all times.
When different companies and workers are involved in each phase of a project, everything slows down and becomes chaotic. That, undoubtedly, results in «mistakes», «additional working days» and «cost overruns». Both, our project manager and our technical architect, will personally supervise every aspect of the construction process. This will minimise mistakes and coordination problems within the team avoiding deviations from the initial budget.
The project manager will ensure that each team member knows what it needs to be done at every stage and that all short and long-term objectives are met on schedule. In addition, he will pay particular attention that the quality of the materials and the finishes are as agreed.
The technical architect and the project manager will constantly carry out control and monitor tasks on site to ensure that everything is built as planned. In order to closely monitoring the process and undertaking a meticulous follow-up, both of them will hold a weekly meeting on site with all the professionals involved in the construction to resolve any possible question or doubt.
Occasionally, it happens that last-minute changes are required in order to cope with some unforeseen circumstances. Imagine for a moment that you make up your mind and decide to place the master bathroom’s bathtub in a different place from where you first pictured it or that you finally want a bigger dressing room. It will be the project manager who will provide the information to the team on site making sure that the new changes are made.
Contingencies are a part of any construction. As building professionals, we are used to dealing with any unexpected situation and finding solutions quickly and efficiently. You can feel reassured to know that we will solve any problem that might arise.

Our service includes site management and all the necessary procedures to develop and give shape to your project.
We contacted Martin van der Kam to help us find a property in Mallorca.
After several well-planned visits by him we decided on a property in Manacor.
The whole process of buying the plot was also organised by Martijn and went smoothly. We accepted his suggestion to entrust the design of our project to the architect Juan Antonio Servera Vega. We were also very satisfied with his services.
Thanks to Martijn, the wait for the authorisation from the authorities to build was not wasted time. During this time, he asked for estimates from construction companies, plumbers, carpenters, electricians, gardeners… And the ground was prepared so that we could start building as soon as the building permit arrived.
Martijn translated all the estimates into German and presented them to us in the form of lists. This made things much easier. It was very easy to compare prices and qualities and decide which companies to choose. Thank you very much, Martijn. With our poor language skills, we could not have done it without you.
During the construction phase, Martijn supervised the entire construction work in an impeccable way and was always available on the phone giving us advice and helping us with everything. . Even when selecting materials (tiles, doors, bathroom fittings, kitchen, etc.), colours, exterior designs, he was always our contact and a great help. He took our interests and tastes into account in all the construction meetings, so he made us feel very relaxed.
Thank you very much for your support, your help and your energy Martijn.

Majorca is an absolute gem of a country and there is no other real estate firm that can take better care of you than Casal Mallorquí. Martijn is knowledgeable, personable, detail oriented and has great negotiation tactics. Being an agent myself, I am incredibly critical of other agents and this group is the best of the best!
When we decided to look for a country house in Mallorca, the first and most important step for us was to find someone we could trust. We chose Martijn van der Kam and his team in Casal Mallorquí because they transmitted professionalism, honesty and commitment to proximity from the beginning. They understood our concept of home, carrying out all the management of the project with a wonderful result. We will always be grateful for a job well done and the warm treatment we received.
My partner and I are very grateful to you for accompanying and advising us in such a committed and pleasant way in the purchase of the land we dreamed of so much in Mallorca. Even on Sundays and holidays, and at any time, Martijn has been at our disposal, has assisted us in the best way in each phase of the project and has obtained for us all the necessary information to be able to make an objective decision at the time of purchase. For his invaluable collaboration and help we convey our heartfelt thanks and wish him all the best in his company. Good luck and success.
We have collaborated together in different aspects of your professional practice and I wanted to thank you for the efficiency and professional treatment you have given me. At the same time, I would like to thank you for your sensitivity and friendliness, so necessary in the times we live in, with which you faced the specific problems that logically arose. In particular, I would like to point out your efficient work as an intermediary in the transaction of the sale of the 12-hectare rustic property in Cala Romántica of which I was the co-owner, and your considerable help as project manager, among other cases in the So na Moixa property, where we have built a beautiful single-family house.
Let us help you decide if the project management service is right for you. We don’t know your particular circumstances, but based on our experience, we can tell you that our project management service is perfect for you if:
This is the only step we cannot take for you.
It has never been easier to take the first step towards your dream.
