The time has come when it is just as important to meet financial
ends as well as demands for high quality. You already know that it is
now a real possibility with no need to lower your expectations. There is
a wide range of applications for steel buildings, commercial use is
only one among them and there is the possibility for custom design a
commercial metal building for any application.
There are a number
of highly significant factors when operating your business. It is of
utmost importance to keep your customers and welcome new ones just as
well as see your revenue grow. Your business is also to maintain quality
standards your clients are used to even in a time of challenges of
growth and change in premises that may result in construction setbacks.
Closing your business even for the shortest of periods could bring
disastrous results that can not be afforded.
Today even the
construction of metal commercial buildings is practical reality with
direct financial advantage. Steel buildings are just as strong as
traditional buildings but come with the benefit of lower price and much
shorter construction time!
I recently went to visit some friends who have built a beautiful cob house in the hills of their Caribbean island home. Cob, which refers to a mixture consisting of earth, clay, sand, straw, and water, is an unusual choice for building materials in the Caribbean.

The major benefits of using cob as a building material, is that it is very inexpensive and relatively easy to work with. Infact this family made their dwelling place themselves and all the children were involved in the process. The mixture can be mixed by hand although in larger projects some people opt to use more mechanical mixing tools.

I was privy to learn this new word through a conversation with our International Property Adviser, Wini Dean, who was also gracious enough to explain what on earth it means! Apparently a condotel is a fusion of a condominium and a hotel and even though the concept has been around for about 20 years it is only now becoming popular as one of the latest trends in property developments. In a condotel an individual owns their condo within a building that is operated by a hotel group who provide a variety of services to the occupants. So even though you are in your own home you can enjoy some of the luxuries of staying in a 4-5 star hotel.
Condotels are mostly bought as a second vacation home and thus has the added benefit of being an income generating investment when you are not occupying it. By signing an agreement with the hotel operating group your condo becomes part of the rental pool when you are not around and can be let to other clients on a daily, weekly or monthly basis.
