Design-Building your dreams into reality

Project Management Web Platform

At Sarco Architects Costa Rica and Sarco Architects Panama, our focus and specialty has been how to make every one of our projects not only a success, but also an easy to manage and enjoyable experience for our clients. While you take care of your busy schedule back where home is for you, we take care of making your project not only a beautiful home, with top-notch technical solutions and perfection, but also easy for you. As a key part of our service, we will provide you with a platform to be fully informed and involved, and interact with us from anywhere in the world and even from the device in the palm of your hand.

Design-Build on Select Projects

Our direct involvement in the construction execution of a select number of our projects also provides all of our clients with our hands-on experience and expertise in construction. When we work on your project, it is much more than a pretty architectural design, since we give deep thought and an integrated approach between how things look, how things work, and how things are supposed to be effective to build.
Our approach is one of integrated architectural design, we drive the project and design team, and make sure that all elements either functional, aesthetic, or of systems and engineering are all considered and properly coordinated.

3D Modeling Experts

We are specialists in the use of 3D BIM (Building Information Modeling) applications, and provide this huge benefit of true fully interactive visualization to our designs. Our clients never have to say “I didn’t understand that on the plans”, because they are capable of fully exploring and visualizing a proposed design before they sign off on it.
Sarco Architects Costa Rica made the full commitment to high-end software solutions over 10 years ago, and we are likely the firm with the longest commitment and experience in Building Information Modeling in Costa Rica.

As a very brief summary of my experience in our project, I can express that I am very pleased with SARCO’s professionalism in customer orientation, design, planning, and execution. The key question of course is – would I recommend my best friends to contract SARCO for their project? And the answer is… Yes, definitely!

We initially worried about building our dream house in a developing country over 2,000 miles away from NY. But after having worked with Roderick and his team we can wholeheartedly say that Sarco has certainly turned our dreams into reality. Roderick has mastered every challenge and delivered a first-class home that fulfills and even surpasses our highest expectations.

Roderick is a master in the use of interactive technology. Designing with the use of leading edge interactive 3D software is a fun family project. Bridging the distance between New York and Costa Rica is a breeze.

Building Your Home in Costa Rica

Building a residence abroad can seem like a complex and frightening roadblock for those who haven’t been through it before.

You may be wondering: Will my project get approved? What preparation do I need to take in order to not end up as some of the horror stories around? How much time will the house take? What do I need to do to make sure my project gets approved in the shortest amount of time possible?

And most importantly: what are they key, critical steps I need to take to ensure that my entire project is a success?

We at SARCO Architects have created a 2-part guide, to help answer these questions – and more.
