There are areas with residential, commercial, industrial or historical patrimony predominance, etc.
An industry, for example, is not appropriate for a residential neighborhood and will not receive a license from the City Hall.

5. Is a project expensive?

No. A project takes your wishes into consideration beyond all legal, functional, aesthetic and economic needs.
The construction professionals always take into account the costs that the project will entail, as well as providing all the information necessary for the execution of the work.
