Dom Manuel is a total rehabilitation of an 18th-century Portuguese townhouse into 8 modern apartments and one shop with architectural details that reflect the craftsmanship of Porto’s construction techniques.

The construction maintains the front facade of traditional tiled facades and windows with French balconies. The structure of the building is entirely new. The back facade of the building is full glass with aluminum profiles, opening up the view to the garden of the National Museum of Soares dos Reis.

Deadline Control

The work of architecture and infrastructures was initiated on March 1 2021 and has a period of 7 months.

Due to the rectification of structural beams, the works of the architecture and infrastructures stopped between March 16 and April 6 in March 2021, which postponed the final conclusion of the work by 3 weeks to 22 October 2021.

After the completion of works, tests of facilities, municipal surveys, and certifications, and connections to public utilities such as water, electricity, and wastewater will be performed.

Deviation Recovery Plan

With the exception of the delay of 3 weeks caused by the forced stop to carry out the structure's rectifications, the work has evolved according to the planned planning.

In order to minimize the constraints caused by the delays, the work management team together with the contractor prioritized the implementation of the infrastructure works that impact the inspections and/or certifications to be carried out for the licensing of the building.

In planning, tests and certifications are scheduled 3 to 4 weeks before the conclusion of the work, with the objective of obtaining the use license and water and energy connection without further delays.

Quality Control and Timeline Control

The execution of the works is regularly monitored by the Designers and Inspection of the work, with the objective of clarifying doubts, adapting solutions, and enforcing the quality of the project.

Works carried out in this period include the execution of subdivision masonry, floor and wall infrastructures, tile roofing, light floor fillings, floor sound insulation, radiant flooring, screeds, and sheet-covered facades.

The work is monitored by the management team, which attests to the good execution of the work, guaranteeing its good execution and respect for the projects made available for execution.

Budget Control

Until 30 June 2021, 65% of total construction works was invested and 100% of total works was awarded.
