The Nelson Group is a private property fund.
Our aim is to build and renovate tailor-made developments on behalf of hotel groups, cultural centers or others whilst retaining ownership.
We always build using the latest green technologies as our ethic is based on having a zero-energy approach.
Project after project, we endeavor to better our approach on reducing the impact of our buildings on their environment and therefore creating an excellent return on investment for our portfolio.
When we work on developments our key goals are that we insist the projects integrate flawlessly with the local urbanism and respect the social fabric of the area.
At the heart of our design processes we recognize that the primary function of a place might not be its last and therefore we aim to build spaces that can be adapted to alternative future uses.
A long-term vision,
A social responsibility,
A minimal environmental impact,
The satisfaction of the users,
These are the credos of the Nelson Group.
A lawyer by training, but real estate, architecture, the world of construction and environmental sensitivity are the common themes of his career. By doing the same things one obtains the same results ... That is exactly what he does not want to do.
