"Our worldwide network allows us to deliver high quality at a low cost and our management expertise allows us to deliver every detail on time with the utmost workmanship."

In order to ameliorate efficiency and effectiveness of an operational business, there is inherent need to adapt the architecture to the work processes and operations. However, often the opposite is true: architecture and walls are built, and work processes must be bent and moulded to the concrete structures that are built in hopes to achieve productivity and efficiency. In order to promote such effectiveness, Terra International has been developing, designing and building (or when not possible, renovating) the very hotels and resorts it has managed since 1986. Since 2010, Terra International has been operational in the construction of residential buildings, offering specialised, unique and customised solutions for each individual project. From proposal to handover, utmost top-level performance and commitment to detail is guaranteed.


Our residential construction division focuses on integrity, reliability, and quality. We take on all types of residential construction work, from small residential remodels to new home construction projects. Our aim is to create living spaces, that are built with the best suitable materials, innovate products and homes rather than houses.


Our commercial constructions include a wide range of hotels and resorts on 4 continents and range from small-scale renovation to grand scale luxury resorts.
