Our Approach

We bring your dream spaces to life, while strategically managing the quality, cost and timeline of your build. Building an international home or enhancing your space is an exciting process, so our bilingual staff takes a deliberate approach to ensure that the process is not only time- and cost-efficient, but that you have a bit of fun along the way.

What started out as a few projects in 2010 quickly grew into the largest general contractor in the area with over 250 employees in its construction department and its own team of architects and engineers—so, please leave the heavy lifting to us.

A True Design/Build Approach

Why Design/Build

Design/Build is a construction delivery method that gives you a single point of contact for both design and construction services. All members of our project team are brought together early in the process to identify and address issues of cost, schedule and constructability.


Our integration with design and construction gives us the opportunity to “nest” multiple project phases to, for example, purposefully start elements of construction early on, while still in the design finalization period to expedite the process.


Our Design/Build services provides not only for more opportunities for your collaboration, but also results in a more streamlined and efficient process. We are builders, and we are problem-solvers who deliver innovative construction solutions and provide the best results.

Architecture & Engineering

Santa Ana Madera works with you to develop project Architecture and Construction Drawings (CDs) with our on-staff design and technical team, and with the support of subcontracted professionals, including principal architects, as well as structural, geotechnical, hydrosanitary, and electrical engineers.

We accommodate all design situations, whether that be working with your international architect, hiring one of our partnered firms in Managua, or developing the entire CD package in house.

Custom-developed CDs embody our program’s years of construction experience as well as attention to progression in building systems and methods.



We specialize in leading a variety of projects from conception to completion, including high-end residential and commercial construction, millwork, and structural iron work.


Whether building your dream home, or modernizing or remodeling your existing floor plan, our passionate and experienced team will construct your space with unrivaled quality and efficiency.
