Alberto Diaz-Hermidas


Marbella, Costa del Sol, Spain


City planning and land development

In Spain and Andalusia, urban planning by the public sector is generally limited to the City-wide plan. The planning, land readjustment and physical development of the various planning sectors defined by the City plan are normally undertaken by private landowners or investors. which often require technical services including master planning, environmental studies, land readjustment projects and civil engineering projects.

Alberto´s recent projects include various master plans and environmental studies for various sectors and subdivisions of residential property in Marbella.

Services for Real Estate transactions

In recent years, planning and environmental legislation in Andalusia has become increasingly complex. The planning situation in Marbella is particularly intricate, after the annulment of the City plan of 2010 and the recent return to the former City plan dating from 1986.

As a result, it is common practice in the Costa del Sol to perform a comprehensive diligence including verification of planning compliance and certificates for the update of land registry and cadastral records.

Alberto has a long experience offering these services to individual property owners, developers, legal firms and real estate agencies.

Building projects

Marbella and the Costa del Sol are desirable destinations for residential tourism and the demand for new construction continues. The trend is particularly noticeable for contemporary design, technologically advanced and energy-efficient high-end residential and commercial buildings.

Alberto's recent projects include various single-family homes in the Nagüeles and Nueva Andalucía areas of Marbella, and a renovation and addition project for a multi-brand luxury car dealership in San Pedro Alcantara.

Building technology consulting

Delivering the increasingly sophisticated products that the real estate market demands requires the application of the latest technologies, such as Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and the Building Information Modelling (BIM) process.

Alberto is an early adopter and enthusiast of the BIM-GIS processes, since they allow small firms to reach unprecedented levels of precision and efficiency.

He collaborates with consultants in the cloud, around smart 3D models produced with tools such as Revit, AutoCAD Civil 3D, and the Esri suite of GIS tools.
