The first award was a 28-apartment building in the town of Platja d’Aro, hence the name of the company.
In the early years, the company set up its headquarters in the Ginjoler street offices in Manresa and advanced in new construction segments, expanding its geographical area throughout Catalonia, starting the activity in the state public and Catalan regional sectors some years later.
