The Playa Builder Story

“To build the highest quality product possible, at a fair price, and on time”

Established in 2005 in Playa del Carmen, the heart of the Riviera Maya, the Construction arm of American Development Company (ADC) American Development Company was started for the simple purpose of giving native English speakers an option in the Construction-Development industry. Originally working in Real Estate transactions, we noticed it was nearly impossible to get things done in construction or development. In any project, communication is vital and by sitting down with the decision makers at the beginning of a project, and communicating in their native language, we are able to avoid costly mistakes later. We estimate that our overall cost of building is 15% lower than the average builder because of the infrequency of change orders associated with an ADC run project.

We speak your language. We can guide you through the entire process, from planning and permitting, to design and construction.

We are made up of both Americans and Mexicans, with many years experience in the Construction and Real Estate Industry in Playa del Carmen and the Riviera Maya. We have formed relationships with trusted partners, subcontractors and suppliers and have achieved what has been recognized as the highest quality products in the entire area, doing it at an efficient, reasonable price.

What we have tried to do is simple, take the American idea of running a business and translate it into Mexico. We look for qualified people to do each facet of the job, pay attention to detail, and maybe most importantly, listen carefully  to the client. The results, we think, speak for themselves. Over 90% of our business comes from repeats and referrals.

If you are looking for someone you can trust with your construction project, we hope you give us an opportunity.

Projects done on time and on budget.
