FR Review:
There is something unique about Albino Construction. Always in high demand, the firm does things the "Albino way," which means doing extensive planning, then pushing the envelope with double crews and six-day weeks. Reflecting the personality of its principal, Albino Martinez, the firm is "bright, honest and hardworking," sources tell us.

Top-shelf architects and designers seek out Martinez, whose ironclad timetables and dependable crews simplify even the most daunting projects. Residential projects center in the Malibu/Beverly Hills/Pacific Palisades area and consist of both ground-up construction and renovation. Projects range from 8,000 to 17,000 square feet. Flanked by their own cabinet shop and finish carpenters, the firm specializes in traditional residential (rather than contemporary style) construction.

Martinez makes his presence known daily at every project site, exerting control through masterful orchestration of highly responsible trades on site, who largely supervise each other. Clients tell us "every workman was fantastic" and at the end of the project they "actually missed them terribly." Albino bills on a weekly time-and-materials basis. While the books are always transparent, the numbers are big. Of course, for Albino's clients, the numbers on the calendar are the ones that count. While insiders say meeting aggressive timetables is what makes Albino great, others find the atmosphere a little brusque.

Representative Client Comments:
"It could not have been a more positive experience. They are dedicated, honest, stand by their word and every promise is always kept." "Albino himself will strap on a belt and work it out." "I never saw anyone who will not go back to him." "Such a pleasure. Clients and designers love him." "In this land of litigation he's not into paperwork, just getting the job done." "Will make the house happen even if the design is incompetent." "The actual cost of Albino will always feel like it was a bargain, regardless of how much they charge." "Everything in our house works beautifully."
