Our vision

A better Building Experience

Our primary goal at Osprey is to create a positive building experience for our clients. This is something that we try to improve on every day.
How can we build more efficiently and produce higher quality?
How can we improve the accountability, communication and transparency with our clients in order to deliver exactly what they want?

Our values

Accountability

We believe that a good service starts with accountability. We have found that the best way to create good service is to make ourselves accountable to our clients. We believe it is important for our clients to evaluate us at every stage of the building process. Our goal is to get a 5 out of 5 stars and not to be afraid of customer criticisms but embrace them early on to learn and improve our performance. This idea is at the core of our companies DNA.

Communication

Transparency is created through continuous and open communication. We try to keep the client, their representatives, and our team aware of all relevant issues. Our use of technology, our information sharing and reporting platforms, are second to none. When working with us, you will always feel you know where we are in the construction process, what has to be resolved, and the plan of action for the tasks ahead.


A culture of improvement

The team at Osprey is always looking to improve itself. The best idea must make its way forward. To achieve this, our team is willing to listen, to others in the team, as well as those outside.  We learn and adopt the most up to date methods in the industry, and keep open and curious minds.  By doing so we are always on the forefront of methods and solutions that help our clients and us.

Being willing to listen, and curious to ask, and by refining what we already know through experience, Osprey stays on the forefront of the knowledge curve.

Leveraging Technology

We are constantly trying to incorporate technology to improve the quality and efficiency of our work. In recent years we have seen incredible advances in mobile technology and do our best to incorporate it, from incorporating GPS tracking systems, to incorporating the latest mobile apps into our building and maintenance systems.

Though a cliché, we believe it is the way of the future and have a culture of applying these advances to our process.

Experience

Osprey has one of the longest track records in the Caribbean.  We have takeon some of the most complicated jobs in the region and consistently delivered Class A projects. There is no substitute for experience. And we love a good challenge.
