A family story
We are a family business group. Constructora del Castillo was founded in 1982 by engineer Eduardo del Castillo, and FDC Consulting Group was later established by Francisco del Castillo. In 2007, Francisco del Castillo did a real estate thesis for his master’s degree – on a coastal community in the Jama area. “My main aim with my master’s degree was to sell the concept of creating Jama Campay to my father – so we could start making it real with our construction company”, says Francisco.
We are a construction company; our services include real estate development, technical studies and architectural and interior design. Since starting in 1982, we have accomplished some works of national importance in Ecuador:

Academic Studies: Civil Engineer, Universidad Central del Ecuador
Engineer Eduardo del Castillo began his professional career almost 40 years ago. The most important building he has constructed to date is the Ambato Convention Centre (1993-1994), built by a workforce of 300 people and funded by the Industry Chamber of Industry, the Municipality, the Prefecture and the provincial government.
Every one of Eduardo del Castillo’s buildings has featured an important innovation for its time. Currently, Eng. Eduardo’s main project is JAMA CAMPAY. This unique and exclusive project on Ecuador’s coast has been acknowledged by Jama´s municipality with the Best Building Project Award. It is also attracting large numbers of foreign buyers from North America through its exposure with groups Pathfinder and International Living.
Eduardo del Castillo makes it imperative for every one of his projects to have a social aim, a meaning: “My motivation is not just the building itself but what it means for the community.” We are a consulting group of Finances, Development and Communication. Our mission is to merge these three concepts in the development of innovative business strategies.
