Decades of Caribbean Building Experience

Building in the Caribbean typically requires significant investment, and it’s important to make the sound design and material choices to ensure longevity and prevent unnecessary repair and replacement expenses in the future.

The team at RA Shaw Designs has decades of architecture and building experience in the Caribbean and Turks and Caicos, with extensive knowledge of what works, and importantly, what doesn’t.
