About Us

What defines us

Committed since 1957

Since 1957 the great works in Costa Rica have been built by EDICA. The values instilled by our founders and the innovative spirit characteristic of their entire human team, for more than six decades, qualify us as the construction company in our field of the greatest trajectory and experience in our country. We have maintained a record of impeccable compliance. Each and every one of our works have been delivered according to the contract deadlines, and to our fundamental principle of customer satisfaction.

Our portfolio consists of highly complex public and private infrastructure projects: hospitals and clinics, airport infrastructure, industrial works, shopping centers, banking, hotels, offices, housing, treatment plants, aqueducts and sanitation, power transmission and distribution lines, bridges and other high quality works. The leadership achieved in the national market allowed us to expand our horizons, building works outside our borders, and transforming us into a company with regional presence.

Our practices are certified according to international organizations. We have the ISO 9001: 2015 Quality Standard, and the OHSAS 18001: 2009 certification in occupational health and safety. In addition, our work and office processes are certified with the INTE ISO 14001: 2015 standard for waste management and disposal.

The trust of our customers, institutions, and our staff, as well as their satisfaction, are the company’s greatest asset. Today we are proud to continue contributing to the development of the infrastructure of our country and beyond, and to have a history of compliance, trust, strength, support and commitment, which has characterized us since our foundation, October 9, 1957.
