I am José Francisco Muñoz, by title I am a civil engineer, coming from the traditional style of construction. For almost 16 years I have worked at FCC Construcción, where I executed building sites like Metrosur in Madrid (subway system), the motorway Autopista Cartagena Vera and the tram in Murcia, the latter one as project manager.
Sometimes, although for the rest of the world your working situation may seem admirable, you feel something else, that your daily effort does not lead to personal satisfaction, that your employment and your values are not in line…
One night of lucidity I decided to leave that career behind and embark on a new journey……Which one?…….I took a sabatical year which would allow me to see things with more perspective, I was clear on that I wanted to have a life project, aligned with my values, something that me and my family could feel proud of and that would contribute to better the lives of others and the world that our children will inherit. It is also important to me that this project creates the conditions for those who colaborate to develop their talents and the best version of themselves.
The opportunity to design and consult the construction of a house in an ecovillage in Portugal arose. I have always been interested in green building and this was the moment to put it into practice. This project got me hooked completely. Africa and Guille, put their trust in us and among all we achieved that they got the house of their dreams.
That experience showed me the way…and since 2016 we have been going in this direction.
Every day I work so that Crehabitat can be “that project”. Little by little the Crehabitat family is growing and more and more people put their energy and hope into the project….Manuel, Pedro, Jorge, Salut, Joaquin, Tomás, and our beloved colaborators: Jose Antonio, Christophe, the interior designers from La Espaciera… Not to forget Pablo and Luis, who have contributed a lot during the time we were colaborating.

Jose Antonio Alonso
Expert in biohabitability, inverts large part of his time divulging the external factors that affect our health.
This is what marks our diference
Building healthy homes and doing them in a way that is accessible to many people is our mission.
For this I use the skills I developed in my stage of construction of large public works (management of projects and human groups, construction of structures, optimization of solutions and leadership) to, in conjunction with the values of health, ecology, responsibility and sustainability, offer a different and innovative construction.
We want that in a few years the majority of homes that are built or reformed are healthy and sustainable, following bioconstruction criteria.
We see it necessary to develop a greater awareness of what our housing can affect our health.
