How Construcap Is Expanding Its Activities

The construction industry is one of the primary drivers of economic growth in Brazil. Over the last decade, the industry has undergone a massive restructuring driven by the structural transformation of the Brazilian economy. In 2009 to 2013, the industry grew at 7.1%, thanks to the increased demand for real estate, huge government’s investment programs to address infrastructure deficiencies and prepare the country for the hosting of the 2014 FIFA World Cup and the 2016 Olympic Games.


In 2014, the company entered a recession but not as worse as the one experienced in 2006. The industry experienced a decrease in output leading to a decelerating economy. However, credit supply was unrestricted, and there was high domestic demand but not as high as the one experienced in 2009 to 2013. This affected the growth of the Brazilian construction sector.


Despite the slow development of the construction sectors, Construcap has beaten the odds and continued to receive construction projects. Construcap is a Brazilian-based construction company that was established in 1944 by five engineers namely; Iório Adami, Júlio Capobianco, John Ulic Burke Jr., José Mandacaru Guerra and José Ribeiro do Valle. In 1972, the company established the Construcap CCPS Engineering and Trade subsidiary from a merger between Construcap Engineering and Trade and Construtora Pereira de Sousa.


The company operates in both public and private markets in the segments of buildings, infrastructure, and energy. It completes a wide variety of projects such as pre-construction, structured projects, heavy construction and electromechanical assembly.


Construcap has a written Business Commitment which emphasizes the importance of safety, integrity, and excellence and also its relations with clients, partners, employees, and other interested parties. The company aims at continuously developing its processes to successfully complete its projects while considering the environment. Construcap is ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 certified implying that it continuously improves its products and services to satisfy customer requirements and that it complies with strict standards to promote environmental protection respectively.


Construcap has always produced quality outcomes, making it stand out in the construction industry. In 2012, the Exame magazine named Construcap, the most profitable construction company in Brazil. In 2015, the O Empreiteiro magazine published the Industrial Construction Ranking for the first time based on the number of industrial works done from 2013 to 2015. Construcap was one of the largest, securing the 7th position.
