In the team since 1986 Iis responsible for the management of large-scale and complex projects in Portugal and other international markets

In the Cities Area we help our clients to create highly functional and climate resilient urban environments where people and business can thrive.

 

By working with public or private entities or IFIs, we provide consulting, planning and design for either new cities built from the ground up, or urban developments motivated by new transport hubs or tourism developments.

We combine robust, standard engineering solutions and state-of-the-art technology to promote better utilization ratios, lower losses in supply infrastructures, lower energy consumption in lighting or water and wastewater treatment.

 

In the New City of Hassi Messaoud in Algeria, we have developed special water abstraction and treatment systems that will allow a population of 100,000 inhabitants to have access to water in an efficient and sustainable way.

In Dar Es Salam, in Tanzania, we have developed a rainwater sewerage system at a regional level (1500km2) that will significantly reduce the historical floods in the region and allow the urban development of degraded areas.

Our holistic approach allows us to take into account different disciplines and the different stages of the urban life cycle: from construction, commissioning and growth to constant adaptation with a view to improving the living conditions of the populations and their prosperity.
