Construcap is one of the ten largest construction companies in Brazil. The company was founded in 1944 and now works on construction projects throughout the country. The types of construction projects that Construcap works on are in both the public and private sectors and include industrial, commercial, roads, airports, ports, rail, and infrastructure. It is headquartered in São Paulo.
Among recent projects that Construcap has started to work on, a consortium that is is part of will be finishing the São Francisco River transposition project. The contract is worth R $442 million and will complete the last part that enables the city of Ceará to obtain water from Veho Chico. This is an important project as the city has been in desperate need of an additional source of water for over a decade.
Construcap also completed the Arena Mineirão which was only the second arena in the world to be awarded the Leed Platinum Certification Seal. In order to earn this seal, Construcap has to build it to be sustainable and environmentally friendly. The stadium features a state of the art air circulation system that reduces the consumption of air conditioning by over 40%. It also collects all of the rain that falls on the building into enormous rain barrels that are used to water the field and provide water for toilets and urinals. The solar panels that Construcap installed can collect enough power to provide electricity to over 1,200 homes. Also, 90% of the waste that is generated at games is collected and recycled due to the waste system that Construcap installed into the facility.
In order to be able to do projects like Arena Mineirão, Construcap provides its engineers and other workers with lots of opportunities to learn the latest construction techniques and technologies. As Construcap is also socially responsible before a construction project is started the company sends a team of instructors to the area in order to train people to do jobs like painting and masonry. These workers are also provided with the tools and clothing they need to do the job. Construcap also emphasizes hiring women in a male dominated industry. http://www.construcap.com.br/pt/fale-conosco/assessoria-de-imprensa
