Construcap is among the ten largest construction firms in Brazil. Founded in 1944 as a civil engineering and contracting firm, it has grown into a conglomerate made up of major players in building, consulting, engineering, and energy. The company grew with the Brazilian economic boom of the 2000s and has expanded into logistics, hospital services, and offshore drilling, building a diverse portfolio and developing an impressive list of projects and joint ventures.
One of Construcap’s biggest projects has been the formation of Minas Arena, which was founded as a public-private partnership to rehabilitate the famous Mineirao Stadium in Belo Horizonte, Minas Gerais. Minas Arenas manages the emblematic facility, one of the largest and well-known sports venues in Latin America. Another project in the state of Minas Gerais is a logistics and transportation hub that helps connect southern Minas Gerais with the Rio de Janeiro region.
Construcap has also been succesful in expanding into the energy sector. The company’s oil subsidiary, Construcao Montagem Offshore, is currently planning the construction of a shipyard facility to build and repair specialty vessels used in the offshore extraction process. Construcap has also entered into a joint venture with Texas-based engineering firm Fluor, which has been active in Brazil since the 1960s, to offer a wide range of engineering and mining services.
