CENOR, Consultores, S.A. is an engineering company that operates in the areas of planning and coordination/supervision of subcontracts.
Cenor was founded in 1980. Since its creation, it has implemented a strategy that focuses on client satisfaction and on a flexible, decentralized, and autonomous management model in order to improve the quality of the services it provides and its interaction with clients while drawing on skills, specialization, innovation and on the development of new technologies.
In the 1990s, the company experienced a period of sustained growth, leading it to increase its staff and become successively involved in projects of increasing size and complexity.
The company was therefore able to respond to Portugal’s strong growth in public and private works in the area of housing, services, and industry, with a special focus on the Autonomous Region of Madeira.
Cenor’s main activities have always included all of the main specializations within civil engineering; however the company is mainly dedicated to drawing up studies, advisory reports, projects, and project audits; managing the quality of enterprises; providing technical support, expert analysis, and technical consultancy to works and management; and supervising, controlling, coordinating and overseeing works.
As a result of the trust placed in the company by its clients, Cenor has developed into one of the leading consultancy companies in the Portuguese market, employing around 200 people by 2005.
By 2005, Cenor had accumulated extensive experience resulting from the numerous landmark projects on which it has worked since its founding, which include large engineering projects in Portugal involving a group of highly competent experts. Therefore, the natural next step was to internationalize the company.
In the meantime, as a consequence of its decision to internationalize, the company considered the possibility of merging its two affiliated companies into one company: Cenor Consultores Ltd. This aim was finally achieved in 2013.
Today, it operates in Angola, Mozambique, Cape Verde, Algeria, Brazil, Colombia, Venezuela and East Timor. Over the last eight years, it has participated in large scale and highly complex projects which the company has seen as challenges which it has successfully completed.
The company has a structural system that is based on quality and constantly updated technological resources that are made available to a highly motivated, trained, and informed team.
Cenor employs an interactive operating method, establishing a close relationship between knowledge and the specific needs of the project and our accumulated experience in supervising construction works.
Its professionals are experienced and have the ability to identify problems, assess the risks involved and design sustainable and innovative solutions.
