As a startup company, MAPE Engenharia Ltda. has as its business card the curriculum and the image of its founder: Engineer Manoel Eduardo Castro Pereira. The 25 years plus of high quality professional experiences added to Manoel the knowledge of the multitude of areas that are interwoven in a Project implementation. Such knowledge is available to the clients of MAPE Engenharia Ltda., and can be translated into fluid and less stressful project implementations, without the tensions brought by lack of planning or familiarity with the process of bringing a new project to life.
A Mechanical Engineer graduated at the infamous Escola de Engenharia de Itajubá, MG, Manoel’s life track has several great experiences, such as being the Engineering and Maintenance Engineer of a float glass manufacturing facility (Cebrace, Caçapava), a continuous processing plant where planning and technical background are key elements for success, preparing a whole project (financial feasibility study, design and funding) for a float glass plant (Savisa), rendering consulting services to improve the production yield of an animal food processing plant (Mogiana, Campinas), the management of the electrical and mechanical installation of a whole automotive plant (Mercedes-Benz, Juiz de Fora), and by the creation of a Brazilian subsidiary for the North American design house Albert Kahn Associates, Inc. (Santana de Parnaíba). Through Kahn do Brasil, Manoel coordinated and managed the planning and the design of facilities of all sizes, from the tiny medical office to the giant health care facility, many built with high level of construction and installation demands, technics and material. Such projects are spread all over the country and amongst them some can be highlighted due to their size, complexity or market relevance:
