ARCADIS Logos is a company created in 2006 to act as a holding company of the ARCADIS Network in Brazil, commanding consulting and engineering companies that develop from conceptualization activities to the implementation of a venture.
ARCADIS is one of the most comprehensive and comprehensive global networks, a leader in providing consulting and engineering services in the infrastructure, environment and building sectors.
ARCADIS Logos SA is a Brazilian company integrating engineering services, in constant evolution, in order to adapt the service demand of its markets. It started its activities in 1970 as Logos Engenharia SA to be, at the time, the first Brazilian engineering consultancy company with exclusive dedication to the Project Management activity.
After almost 30 years of great success in its activities, in 1999, in the dawn of globalization, Logos Engenharia joined ARCADIS NV, a global, publicly-held company based in Amsterdam, founded in the Netherlands in 1888.
In order to meet the need to expand its field of activities and the growing Brazilian engineering market, ARCADIS Logos has, over the last years, promoted a continuous process of organizational and business change, far beyond endogenous diversification initiatives. Thus, the specialization of LOGOS ENGENHARIA in Management was extended with other capacities and specializations, through the acquisition of traditional companies operating in other fields, such as ENERCONSULT, in Projects; the HYDROAMBIENTE, in Environmental Remediation; TETRAPLAN, in Strategic and Environmental Planning; and INTERPLAN, in Sanitation.
Continuing its modernization and evolution process, in search of the best and most complete customer service, all these subsidiaries of ARCADIS Logos have now been integrated into the same organization, with the purpose of simplifying its corporate, operational and administrative structure. ARCADIS Logos SA is now acting as an integrated engineering firm, consolidating the activities traditionally performed by its operating subsidiaries (i) Logos Engenharia SA, (ii) Enerconsult SA and (iii) ARCADIS Tetraplan SA and with all the resources previously distributed among these companies.
The merger will provide greater efficiency to the services and businesses previously conducted independently by the companies incorporated by ARCADIS Logos SA, either by the unification of the respective human resources, or by the centralization of the internal and external controls of these businesses, with positive effects in the monitoring, guidance and in the correction of points or areas that present inefficiencies, or, finally, the channeling of investments and attention to only one business unit.
With more than 2,500 full-time employees, mostly at university level, distributed throughout Brazil and in some other countries, ARCADIS Logos is able to operate in all markets and in all stages of the Cycle of Implementation of a Enterprise, from the initial phase of Consulting for Design and Environmental Studies, focused on the development of Strategic Environmental Plans, Environmental Licensing and Environmental Program Management, to the phases of effective implementation, with activities of Project, Owner's Engineering, Integral and Sectoral Management and Supervision of Deployment. ARCADIS Logos is also able to meet the demand of its customers for solid waste management and remediation of high complexity environmental liabilities.
Considering the extension of the national territory and its geographic presence, ARCADIS Logos, based in São Paulo, will act in a decentralized way, with its activities being developed by three Operational Divisions, nine Business Units and five Regional Directorates, to coordinate and support the Project Offices and Clients, with preferential focus on: (i) Mining, Steel and Metallurgy; (ii) Pulp and Paper Industry, Cement and others; (iii) Oil and Gas; (iv) Electric Power: Generation and Transmission, Hydroelectricity, Thermoelectricity, Biomass; (v) Water Resources and Sanitation; (vi) Urban Development: Mass Transports, Redevelopment, Housing Programs and Urban Services and (vii) Environmental Programs and Solutions.
In addition to its strong presence in the Brazilian market, ARCADIS Logos will also operate overseas in projects in South America, Africa, Asia and the Middle East to meet the needs of its traditional customers. The company currently participates in projects in Argentina, Oman and Malaysia and has the global qualification of its controlling company, ARCADIS NV, to meet the demand of its clients in the relevant world markets, in all continents.
