SINCE 1957 BUILDING EXCELLENCE
ARMANDO CUNHA S.A. is a construction and public works company founded in December of 1957. The focus of its activity until 1992 was the construction and maintenance of road infrastructures, namely within the municipalities of the Great Lisbon.
With the new direction, in place since 1992, the company, in addition to cementing relations with previous customers and suppliers, has substantially increased its market share, increasing the range of partners and its geographic growth.
Armando Cunha extended its activity to the civil construction, design, management and coordination of all type of works.
This growth was accompanied by a significant investment in technical staff, productive and IT equipment, in order to be able to respond to any type of requests, particularly in the area of road infrastructure. It should be noted that only in recent years the company has tripled its equipment, using large investments.
The production support structures, including equipment repair and maintenance workshops and the materials testing laboratory have been expanded and retrofitted in recent years.
In order to improve the company’s infrastructure, its headquarters changed facilities in 2003 and is currently in the Urbanização da Matinha, where it occupies the third floor of the Edifício Verde with an area of 640 m2.
Since 2005, Armando Cunha has been consolidating its internationalization, initially with presence in some Portuguese-speaking African countries such as Cabo Verde, Angola and São Tomé e Príncipe.
With the acquisition of working experience across borders, Armando Cunha continues to expand internationally: Gana, Equatorial Guinea and Serra Leoa are some of the new projects, as well as the bet on the South American continent.

ARMANDO CUNHA SA, with headquarters and offices in Lisbon, currently has a staff of about 100 permanent employees, with highly qualified training and capacity to advise and guide the client, which is reinforced, whenever necessary, by the use of duly accredited external entities.
