We believe that our foundations are the people that make up the NVE family, so our goal is to keep on growing and innovating by remaining a family company with a close relationship with the client, thus reinforcing the market' recognition and trust.


Founded in 1993 in Guimarães, NVE is a service provider in the civil construction and public works sector. Its core business is the execution of public and private projects in the industrial, residential, commercial and services, and sports and leisure sectors, whether they are built from scratch or they are rehabilitation or conservation work. In addition, the company is dedicated to the execution of engineering studies and projects, as well as the provision of monitoring and inspection services for works.

It operates throughout the national territory and  has as its main clients, public entities - Ministries, Municipalities, Universities, Public Institutes and Town Councils - and private individuals - industrial and commercial and services companies, housing cooperatives, real estate developers, and private clients for their own housing.

The great competitive advantage of the company is to offer a complete service, from the project design phase, to its execution and inspection. This multifaceted intervention allows the company to differentiate itself from its competitors acting in the same market and, at the same time, to create synergies among its different activities.



  • NVE was founded on 23th July 1993

    It was in 1993 that NVE Engenharias, Lda was founded by its two managing partners, José Maria Oliveira Nogueira and José Vitorino Domingos Silva both graduated in Civil Engineering, conceiving, as their main strategy, the bet in the execution of engineering studies and projects, taking into account two duly substantiated assumptions: the low supply of the market, at the time of the foundation, and its vast and varied experience in the sector.

  • Diversification of NVE, Construction of Public and Private works

  • Territorial expansion, Lisboa area

    The year of 2015 was marked by the expansion to the South zone, more specifically to the heart of Lisbon. The project that introduced the southern terrain was Edifício Miguel Lupi, a luxury rehabilitation that kept the constructive characteristics of the era intact, both on the exterior façades as in the interior, and was subjected to occasional changes that hardly affected it. The building's safety conditions were improved, through the restoration of the degraded areas and the structural reinforcement of the pavements and exterior walls, in a privileged location overlooking the Tagus river. This work would later become NVE's "business card" in Lisbon.
