AWANTT Engenharia is a brand new engineering company located both in Rio de Janeiro/Brazil and in Lisbon/Portugal, that aims to provide the most effective construction management and design build services to assist project owners in executing their construction projects in a timely and cost-effective manner.


Our history began in the 1940s, when Mr. Abílio Ceulin began his career as a construction master. He worked for almost 30 years in large companies until he founded his own company in the 1970s. For almost twenty years he was in charge of his engineering company, being responsible for the maintenance of the Cia. Docas do Rio de Janeiro warehouses, as well as paving and maintenance of road and railways, maintenance of crane lines, among others. In the end of 1980s, after Mr. Abílio’s retirement, the engineering company was sold and the remainecent family business changed to real estate, until 2015, when Mr. Abílio grandsons founded AWANTT Engenharia, retaking the project started by their family members four decades ago.
