provides consulting services in road, civil and geotechnical engineering
and also in transportation, by means of an interdisciplinary group made
up of professionals specialized in civil engineering, hydraulic
engineering, road engineering, railroad engineering, geology,
geotechnical engineering, transportation, asphalt, concrete,
architecture, civil structures, computational modeling and environment.
The quality offered in the service we provide is based not only on the
experience given by every member of the team (each one of them having
not less than ten-year experience in each particular field) but also on
human sensitivity conferred to each case in particular, thus aiming to
generate the best-quality engineering, both on a technical basis and
also on a social and sustainable basis.
Our company emblem was inspired by the Chakana Cross (or Chakana Inka),
a geometrical figure used by the native Andean cultures, a symbol of
ultimate value in the Andean cosmogonical conception. The logo that
identifies this company today comes from the blending of the Andean
cosmovision icon and a typical road sign with its distinctive colors (yellow
The etymology of the word "chakana" traces its origin to the quechua
words chaka (bridge, union) and hanan (high, up, big).
According to researchers, the Chakana cross, Andean cross or Solar Inka
cross emerges from the deep observation of the Southern Cross
constalation, which is made up of four stars: Alpha, Beta, Gamma and
The Chakana cross allowed the inkas to solve mathematical, geodesic,
philosophical and social problems. Through the Chakana they designed
city layouts. Its four points represent the four Tahuantisuyo regions:
North (Chinchaysuyo), South (Collasuyo), East (Antisuyo) and West (Contisuyo).
They also represent solstices and equinoxes.
The Inkas stood out for their engineering works and, mostly, for
creating a road system (Qapac Ñan), which encompassed populated areas,
storing facilities, check points, and which today represents the “most
significant technological work in Pre-Hispanic America”. This network
covered 14,000 miles. (though some researchers estimate it covered up to
