/ About Us

Construtora TEDESCO originated in the south of Brazil, with more than 60 years of tradition and active in the industrial, building and infrastructure markets with strong presence across the country.

As a result of it entrepreneurial spirit, TEDESCO was the first civil construction company in Rio Grande do Sul to receive an ISO 9002 certification from BVQI in 1998. In 2002, as a consolidation of the continuous managing and production improvement processes for the entire company, aiming quality, the company was recertified with ISO 9001:2000 in the “Civil Work Management” scope.

As an acknowledgement by the civil construction of Rio Grande do Sul, TEDESCO was honored three times by Sinduscon-RS with the title of “Builder of the Year” by Sinduscon Premium in 1996, 1997, and 1999. In 2000, the sindicate awarded the Claro Digital Tower with the title of “Work of the Year”. In 2015 and 2016, TEDESCO received two awards for confirming its team efforts and competence, the first one in relation to the Sinduscon-RS Gold Premium in the “Technological Highlight” category for constructing Mr. Shan corporative building. The second award is the result of the new building that was built at  Moinhos de Vento Hospital, which won recognition as a success case by the Mídia Group in the Expansion category.

On mid-2012, considering the country’s good growth expectations, TEDESCO teamed up with HTB, which became its majority shareholder, thus allowing access to its technical and management know-how and strengthening TEDESCO’s competitive differentials.
