INOVATEC ASSOCIATED CONSULTANTS was founded in 2000 by its current technical director, the civil engineer Jonas Silvestre Medeiros, who brought along the experience of working as a professor and researcher of the Escola Politécnica da Universidade de São Paulo. A pioneer company in rationalizing building construction, with a know-how derived from years of study, research, problem solving and design of different types of projects. Inovatec develops designs and consultancy solutions for partition and façade walls and cladding
systems, also offering a wide set of services that enable us to solve entirely the building envelope. Inovatec acts throughout all national territory, mainly in São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro and João Pessoa embracing the commercial, services, residential, hotel, public and social, recreational and industrial sectors. 

INOVATEC trails its path under the leadership of its technical director and relies on a multidisciplinary team of associate professionals. 

We are a pioneer company in the area of building construction rationalizing, gathering a know-how that is a result of our experience of years studying, researching, solving problems and designing different types of projects.
Inovatec Associated Consultants is the first consultancy company in Brazil to elaborate DESIGNS FOR ADHERED CLADDING PRODUCTIONThe designs are developed from our own methodology, based on the PhD thesis of engineer Jonas Silvestre Medeiros, our technical director. This methodology uses the building rationalization as the main tool to integrate the structural, architectural and masonry designs - avoiding pathological problems and minimizing costs.
Our participation has been essential for the success of a new façade cladding solution known as VENTILATED FAÇADE. We took part on the introduction of this technology by performing a consultancy that analyzed the system viability in Brazil and designing the first building with a ventilated façade in the country - Ed. Jurubatuba - where the system  was built using extruded ceramic boards.
A few years ago we up skilled and started to design façade wall systems in LIGHT STEEL FRAME and CEMENT BOARDS.

The company know-how specially embraces walls systems, cladding and waterproofing for buildings, both conventional and industrialized. As noticeable on the page "SERVICES" of our website, we have been working in designs and consultancies using a wide range of technologies. Our main activity is to develop detailed designs that are integrated with other systems and are suitable to the execution of each construction and its own characteristics.
As researchers, we are specialized in searching and understanding or even creating new technical solutions, enhancing our designs or expanding our service portfolio. 
Browse our pages and understand why we became a synonym of technology and innovation in our areas of work.
