Founded in January 1967, as Empresa Geral de Obras Públicas Terrestres e Marítimas – Zagope S.A.R.L., current ZAGOPE – CONSTRUÇÕES E ENGENHARIA, S.A., changed its corporate name after being acquired by Group Andrade Gutierrez.
In 1969, Zagope was awarded its first project work: Odivelas dam, which showcased the excellence of the work developed, turning this project the visiting card for future quality projects.
In 1988, the company was acquired by the Brazilian Group Andrade Gutierrez S.A. and started to diversify the type of projects it developed, such as: metros, airports, tunnels, among others. Thus, in the ensuing years, the company was able to consolidate its position in the national market of civil construction and public works.
As from 2002, internationalization became a priority goal and the company tried to endow itself with the resources to give substance to this strategy, which was achieved in 2005 upon entry in the African and Asian markets.
