Positioning

Traditional and Modern
IDEAC originated in the ADR Support Group from FDTE (Fundação para o Desenvolvimento Tecnológico da Engenharia), a national reference within the segment in Brazil and a direct link with Brazil’s preeminent engineering school, Escola Politécnica da Universidade de São Paulo (POLI-USP).

In over 45 years of services rendered to POLI-USP, FDTE worked in some of the largest projects for both State owned as well as private parties which in common required the best engineering and advanced technologies.

As a natural market movement – designed to avoid technical conflicts involving the ADR group in technical assistance and/or expert witness services – IDEAC was created, taking over some of the services previously rendered by FDTE itself.

As such, the IDEAC + FDTE partnership brings the ideal combination
of the traditional and the modern.

Proven Track Record
IDEAC’s technical coordination is the direct responsibility of the founding team of FDTE’s ADR Group, and its technical personnel is the same one that has acted successfully on behalf of that Group for the past 10 years.
