Construction As A Vehicle For Innovation

With more than 20 years of activity, Vector Mais is one of Portugal’s leading companies in the fit-out of interiors for offices, hotels, retail and healthcare spaces.

Celebrating its 20th anniversary in 2020, Vector Mais, founded by Duarte Aires and Sandro Marques, was established to offer an innovative service. “The multinationals were looking for a company in Portugal that would offer an integrated service: from budgeting and project preparation to building work and supplying the furniture. They wanted a company to do a quality turnkey project. That’s where we made the difference.” This
commitment to quality and innovation continues to this day, earning the largest Portuguese and international companies’ trust.

From the start, Vector Mais has developed its business in two models: General Contractor or Design & Build. At first, following the project prepared by the client’s architects and engineers, Vector Mais develops the work as a general contractor, being responsible for the construction and technical installations. In the case of Design & Build, taking over the entire project, from interior architecture to building and furniture supply, and offering an integrated wall-to-wall service.

Sustainability in construction
Sustainability and innovation are increasingly important issues in the construction business, and Vector Mais has, over the past 20 years, implemented practices that improve its service and reducing the impact of its activity. In addition to ISO:9001 certification, which reinforces our commitment to the customer, the continuous improvement, and performance, Vector Mais has taken steps towards innovating through a sustainable attitude.

Besides reducing waste to a minimum and recycling the maximum amount of materials, Vector Mais has implemented solutions that lower energy consumption and increase the lifetime of materials, having participated in several projects with BREEAM, LEED and WELL certifications. Social responsibility has also been a significant commitment for us, promoting our employees’ best working conditions and consolidating relations with local suppliers, boosting the Portuguese industry.

A focus on Human Resources
Human Resources and how they are valued have always been essential for Vector Mais’ success, this being one of our differences from the competition. Making client satisfaction our primary aim, Vector Mais bases its projects on steady teamwork and training. The fact that we have employees who have worked at the company for many years is a reason for great satisfaction. But we’re also proud of their personal and professional growth, something the market recognises.
