About us


DIACLASE was founded in 2006 for the purpose of developing projects and studies in the main areas of Civil Engineering, Geology/Geotechnics, Hydrogeology and Environment, and also to provide technical assistance to the execution of works.

The company, despite its recent foundation, counts with the participation of a specialised staff with vast experience in the referred areas, in order to provide high quality services, with competence and the required versatility to follow the increasing levels of challenge demanded on the recent past years.

The company also counts with a flexible outsourcing structure, with the purpose of dealing with the activities that don't belong to the core business of DIACLASE, from a technical point of view, but are essential to the company activity.

The global management of DIACLASE, as well as the project management and design, is assured by the company founding partners:

  • António Carlos Ambrósio

> Graduated in Civil Engineering (Instituto Superior Técnico - IST, Lisbon);

> Master of Science (M.Sc.) in Geotechnical Engineering (IST);

> Expert in Geotechnical Engineering (by the Portuguese Engineers Association).

  •  Raul António Simões Duarte

> Graduated in Geology by the Faculty of Sciences of the Lisbon University;

> Expert in Hydrogeology by the Complutense University of Madrid.

Concerning the geographical distribution of the company activity, besides the natural preponderance in Portugal (mainland and Autonomous Regions of Madeira and Azores), it is also being extended to the international markets in a gradual and consistent manner.
