With a remarkable trajectory in the private construction market, Henrique Faria's move to America promises to bring immense benefits to U.S. engineering firms. As one of Brazil's leading construction professionals, Faria's extensive experience and proven track record position him as a valuable asset to the American engineering industry.

Faria's journey began in 2014 when he joined one of Brazil's largest high-end construction companies. His inaugural project involved the construction of a 1500m² house in Rio de Janeiro's prestigious region, designed by renowned architect Andre Piva. This complex undertaking required building an inclined plane with three stops (floors), utilizing unconventional construction techniques. Notably, a cable car was constructed to transport guests between floors. The project, with a budget totaling 20 million reais, demonstrated Faria's proficiency in executing non-standard construction techniques with great precision.

In subsequent years, Faria continued to shine as he undertook projects in the upscale neighborhoods of Ipanema and Leblon. From start to finish, he spearheaded the execution of two projects, overseeing every aspect from foundation and structure to roofing, installations, and landscaping. Additionally, Faria managed third-party contractors, collaborated with architects, supervised interns and administrative assistants, and skillfully handled financial and physical management with clients and the company's board. Throughout his tenure, Faria received consistent praise from clients for his delivery, quality, interpersonal relationships, and unwavering commitment.

Faria's expertise extended to the renovation of high-end apartments in lpanema. One of these projects involved a comprehensive retrofit of a building's facade, including a complete change of coatings and frames, as well as upgrading the building's functional components such as energy and gas systems. The result was a remarkable facade that stands out as a testament to meticulous attention to detail along one of Rio de Janeiro's stunning coastlines.

Parallel to his project commitments, Faria actively participated in technical lectures on product innovation, new construction methods, equipment advancements, quality control systems, and process development. His dedication to staying abreast of industry advancements further enhances his value as a construction professional.

In 2017, Faria faced a significant challenge as he managed a project in Guaruja, a coastal city in Sao Paulo. The project required a seasoned engineer with a deep understanding of the company's DNA and the ability to tackle a demanding project with tight cost and time constraints. Faria's detachment, excitement for new challenges, and outstanding leadership skills played a vital role in his selection for this opportunity. Despite the complexities, Faria successfully delivered the project, meeting high-quality standards and exceeding client expectations.

The following year, Faria took on the construction of a luxurious 1,000m² residence on the coast of Sao Paulo. Collaborating with Bernardes Arquitetura, one of Brazil's most esteemed architecture firms, Faria faced yet another cost challenge imposed by the client. However, he managed to deliver the project below the estimated budget, showcasing his ability to optimize costs while ensuring top-notch quality. The project's technical intricacies, such as constructing a foundation in sandy soil and achieving precise design finishes, were expertly managed by Faria's comprehensive understanding of construction processes.

In addition to these achievements, Faria excelled in overseeing a project involving the completion of a rigorous checklist with over 1,200 items. He led a team of five people responsible for managing over 30 companies and more than 100 employees. This meticulous attention to detail and his effective leadership ensured that every item on the checklist was completed and approved, resulting in the receipt of nearly 1 million reais previously withheld.
