GPO is a multi-sector, global engineering company.

We design and manage the construction of transportation infrastructure, buildings, facilities for industrial use and the Automotive Industry while improving our environment in the process.

History

The origins of the Group go back to 1985 with the foundation of GPO Ingeniería, the first company and head of GPO, with the aim of providing engineering aligned with the concept of integral management of public works. GPO Ingeniería took off as a company thanks to the Barcelona Olympic Games in 1992, as it contributed to the country's progress by being involved in the largest infrastructure projects.

In 2017, GPO Group enters into a partnership with Dar Group (www.dargroup.com), through which Dar achieves a 30% equity interest in GPO. The reached agreement allows us joining an international first-rate professional network and, thanks to the Dar Group companies, GPO Group is rendering services to its clients in the five continents.

We have grown into a global engineering and architecture Group that is thoroughly involved in the development of railway and roadway projects, as well as in designing and managing the construction of fundamental public facilities, such as hospitals, schools, court rooms, prisons and cultural centers.

Currently, GPO Group is made up by the following companies:

A dedicated department manages all computing resources, ranging from a corporate intranet with fibre optic IP-PN Main link to all the necessary equipment for developing our databases and technical applications, as well the implementation of the latest technological advances.

GPO is one of the first consulting companies to be ISO 9001-compliant, a certification that adds to its ISO 14001, which guarantees that all our services are carried out under pre-established quality parameters, respecting the terms and budgets agreed upon with each client and minimizing the negative impact on the environment.
