Based on methodologies perfected over more than two decades, innovative technological solutions and a team with extensive experience, the GOA system is the national standard in the management of special structures, with widespread adoption by the main national owners.
The coverage and solidity of the asset management principles inherent to the GOA system allow its implementation to a more comprehensive range of structural and geotechnical assets, referring its successful application in: vertical signaling gantries, containment structures, slopes, infrastructure public structures (water supply networks), industrial facilities, among others.
The success of this system has allowed its internationalization in the European market and countries like Mozambique, Malawi, Brazil and China.
