CAPECO is the Peruvian Chamber of Construction, established in 1958 to represent companies and individuals working in the building industry. It promotes quality standards, safety and ethical construction practices to improve living conditions and increase competitiveness in international markets.
It offers news, information, support of innovative initiatives and a calendar of events at national and regional level. It is member of the Inter-American Federation of the Construction Industry (FIIC), which includes national chambers of the construction industry from 18 countries in Latin America.
CAPECO’s vision is to contribute to national economic development, stimulate public policies for strategic changes in the sector and generate value for its members through national and international representation, and provision of services.
In March 2021 it launched the first Construction Innovation Week to present the national path to digital transformation, the companies involved and demonstrate how it could accelerate technological innovation, generate new trends for residential living and forge crucial partnership with academic researchers to stimulate knowledge transfer.
