Calper comes to life. A small group of investors invited Ricardo Ranauro, founder and president of the construction company, and his friend Guilherme Pernambuco to erect a building in Recreio dos Bandeirantes. Ricardo did not know it yet, but this would be the first of many projects for which he would be responsible throughout his career.
Calper's first project
Ricardo Ranauro and his college friend Guilherme Pernambuco formalize their partnership. The company builds its first residential project in Recreio dos Bandeirantes, located in Rio de Janeiro’s West Zone.

Guilherme Pernambuco leaves the partnership and the cousins Ricardo and Fabrício become the only owners of the company, which is named Construtora Calper.
