Project Manager

GET - Gestão de Energia Térmica, Lda

GET its a dynamic company, with offices in OPorto, Lisbon, Maputo (Mozambique), and São Paulo (Brasil).I was attracted to GET for the its innovative approach on energy efficient solutions, the size of the projects and possibility to work with world renowned architects. From the time I came to GET, I already designed the HVAC systems for 4 hotels between 9000m2 and 11500m2, being one of them designed by the Pritzker prized Architect Eduardo Souto de Moura.My job as an Engineer and Project Manager at GET fully covers all aspects of design and execution of the HAVC system, from defining the solutions with architects, equipments selection, design of the solutions in 3D and to the final construction technical assistance, being also responsible to verify applied regulations and submit buildings to energy certifications.Coming to a company with 25 years experience I came to reinforce the technical staff of the Lisbon office, but with previously acquired experience, I implemented from the start new tools that facilitated dimensioning and gave the ability to design systems that can reduce the HVAC energy consumption.

Mar 2009 - Apr 2010

HVAC Department Manager

Joule - Projectos, Estudos e Coordenação, Lda

At Joule I responsible for coordinating the HVAC department, where I was project manager/designer and had one draughtsman.Joule was the company where I developed the integration with the activity of Project Engineer at all levels, from the first contact with the client to evaluate its needs, passing through the systems definition, coordination of the HVAC with architecture and all other building infrastructures, loads determination, equipments dimensioning and writing the HVAC specifications for construction.At this position I also started to make technical assistance of the HVAC construction, analysing construction proposals and checking project alternatives.To improve project quality I implemented new software tools to make the project design in 3D.Because Joule was a company specialized no electric infrastructures, I started to cooperate with colleges to design also the BMS solutions, being responsible for the HVAC BMS infrastructure.

Jul 2007 - Mar 2009

HVAC Project Developer

EACE - Engenheiros Associados, Consultores em Engenharia, Lda

In this work I learned to design HVAC systems and and all the regulatory implications needed around it.At first I was responsible to determine heating and cooling load requirements, ventilation requirements, coming then to select equipments and define systems.This was my fist experience in HVAC, so this was a fast learning experience, however I showed strong academic knowledge and quickly started to present solutions and being responsible for small projects, until I was in charge of designing bigger projects and being responsible for a small team of  draughtsman according to each project.

Personal tutor


Since I was finishing my graduation and during the post graduation program I was a personal tutor for several university subjects, namely: math, physics, hydraulics, thermodynamics

Mar 2005 - Dec 2006


Laboratory of Thermofluids, Combustion and Energy Systems - IN+ - Center for Inovation, Technology and Policy Research

Having achieved some good results in some subjects at university, I started making research even before finishing the graduation, and I received a scholarship to research from the MINKNOCK project when graduated, a project from the EU with the direction of Diamler Chrysler and participation of IST, AVL, Instituto Motori, Lund Institute of Technology, Ford, ITV and Shell, in which it was intended to minimize the knock effect on internal combustion engines.

Manuel Silvestre Guerreiro

Coming from a family with a long history in mechanics, my first job was with my own father, where a wide range of activities were held, like engines repair, vehicles maintenance, farm equipments construction, etc.


Sep 2005 - Apr 2008

Masters Postgraduate

Instituto Superior Técnico

Masters (previous to Bologna process) in Mechanical Engineering (specialized Energy Studies).

This was a post-graduation course focused on disciplines like Energy Resources, CFD, Turbulence and Experimental Analysis.These were subjects that interested me a lot, following an education directed to energy studies.

Sep 1998 - Jul 2004


Instituto Superior Técnico

MEng. (named “Licenciatura” previous to Bologna process) in Mechanical Engineering (specialized in Thermodynamics).

This was a 5 year graduation program in engineering, in which I achieved to be one of the top 5% students in the course and being invited to make research ever before graduation.

Thermodynamics was the area that most captivated me because of its tight relation to energy management.
