SANJOSE aspires to be a leader in technological development. This is why research and innovation are priorities for all lines of business the Group is active in; it is taught to all its employees and their creative contributions are recognized.
The R&D&I policy is geared toward the application of new construction techniques, toward strengthening the applied technology, to optimizing processes and resources, and to finding, through innovation, ongoing opportunities for improvement.
SANJOSE Technologies and Tecnocontrol have been the first companies in the Group to implement a R+D+i System and a Manual of Procedures that comply with the requirements of UNE 166002:2006 standard.

The type of activities carried out in this line of business demands continuous innovation; both because of the evolution of the technology used in the projects and because of the Group's strategy, which promotes entry into new markets that demand a high value added component and high level of technical specialization.
The initiatives in R+D+i are focused mainly on the sector of Specialised Facilities’ Maintenance, Energy Efficiency, Renewable Energies, the Environment and Industrial Automation.
Within the different projects currently underway and in collaboration with the research departments of poly-technical universities, we are developing projects for research and innovation in construction technology. Among them are the studies made of the preservation of the environment and environmental conditions in the execution of large infrastructure projects and the studies to improve Prevention of Jobsite Risks in special highly technical work units.
For informational purposes, we mention the following projects: study of hydraulic jacks for underwater tensioning; protocols for flights close to structures and means of transportation; systems for monitoring voltage on tension wires; methods to site projects depending on sensitive areas determined by acoustical measurements; methods to locate avifauna populations depending on the activity generated by infrastructure work; and design of emergency evacuation systems by tunnel in transportation infrastructure.
