To TORRESCAMARA , innovation is a core strategic pillar .
In an increasingly burgeoning market , maintaining and improving the company's competitiveness is only possible through the generation of new proprietary technology solutions that solve specific construction issues, which continuously occur in the execution of the various works of the company.As a fundamental part of their production activities, TORRESCAMARA develops a variety of research, technological development and innovation tasks, aiming much of their work to generate a high added-value, either by the introduction of innovative materials or by the development of construction processes for optimizing and improving the quality of the final product, all resulting in the satisfaction and benefit of its customers. TORRESCAMARA performs these R&D&I projects with internal teams and collaborating centres such as laboratories, Universities and other Centres of Technological Innovation.
Among major projects are:

The main objective of the project is to design, build and validate a system based on precast concrete pieces to replace existing railway granular transition wedges, allowing to a better stiffness transition, increasing transport comfort and safety and reducing construction time and costs of implementation and maintenance.

The developed technology is protected by patent.
The project has been funded by the CDTI and the Plan-E.

This project studies vibrations generated in urban areas by the railway, their transmission trough the ground and their effects on people and buildings surrounding the infrastructure. First, in situ
measurements were made on in-service tracks, which have allowed numerical modeling of generation the generation, propagation and reception of vibration. From the models, different constructive strategies have been designed and implemented as prototypes in a full-scale test, determining the applicability of different structural sections and materials for the attenuation of the vibrations generated by rail.

The project has been funded by the Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness.

The project develops a number of tools for the design of piled rafts, allowing for the optimization of the studied foundations from technical and economic standpoints, improving design criteria commonly used. Analytical models of varying complexity have been developed and validated by field measurements in two buildings built by TORRESCAMARA, achieving a foundation optimization maintaining its safety and functionality. The project started in February 2009 and ended in June 2010.

The project has been funded by the CDTI and the Technology Fund Program. 
At present, there is an increasing, worldwide interest in decreasing the amount of water produced and lost (26% in Spain), a high percentage corresponding to leakage at distribution system, in order to improve the utilization of a scarce resource, reduce energy costs of the distribution systems and water treatment, etc., contributing to a sustainable development. The project objective is to develop and test a new leak detection system water supply pipes based on Time Domain Reflectivity (TDR).

The aim of the project is to develop a monitoring system, embarked on rail vehicles for the detection and prediction of rail derailment, increasing safety throughout the transport network. The new PRE-Derail solution seeks to identify the contact forces in the wheel-rail contact indirectly from the small movements which occur in such contact, allowing thus to determine and predict in a reliable way the potential risk of derailment.
