As one of our main axes of management, innovation keeps our knowledge-based services at the forefront of technology. We foster innovation through R&D, participating in numerous projects, often partnering with clients, Universities and Technological and Research Institutions, while our dedicated R&D Committee motivates, monitors and informs.
Vision and goals
TYPSA aims to be an international benchmark for innovative solutions in the fields of civil engineering, buildings, renewable energy, and the environment.
This vision is the origin of the practical nature of TYPSA’s efforts in innovation; of its commitment to a focus on solutions that improve societies through the quality of their cities, infrastructure, buildings and natural environment.
To this end, TYPSA can count on the exceptional capacity of its people, its track record in applied innovation, the contribution of specialized subsidiaries, the support of its technology-oriented departments, its consolidated innovation management system, and the commitment to make all these pillars of innovation grow. TYPSA recognizes that digitalization and new data-related technologies, combined with technical know-how, play a central role in all its markets.
