Ferrovial Agroman ( is the flagship company heading up the construction division of Ferrovial, one of the world's leading groups specialised in infrastructure and cities, operating through its Services, Toll Roads, Construction and Airports divisions. It has over half a century experience of forward-looking projects and continues to strive to make a difference in the world of infrastructure and services and, therefore, in society.

Since 1999 Ferrovial Agroman carries out all kinds of unique civil engineering, construction and industrial projects also representing an international benchmark in transport infrastructure having built more than 470 km of tunnels, 3,900 km of highways, 15,000 km of roads and 4,600 km of railroad (including 700 km of high-speed railroad). It has firmly established its international position, which has grown consistently in recent years accounting for 75% of sales and backlog in 2014.

Ferrovial identifies innovation as a strategic tool for addressing the global challenges facing the world of infrastructures. The company pursues its innovation policy through an open innovation model. This involves creating an open process and ecosystem for partners to enhance innovation through the exchange of ideas outside the organization.

The company focuses its innovation efforts in the areas of energy efficiency and innovative construction aiming to position itself as a benchmark in Spain and around the world in the development of intelligent infrastructure products and services. Within the innovative construction area projects aiming to develop technologies, processes and products to improve the productivity and environmental sustainability of construction activity in all of its areas are promoted and developed.

The SAFEWAY initiative is particularly focused on diverse aspects related to the construction and management of transport infrastructures which are two of the main activities of the company. In this context, Ferrovial Agroman experience includes the delivery of more than 700 km of high-speed rail, 4,400km of permanent way, constructing station infrastructure in congested urban and environmentally sensitive areas. We have constructed more than 300 bridges and viaducts, including complex bridge replacements / bridge jacking schemes. In 2016, we participate in the maintenance of more than 1,000 kms of High-Speed lines and more than 3,000 kms of conventional lines.

Ferrovial Agroman has delivered more than 1,300 km of tunnels, many of them for railway projects, in all ground types. Using all types of TBM’s, we have a detailed working knowledge through experience of all tunnelling methods and utilisation of equipment from all the major global manufacturers. We currently have nine TBMs, one of which is 15.15m diameter - the biggest in the world when first introduced.

The company has directly employed technical and manage rail skill to execute multidisciplinary projects in-house or through our established supply chain. Projects such as the Heathrow Post T5 Baggage Transfer Tunnel demonstrate our skill in working safely and effectively in some of the world’s most demanding transport environments. We are able to integrate all disciplines successfully. We employ innovation and techniques such as modularisation and offsite assembly to overcome the challenges posed by constrained sites and sensitive operational environments.

All these multidisciplinary projects are directly related to transport infrastructures. For this reason, and takin into account the general theme of the project, this huge expertise is a key aspect to achieve the objectives of the project and improve the resilience and feasibility of the transportation system.
