We excel in the construction and management of hospital infrastructures
Back in 1996, when the P3 system was first implemented in Chile, we secured our first contract to build and operate the toll road between Los Vilos and La Serena. Since then, we have invested close to US$7 billion in various projects throughout our three business divisions, from Arica to Puerto Montt.
These include 2 airports, 14 roads, and 7 hospitals. Through our subsidiary company, Sacyr Concesiones Agua, we run four integrated water cycle management firms in the regions of Antofagasta and Metropolitana.
We offer our services to more than 550,000 people through 5 sanitation companies.

Innovating to improve people's lives
We laid the first road surface in Chile that incorporates pre-treated pulverized rubber (RARx). This innovation allows us to repair and build roads with a lower environmental impact. The reason is that this material uses mixtures of polymers from scrapped tires. We estimate that, for every kilometer of road built using this technology, it’s possible to prevent approximately 100 bus and truck tires from ending up in landfills.
To develop and validate this technique, various trial sections had to be build at different sites managed by Sacyr within the Metropolitan region.
These kinds of composite materials have already proven their functional and structural advantages, from a social, economic, and environmental perspective, in other countries. They reduce noise pollution, dampening down traffic noise by up to 5 decibels. They also increase the service life of the road surface and give a new lease of life to industrial waste such as scrapped tires, which can be reused to build and repair roads.
