More than a century building cities

The company initially operated in Catalonia, where it developed its expertise in the construction sector. When it was hired in 1911 to provide sewer cleaning and maintenance services in Barcelona the history of the company changed. At this point FCC became a pioneer in diversification.

The parent company, FCC Group, was born in 1992 from the merger of two companies: Construcciones y Contratas (1944) and Fomento de Obras y Construcciones (1900). Since then, we have worked to become a company that delivers quality services to citizens every day.
