The growing competitiveness of our socio-economic environment, the emergence of new development opportunities and the sharp reduction in the life cycles of products and services, lead to the definitive commitment of PREHORQUI. S.A. for R&D as the best weapon to lead a market as competitive as ours.
At the business level, it has been demonstrated in recent decades that a high level of R + D + i in companies implies an increase in their strength and competitiveness, since it allows their products or processes to differ positively from those of their competitors. At the social level, many of the results obtained are potentially generators of social advances in the form of quality of life, improvement of the environment and health.
In our sector lies the responsibility to industrialize concrete construction solutions, this huge task has been one of the objectives of PREHORQUI, SA that in recent years has worked in the development of new concrete, in increasing the durability of the product, in the application of new manufacturing technologies, but above all by facilitating the work of the architect with the development of products that are simply assembled on site, with the objective of zero risk in assembly and with unrivaled and verified technical characteristics on the finished product.
Today, PREHORQUISA leads a project funded by the MINECO (DIABLO), participates as a partner in another funded by the MINECO (ACTICEN) and manages with its own resources two other projects together with the Polytechnic University of Catalonia (PNFU) and engineers and professors of the Polytechnic University of Madrid (SIMULAMAT). All these projects, together with the recently completed ETIXc, financed by the CDTI, and ACUÑA, financed by the MICINN and MINECO, are detailed below.
ACUÑA: Prototype wedge-shaped parts for spillways.
DIABLO: Código de diseño de aliviaderos formados por cuñas.
ETIXc: Design code for spillways formed by wedges.
SIMULAMAT: Software for predicting concrete breakage test results.
PNFU: Prefabricated panels with pneumatic granulate.
ACTICEN: New sustainable concretes made with chemically-physically pre-activated ashes
