• Research and Development

Oran Pre-Cast is constantly looking at new opportunities to develop and expand our range of precast products. Our composite precast flat slab system was the first example of such a system in the Irish market.

 

The company is involved in a number of on-going research projects, being carried out in collaboration with the Department of Civil Engineering, National University of Ireland, Galway. These include PhD research projects on how the thermal performance of our specialist precast products influences the indoor environment, and an investigation into the performance of specialised precast connections in accordance with BS EN 13747.

 

In addition to the above we are involved in a consortium that have submitted proposals for 3 research projects under the Horizon 2020 framework. Horizon 2020 is a significant European Union initiative aimed at securing Europe’s global competitiveness by driving economic growth and creating jobs through word class research and innovation.
