Use of advanced concretes with improved performance properties for construction projects and blue growth applications
Summary:
A Spanish SME expert in special concretes provides integral service in projects that require advanced concretes, designing and selecting the most appropriate according to required performance. They seek partners from civil engineering, construction, industrial and blue-growth sectors for a technical or research collaboration. The goal is to explore new sectors where very-high and ultra-high-performance fiber-reinforced concretes (VHPFRC -Y- UHPFRC) advantages add value to clients and stakeholders.
Description:
Special concretes are increasingly being used in the last years. They can provide significant advantages in costs, times and workforce in almost every project. However, the most relevant key factor for success is the expertise of the team responsible for the design and implementation of the project.

A Spanish company, born from the result of seven years of research on the field of very-high and ultra-high-performance fiber-reinforced concretes (VHPFRC -Y- UHPFRC), in the last three years has designed, calculated and provided technical assistance for the development of the first three UHPFRC footbridges in Spain. These structures count with improved designs, very reduced maintenance requirements and similar costs than steel-made or concrete alternatives.

The Spanish engineering firm is then specialized in UHPFRC, self-compacting concretes, fiber reinforced concretes, and other special materials. With a strong R-Y-D component, they provide an integral service in projects that include special concretes: material cost and properties optimization, calculations, elements redesign, technical assistance during the precasting, and control during and after the construction.

Furthermore they use the advanced concretes for much more than this: blue growth applications, panel housing, urban furniture, easy-driving sheetpiles... Wherever steel and concrete are two possible solutions, the advanced concretes can provide a more cost-effective solution. At the moment, all the innovations integrated have been demonstrated to be cost-efficient, satisfying both clients and users.

The company counts with two PhD Civil Engineers, two Civil Engineers, and a team of technical experts who are willing to integrate advanced material technologies in different sectors. The group is highly skilled in the field of advanced materials, precast concrete elements, project management, and business strategy. These strengths are combined to add value in very different projects such as: :

· Optimization of a precast concrete elements to reduce costs or improve performance
· Technical assistance for the use of in-situ special concretes in civil engineering applications
· Integration of advanced materials in a structure to minimize resources, transport and costs
· Disruptive applications in non-construction sectors, as aquaculture, industry or urban furniture
· Integration of Building Information Modelling (BIM) in the projects developed

The company is interested in being contacted by potential partners from the construction sectors (footbridges, blue growth, urbanism, civil engineering) in order to develop technical or research cooperation agreements for new applications where the performance of advanced concretes can be exploited.

Moreover the company is also open to receive opportunities of collaboration in research projects to carry out the development of new materials with new properties and applications, mainly addressed to the blue growth. A research cooperation agreement will be established in this case.
Advantages and Innovations:
The design is much slenderer. The aesthetics, colors and surface finishing are markedly improved. The referred advanced concretes can extremely reduce the resources consumption, reduce the transport needs if the elements are precast. These facts can provide a short term economic benefit. The economic benefits also exist at medium and long term, as the durability of UHPFRC is very high and maintenance is extremely reduced.

Economic benefits are obtained when a structure or element are redesign taking the full advantage of the advanced concrete properties.

Partner sought

Type and Role of Partner Sought:
The company looks for partners from the construction sectors (footbridges, blue growth, urbanism, civil engineering) with who design and implement projects that require the use of materials with special characteristics such as the ones in the advanced concretes.

The company would also be interested in being contacted by organizations (companies, research centres and universities) to carry out the development of new materials with new properties and applications, mainly addressed to the blue growth.
