Strategy

Intelligent growth for sustainable success.

PORR has targeted its efforts on the core competence; the construction business: We direct our focus to results in this case, not to production capacity. For us, this means Intelligent Growth.

On the basis of our consistent growth strategy, we have in past years increased our market position significantly in Germany - the second most important market of the PORR Group. Also thanks to the co-operation of all competent personnel within the Group, we can offer full service to our customers in Germany - extending from building construction, through civil engineering, to infrastructure construction and environmental technology.

We promote business activity and working in teams. In addition, clear responsibilities, lean, flexible structures, transparent management and rapid decision-making are central factors in our success. We  occupy ourselves intensely with future themes within the building sector: Digitalisation and innovation. This makes us a dynamic company with strong growth potential.

Digitalisation: PORR is right on the track for paperless construction sites.

Digitalisation has also come to the construction industry. At PORR we are in an advanced position as regards digitalisation and will continue to increase our market presence here.

For some years we have been intensely involved in future themes, such as Building Information Modelling (BIM), the paperless construction site and the new world of work. The reason is obvious: With new technologies, we can realise building projects faster, more cost-efficiently, and above all, more transparently.

Under the motto Roadmap 2020 a comprehensive project for process optimisation is currently under way within the PORR Group. In future, all processes in PORR will be to a large extent digitalised, for the most part paperless and thus more efficient. In this way we can make use of our resources in a way targeted even more to our core Business.

We are committed to know-how transfer.

Innovation involves exploiting the full potential from a range of different perspectives. This is why PORR works closely with partners from the worlds of science and research on all of its home markets. Here we focus on long-term cooperation. Most often we are involved in multiyear projects for developing complex, technical processes in civil and structural engineering as well as for conserving resources.

Innovation permeates everything we do.

Innovations make a difference. They create competitive advantages. At PORR innovation has played a central role since its beginning: As early as at the beginning of the 20th century inventions by the civil engineer and the man who gave his name to our Group, Arthur Porr, have led to decisive breakthroughs in concrete design.

Today the innovation idea is all-pervasive in PORR and is a daily driving force: Every PORR employee is responsible for innovations. Their new ideas and creative concepts make PORR fit for the future. For this we have created a central contact point within PORR: The Department "Technology Management and Innovation". It offers our employees consultation and support in the operational sectors.

The digital construction site: where design becomes reality.

With us at PORR we follow BIM not only three-dimensionally. We have meanwhile arrived at the 5D planning system: With the fourth dimension we include the time aspect, with the fifth dimension the costs. This brings about cost savings, fault minimisation, shorter decision-making phases and an improved flow of information. All participants in the project profit from this: Our customers, our partners - and of course we ourselves.

As we can see, investing in the future today really pays off.
