Strategy

Intelligent growth for sustainable success.

PORR deliberately focuses on its core competency: construction. With our strategy of intelligent growth, we concentrate on the result, not on production output.

Based on our consistent growth strategy, we have significantly expanded our market position in Austria – the most important market for the PORR Group – in recent years. Thanks to cooperation with all key peronnel within the Group, we can provide our customers full service in Austria – from building construction and civil engineering through to infrastructure construction and environmental engineering. Employees of PORR in Austria also implement large tunnelling and railway construction projects abroad.

We promote entrepreneurial behaviour and teamwork. In addition, clear responsibilities, streamlined and flexible structures, transparent management and fast decision-making processes are key success factors. We are also working intensively on the topics of the future in the construction industry: digitalisation and innovation. This makes us a dynamic company with strong growth potential.

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

Digitalisation is one of the most important topics in the construction industry. PORR has been working intensively for many years on the topics of the future such as Building Information Modelling (BIM), paperless construction sites and the new world of work. The reason for this is plain to see: new technologies allow us to realise construction projects more quickly, more efficiently, more cost-effectively 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 knowhow 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.

Innovation is what makes the difference. It yields competitive advantages. Innovation has played a central role at PORR from its very beginnings: as far back as the start of the 20th century, the inventions of the civil engineer and company’s namesake – Arthur Porr – led to a significant breakthrough in concrete construction.

Today the passion for innovation at PORR permeates everything we do and drives us forward everyday: every single PORRian is responsible for innovation. Their new ideas and creative concepts make PORR fit for the future. This is why we have established a central contact point at PORR: the “Technology Management and Innovation” department. It offers advice and support to our employees from the operating business.
