Role within the project
- Embedding structural and environmental sensors in pre-cast systems
- Involved in testing of embedded sensors
- Supporting related self-inspection and quality check measures
Oran Pre-Cast is one of the largest and most progressive indigenous pre-cast manufacturers in Ireland. The pre-cast systems are manufactured through the factory-controlled and cost-effective processes with no disposed waste or by-products. This guarantees high quality products at a reduced cost and a minimum design/manufacturing/construction time. All reinforcement is accurately located and products always meet customer specifications. Oran Pre-Cast’s range of products includes hollowcore flooring, beams and columns for portal and industrial frames, stairs, as well as twin wall and plate flooring.
Oran Pre-Cast prefabrication process allows for mechanical and electrical products to be embedded in the structure. Oran Pre-Cast has vast experience in embedding structural (electrical resistance and vibrating wire strain gauges) and environmental (thermistors) sensors in its pre-cast systems, both at the pre-cast manufacturing and in situ stage. Moreover, Oran Pre-Cast can provide industrial scale demonstrator buildings equipped with embedded structural and environmental monitoring systems.
