Between 1898 and 1929 various business initiatives that introduced reinforced concrete in its architecture developed in Catalonia. This article studies the following four companies: Anónima Claudio Duran - Construcciones Monier, Marial Hermanos - Sociedad Colectiva, Construcciones y Pavimentos, S. A. and Material y Obras, S. A. Only thorough knowledge of the production complexities that studies these companies, their technicians and works in all its complexity will allow us to assess how reinforced concrete transformed the construction sector, with new companies of a different productive scale. However, the depressed economic cycle of 1929-1952 weighed down any initiative and artificially lengthened what was left of traditional "Catalan construction".
