Smart Concrete is a solution for ready-mixed concrete producers that uses Giatec's wireless concrete sensor for monitoring temperature and strength of early-age concrete in real time, allowing for quick decision-making during the concrete curing process. The maturity method for determining strength of new in-place concrete without breaking concrete cylinders is becoming increasingly popular across North America but requires a prior calibration of the mix, says the company.
Smart Concrete is offered as the only solution available that allows for the customers of ready-mix producers to select their desired mix calibrations through the Smart Concrete app and share critical, real-time data with all project stakeholders.
"The demand for our Smart Concrete solution is growing as contractors are looking for the simplest way to get this critical data," says Sarah McGuire, Director of Sales for Giatec. "We are honored to have a premier company like Redi-Mix champion and succeed with our technology."
Using its solution, says the company, ready-mixed concrete producers and their clients have reduced reliance on cylinder break tests and have helped save days and even weeks off project schedules, as well as increased the profitability of their pours by up to 20%.
U.S. Concrete has previously successfully implemented the Smart Concrete solution in the San Francisco Bay market, says the company.
