How does digital concrete monitoring work?
- Track concrete temperature and compressive strength in real time.
- Prevent problems by being automatically notified of deviations
- Access comprehensive digital documentation
- Build more sustainably with green construction
How does digital concrete monitoring help in practice?
Increase and quality of safety
- Daily life on a construction site is quite hectic. Time and cost pressures are high. Nevertheless, quality and safety come first. This also applies to concrete casting. In practice, it usually looks like this: As soon as the concrete truck arrives at the construction site, test specimens have to be made for the fracture tests and other samples to ensure the quality of the concrete mix. Based on their maturation, a decision is made as to when the formwork can be removed. The problem with this conventional method is the different conditions. Even if the specimens are right next to it, there is no guarantee that they will develop exactly like the concrete on the construction site. So the specimens that go through the fracture tests in the lab don’t necessarily have the same condition. If something goes wrong here, the consequences are enormous.
- One of the main problems that ConcR sensors solve is the long waiting time. It takes time for concrete to reach its compressive strength. Sometimes, however, such a long waiting period is not necessary at all. This is where real-time monitoring by concrete sensors can help. It allows you to optimize your project schedule and save time while maintaining high safety standards. For each cast element, digital concrete monitoring can save you between one and four days. So on average, construction time can be reduced by 30 days. This corresponds to an average time saving of 24 percent.

Case study: Concrete savings potential through digital concrete monitoring
- By using the ConcR sensors, the formwork could be removed an average of two days earlier than planned for each concreting operation. This saved a total of 33 days of construction time.
- The formwork was immediately reused in the next cycle, so that about one third of the formwork was saved here.
