Real-time monitoring of your in-situ casts

Monitoring construction projects and waiting for the concrete to cure is a labour-intensive process, where the installation of the sensors, retrieving the data loggers, transferring the data to a computer and analyzing the data takes the better part of a day. With Maturix™ In-situ as an integrated part of your processes, starting to monitor the temperature and maturity takes less than a minute per sensor. All data is transferred wirelessly to the Sensohive Platform and analyzed automatically, giving you instant insight or alarms when concerns arise. You end up with top-rank documentation – and essentially building better buildings.

IoT Applications in Construction: Concrete Curing Monitoring

Construction has one of the worst lag times when it comes to embracing new ideas. This lethargy is due to complexity, the high-risks as well as the conservative character of construction companies. Despite all these barriers, new technologies have proven to have a tremendously beneficial effect on the overall performance, productivity, safety and efficiency in this industry. It’s essential for contractors to consider the Internet of Things (IoT) devices for concrete works at their job sites.

How IoT Is Enhancing Structural Health Monitoring (SHM)

The need for reliable and timely data in construction and critical infrastructure management is clear. However, until recently, data collection for structural health monitoring (SHM) has mainly been a manual exercise where engineers have to go out in the field to make key measurements. The challenge of manual data collection is that it’s slow, unreliable and highly inefficient.

Digital Twins vs. Building Information Modeling (BIM)

There are some key similarities between a Digital Twin of a built environment and BIM (Building Information Modeling) software. BIM focuses on a building's design and construction. A Digital Twin models how people interact with built environments.
Navigating the technology landscape in most industries can sometimes feel like a nightmarish game of mad libs. The jargon can be unending, and, with the pace of technological change accelerating every year, it’s no wonder industries are slow to define and articulate best practices. For commercial real estate, the last 5 years have been transformative as organizations start to move beyond mere efficiency of space and start to consider the bigger picture. Integral to this shift has been the importance of data modeling within commercial real estate organizations.

As we talked about in a previous series of blogs, “Digital Twins” are quickly becoming the go-to for creating robust data models about all aspects of a building at various stages of its life cycle. However, astute observers will notice some key similarities between what’s now called a Digital Twin of a built environment and Building Information Modeling (or “BIM”) software.
