The Launch of ConcreteDNA Pro Marks The World’s First Digital Twin of Concreting

November 30, 2020

ConcreteDNA’s new product tier ConcreteDNA Pro, integrates concrete sensor data with building information modelling and provides in-depth material performance analytics to form the first iteration of a real-time digital twin.

The enabling hardware behind the platform is a powerful embedded sensor called Converge Signal which measures the compressive strength of concrete as it cures. The new cellular gateway introduced in Pro, Converge Signal, automatically transmits sensor data to the cloud in real time. Previously, concrete data had to be collected manually via the Converge app.

Pro introduces concrete performance and temperature differential analytics to the platform, which means project teams can track and ensure concrete is meeting expected standards. With this added certainty, cube testing procedures can be reduced, resulting in lower carbon emissions. Thanks to ConcreteDNA Pro, Gammon saved over 110 tonnes of concrete waste by reducing testing by approximately 14,000 cubes on its Hong Kong Science & Technology Parks Corporation’s Advanced Manufacturing Centre (AMC) project in Hong Kong. Insights from performance analytics facilitates optimisation of materials by selecting the right mix to suit programme requirements meaning less cement is used and the project has a smaller carbon footprint.

“ConcreteDNA Pro has really enabled us to take strides in evolving our processes for the future of construction. We’re not just building faster, but we’re building more reliably, safely, to a higher standard, and making huge gains on our sustainability targets.” Chief Executive  of Gammon, Thomas Ho

“The AMC project team no longer needs to collect data from each pour, saving considerable manpower and avoiding potential human error. The curing predictions and notifications that a pour has reached the required strength also mean the right people get to the right place at the right time. The contextual information to the curing predictions has allowed our team to coordinate better, allocate resources more efficiently, and mitigate project risks by planning ahead with better 4D oversight.” Director – Building at Gammon, Sammy Lai

“ConcreteDNA Pro represents a big step in fulfilling our vision to enable companies to build more efficiently, safely, and sustainably by fully digitising construction. We are thrilled that Gammon shares our vision, and our collaboration is already showing the world what the future of construction looks like.” CEO of Converge, Raphael Scheps
