Evolution of a concrete “digital twin” combining sensors that detect curing rates with building information modelling has allowed one Hong Kong contractor to strike its pours 38% faster.
Covid-19 is regarded as the cause of an accelerated uptake of technology worldwide. And that is certainly the case in Hong Kong where in the last six months the construction industry has adopted a purely technical solution for determining concrete integrity by using sensors instead of crushing cubes.
The next step, described as a world first by Gammon Construction and construction technology pioneer Converge, has been to integrate sensors and building information modelling (BIM) via the new Converge ConcreteDNA Pro system. The technology creates a digital twin of concreting on site, offering real time visibility of pours, curing rates and productivity.

In this article we answer the question “Can you trust the maturity method?”. We discuss the limitations and benefits of the method.
We discuss the benefits and challenges of the concrete cube test. We also give tips on how to handle the challenges.
