Better concrete through digital monitoring
The manufacture of concrete is a multistage process where mistakes can be costly. Formed by a number of construction sector operators, the Digitalisation of Concrete consortium is developing a digital solution that enables quality control for concrete from the factory to the construction site. Congrid Oy’s experimental project is part of the preparation and proof of concept (PoC) stage for the consortium’s operations.Read more
