OTTAWA, Canada: Giatec, the market leader of revolutionary concrete testing technologies, is excited to be shortlisted by New Civil Engineer’s TechFest Awards in the category of “Best Use of Technology: Driving Efficiency in Design and Delivery” category.

Founded in 2010, Giatec uses Internet of Things (IoT) and smart technologies to revolutionize the construction industry; combining wireless concrete sensors, mobile apps and advanced non-destructive technologies (NDT).

Our flagship product, SmartRock®, which was introduced to the market in 2015, is the leading wireless concrete sensor for monitoring the temperature and strength of any concrete pour. Unlike time-consuming and error-prone cylinder break tests, or cumbersome wired sensors, SmartRock® is simple to install and gives construction teams the most accurate information to make critical decisions in real-time. Used in over 4,200 projects worldwide, across 80 countries, this sensor is trusted by project managers and superintendents to help accelerate project timelines and optimize construction schedules.

About TechFest
New Civil Engineer’s TechFest is an immersive gathering of the brightest minds in civil engineering. Responding to the industry’s need to support and encourage innovation, the Festival addresses the industry’s biggest technology challenges and stimulates opportunities for innovation.

The category of Best Use of Technology: Driving Efficiency in Design and Delivery recognizes teams using technology on-site or behind the scenes to boost the efficiency and productivity of the global civil engineering industry through better design and delivery. This may be through automation and industrialization of processes or other methods that bring the construction industry closer to other, more productive industries such as manufacturing.

Giatec’s UK partners, Saynor Sales, will be presenting SmartRock® to the Festival’s panel of judges on Thursday, September 26th where the winner will be announced at the gala dinner.
