Toronto, Canada: Giatec, world leader in concrete testing technology, is pleased to announce that they have received the “Innovation Award” at the Toronto Construction Association’s (TCA) annual “Best of the Best Awards” for their flagship product, SmartRock®.

The “Innovation Award” is given annually to a company whose “extraordinary achievement during the year is genuinely precedent-setting in terms of innovation. What sets the winner apart is their willingness to think outside the box and devise new and improved ways to tackle seemingly insurmountable challenges”.

As the first truly wireless sensor introduced to the market in 2015, SmartRock is the leading concrete maturity sensor for accurate monitoring of concrete curing and hardening on the jobsite. Unlike time-consuming and error-prone cylinder break tests, or cumbersome wired probes, Giatec’s patented maturity sensor uses a highly accurate ASTM and CSA approved testing method combined with machine learning algorithms that offers a complete end-to-end industrial IoT solution. As a result, SmartRock has been used in over 6,000 construction projects across 45 countries.

“We are honored to have received this award from the Toronto Construction Association. As the world leader in IoT solutions for the concrete industry, our growth is driven by our team’s dedication to offering solutions for building concrete structures faster, safer, and more economically,” says Pouria Ghods, CEO.

Celebrated during the association’s Annual General Meeting on February 20 at Woodbine Racetrack in Etobicoke, ON., the “Best of the Best Awards” honors people, companies, and projects that demonstrate excellence in performance in the construction industry.
