Climate Leadership Award Winners Leverage SmartRock Concrete Sensors

Climate Leadership Award Winner uses SmartRock TechnologyOn the day of the Climate Leadership Exchange event hosted by the Climate Leadership Conference, Giatec, the leader in concrete testing technology and concrete software applications, is proud to highlight award winners of the Climate Leadership Award recognizing the San Diego International Airport project’s sustainability.

In the construction of a 3-million-gallon underground storm water containment reservoir for the San Diego International Airport, Sundt Construction Inc. utilized Giatec’s wireless concrete sensor, SmartRock. Construction professionals around the world are choosing SmartRock to ensure their projects meet sustainability targets. They do this through the sensor’s ability to reduce concrete waste. These sensors help predict concrete performance. They also monitor concrete properties in real-time.

“Giatec has one of the best products out there!” says Dinesh Allam, Project Manager, Sundt Construction Inc. With consistent temperature monitoring in real-time Allam’s team saved 40% in cooling materials on the airport project.

Through Giatec’s SmartRock concrete sensors and artificial intelligence (AI) based technology, the company plans to help the industry cut at least 400 million tons annually of GHG emissions. Pouria Ghods, Giatec Co-Founder and CEO says, “Our mandate and our vision are that within three to five years we will significantly reduce the carbon footprint of concrete.”

About SmartRock

SmartRock is the most widely used wireless concrete sensor. It is currently being implemented in over 8,000 construction projects across 80 countries worldwide. It is the first truly wireless sensor introduced to the market in 2015. SmartRock is also the leading concrete maturity sensor for accurate monitoring of concrete curing and hardening. Unlike time-consuming and error-prone break tests, or cumbersome wired sensors, Giatec’s patented maturity sensor uses a highly accurate ASTM-approved testing method. Together with the Giatec 360 platform, and SmartHub remote monitoring system this has enabled faster, safer, and more economical concrete construction.

The Climate Leadership Awards take place during The Climate Leadership Conference. They recognize and incentivize exemplary corporations, organizations, and individuals leading the way in managing and reducing greenhouse gas emissions in their operations and supply chains. They also recognize companies that are integrating climate resilience initiatives. The San Diego International Airport project is behind the Individual Leadership Award. It is also behind the Excellence in Greenhouse Gas Management Award.

The Climate Leadership Conference brings together influential climate, energy, and sustainability professionals. Here they exchange both new ideas and best practices for addressing climate change through policy, innovation, and business solutions.
