Serneke uses Maturix at Karla Tower


Concrete monitoring at tallest building in Scandinavia

The Karla Tower is currently being built in Gothenburg, Sweden. It is going to be the tallest skyscraper in Scandinavia and the high-rise building is to be finished in two years. The 245 m high building offers space for 594 apartments and hotels. The construction is based on 58 piles with 2m diameter, anchored about 60 meters down through mud and rocks. The tallest building in Scandinavia is definitely a challenge in itself.

The Maturix In-situ solution provides Serneke with an end-to-end tool for concrete strength monitoring.
By using thermocouples that are cast directly in the structure and connected to a transmitter, the temperature inside the concrete is measured continuously. The data is sent wirelessly to the cloud platform. The software automatically calculates maturity and strength based on the history data and the concrete mix and the strength development process can be followed. The data is accessible from any device via the web portal or app and provides Serneke with real-time insights into the actual curing status inside the structure in several positions for each cast.

Thus, Magnus Eckert, project manager of Serneke, always knows exactly how the concrete is curing and if he has to adjust his project management on-site according to data. With the smart solution, he has access to the data from anywhere using Maturix.
