Drawing on multiple data sources it provides:

  • real time weather guidance on the potential for plastic shrinkage cracking
  • weather information allowing construction decisions to be made up to a week in advance
  • background information on critical factors affecting concrete cracking including temperature, wind speed and relative humidity
  • knowledge on how to prevent costly mistakes and remedial work
  • easy access to valuable and relevant CCAA information on best practice guidelines for concrete placement
  • knowledge about concrete, how it behaves and industry best practice
