Canadian tech-company Thinkwire Inc. wins Austrian Josef Umdasch Research Prize for its AI-Powered Knowledge Management System
Doka, a world leader in formwork technology, awarded this year's Josef Umdasch Research Prize to Thinkwire Inc., a Canadian software engineering company. The award was presented for Thinkwire's new artificial intelligence powered knowledge management system, called Cupp. Doka is now working with Thinkwire Inc. to launch and implement Cupp within its company.
Digital innovations are increasingly shaping our everyday lives – including in the construction machinery industry. Thanks to virtual and augmented reality (VR/AR), users can now experience construction sites virtually and be part of the story in the middle of the action. It is not just an experience with deceptively real sensations and high entertainment value. VR and AR can be used to present products in the development phase, prototypes, or future scenarios and explain them in a completely new way. This opens up a whole host of new opportunities for companies.
The Markham/Pickering area of southern Ontario, east of Toronto, has been growing steadily, and is expected to continue that growth in coming years. Greater population and the development needed to serve those increasing numbers will strain the current sanitary sewer resources.
The Keeyask Generating Station, which is under construction in northern Manitoba, will provide 695 megawatts of capacity and produce an average of 4,400 gigawatt hours of electricity each year for use in Manitoba and for export. The project is located 725 kilometres north of Winnipeg on the Nelson River. Getting material and support to the site is difficult over the rough terrain, and due to the size of the project, the amount of equipment required at any one time is also a challenge.
Doka has launched a new innovative product lineup of internet-connected sensors. Concremote is integrated in Doka formwork and measures real-time compressive strength gain of fresh concrete. Reliable performance data is vital to support decisions for subsequent construction works. Reference cases underpin optimization of construction schedules and costs while simultaneously enhancing concrete durability.
With Doka Framax Xlife stripping corner all retracting or expanding formwork can be done by one worker
Doka’s Framax Xlife stripping corner has successfully been used in forming cores/shafts on thousands of projects around the globe. With a simple built-in ratchet design, all the work of retracting or expanding formwork can be done by one worker at the top of the core. The built-in ratchet makes the operation safe and fast. In accordance with accident prevention guidelines, no crane is required for expanding to set or contracting to strip the core forms. The formwork unit can then be repositioned in a single lift to save crane time
Doka North America will be exhibiting demonstrating the latest in concrete formwork technology at CONEXPO. Doka will showcase wall, slab and climbing solutions and services ranging from engineering, field support, pre-assembly and project management. Additionally, Doka will display advances in technology, such as the Concremote sensors that enable contractors to strip formwork earlier than ever before. Concremote and Doka will also be featured in the new Technology Experience pavilion.
Toronto’s Ten York project is a residential highrise building that will soar 65 storeys and contain 694 units when complete. Located at the busy intersection of York and Harbour, near the waterfront and overlooking the Gardiner Expressway, there are a number of challenges to be faced for concrete work. In this case, the use of traditional truss tables was not permitted because of the nearness to the Gardiner. Crews had limited space on the ground for staging and storing of material, shear wall construction restricted movement of shoring material through the building, and a ten-foot deep transfer slab is suspended 40 feet above the floor below.
