UK-based construction technology company Converge has unveiled a new tool named Mix AI to promote low-carbon construction practices.
The tool uses predictive AI to aid construction contractors in minimising concrete overdesign and reducing their embodied carbon emissions.
Mix AI joins ConcreteDNA, a concrete monitoring and data management system also developed by Converge.
This new tool evaluates concrete data to provide AI-based predictions on concrete strength, temperature, and carbon footprint, by considering both past and future environmental conditions.
The Mix AI technology allows contractors to select concrete mixes that use less cement, thereby meeting required performance standards while reducing carbon emissions.
It helps to save money and time by speeding up project timelines with smart planning tools.

The company claimed that its collaboration with Stanley Black & Decker in North America enhances the impact that the new tool drives.
Stanley Black & Decker is an industrial solutions provider that offers infrastructure systems.
Stanley Black & Decker Construction Technology director Brad Roberts said: “Mix AI will empower our customers to choose carbon-efficient mixes and deliver concrete programmes on schedule with excellence.
“It’s a win for our customers, a win for us, and a win for the environment.”
In 2022, Converge secured £15m via a Series A funding round, led by Climate Investment, to speed up its carbon impact.
Climate Investment director and Converge board member Mike Bishop said: “Mix AI is a transformative product for concrete.
“It balances construction demands with sustainability efforts, offering an innovative solution to address embodied carbon, while simultaneously reducing costs and accelerating project timelines.”
Converge has strategic partnerships in Europe, Asia, and North America, and aims to accelerate the process of decarbonising the construction industry by leveraging AI.
