With the spread of networking and computing technologies, ubiquitous computing is a concept attracting increasing attention in industrial development and innovation. In this study, a mass concrete curing management system (CMS) is introduced to investigate the possibility of applying ubiquitous computing to jobsite project execution. The proposed CMS consists of three parts - wireless data acquisition, strength estimation, and an alarm. A case study is performed to validate the CMS in the mat foundation of a high-rise building construction. This system will allowthe project engineers or managers to make timely decisions about the cooling operation of the pipe cooling system, which removes hydration heat from the concrete with embedded cooling pipes in the structure, and about the timing of formwork stripping. This suggest that the productivity and efficiency of construction management can be improved by adopting a ubiquitous computing environment in construction.
