Wright MiniMix celebrate a win at their annual golf day
13th October 2017

The Wright MiniMix team has returned from our annual golf day triumphant, with a win against Bristol & Bath Concrete.

Following the success of last year’s golf day, over fifty of our clients, contacts and friends joined us at the superb course at The Kendleshire golf course and country club in Bristol, one of the county’s premier golfing locations.

This exciting event took place to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Wright MiniMix – one of the leading providers of ready mix concrete, liquid screed and concrete pumping in the south west of England and Wales. In fact, some of Wright MiniMix’s concrete pumps (including the UK’s largest concrete pump) also made an appearance, much to the delight of those in attendance.

In true competitive spirit, the team - led by MD Len, took to the course to play 18 holes of golf. Whilst Bristol & Bath made an excellent effort, the Wright MiniMix team were the stronger team on the day and took home the coveted trophy.

Len said, “We are delighted to have reached such a significant milestone with Wright MiniMix and what better way than to spend it on the golf course, playing in an exciting tournament against our friends at Bristol & Bath Concrete”

Why concrete is the best material for stunning architecture
02nd October 2017

From monumental museums to striking structures, our durable concrete friend always delivers a solid performance when it comes to architecture.

We all know the practical benefits of using concrete when building, but you may be surprised to realise that sometimes the most striking and unusual buildings are made of concrete.

Could you name the world’s first renowned concrete structure? If you guessed the iconic dome of the Pantheon in Rome which was completed in AD128, you are right! Despite its age, the Pantheon is still breath-taking in every which way. Roman concrete was based on a hydraulic-setting cement and was known for its durability (which was helped further by the incorporation of volcanic ash)

If iconic is the name of the game, then the Sydney Opera House surely must be awarded the same honour? The Opera House which was built in 1973 is certainly one of the most notable examples of modern expressionist architecture. 
Architects are continuing to use concrete to create works of art that are talked about all over the world. For example, if we look at the National Museum of Brazil, you will see Oscar Niemeyer’s architectural creation that resembles a planet embedded in the ground, with the other half of the sphere created by a reflection in an adjacent pool.

Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava’s auditorium in the Canary Islands creates an arresting figure against the Atlantic Ocean. Inside, a performance space is enclosed by abstract curving forms.

Other notable concrete buildings include:

Fallingwater in Fayette County, Pennsylvania. This house has been escalated into a national historic landmark thanks to its use of an adventurous cantilever design using reinforced concrete.

The Lotus Temple in Delhi whose design was inspired by the lotus flower which features a concrete dome covered by 27 petals made of white marble. 

With the worldwide readymix concrete market being valued at £127bn per year, concrete is worth more than all other buildings materials put together.

With concrete having an increasingly popular presence in internal and external architecture, there has never been a better time to take advantage of this incredible material. Concrete is a contemporary, minimalist and trendy way to construct buildings and more and more architects are looking to take advantage of this. Whilst the benefits of concrete are clear, these amazing buildings demonstrate that concrete structures can be beautiful as well as utilitarian.

What is the difference between liquid screed and concrete?
18th September 2017

Whilst both concrete and liquid screed do contain some of the same properties, there are tangible differences between them and how they are used.

Concrete is used for a wide range of projects such as the construction of buildings, laying house foundations, path and driveways, flooring (both commercial, residential and industrial) and more. Concrete is a relatively cheap material and is incredibly durable with few maintenance requirements. 

Screed is used as a final layer for flooring, it is laid to prepare the installation of a floor covering such as carpet, timber or tiling. There are typically five distinct types of screed flooring but at Wright MiniMix, we have developed our own version of liquid screed – our Wrightflow Screed. Liquid screed is fast becoming an industry standard in floor screeding. Some people refer to liquid screed as ‘self-levelling screed’ too.

Thanks to our extensive knowledge and experience within the concreting and liquid screed industry, we developed our liquid screed after an in-depth development and vigorous testing process. Our aim was to ensure that it met the specific needs of our customers and to produce a high-quality product.

Our liquid screed is self-compacting and removes the need to have the floor sealed prior to laying. The liquid screed is installed over underfloor heating pipes and insulation and the screed actively conducts the heat evenly across the entire floor surface. One of the main benefits of liquid screed is that it helps retain the heat for longer. Our Wrightflow liquid screed covers the pipework completely and eliminates any potential gaps of air that could prevent the heat from rising. 

It is important to ensure that you allow a sufficient drying time when laying liquid screed, otherwise cracking may occur.

Similarly to concrete, our liquid screed contains blended cement, water, sand, limestone, dust as well as more unique materials such as anti-crack fibres, super plasticiser and an anti-shrink agent.

The installation of liquid screed can be less labour intensive over other screed flooring solutions and by using our own liquid screed can increase the thermal efficiency of your building which will be more efficient both in terms of money and energy consumption too.

Liquid screed doesn’t require the same depth as other mixes of floor screed and this means that you have a significant reduction in both weight and drying time too!

Aesthetically, you can usually tell the difference between concrete and liquid screed by how it looks. Concrete has a rougher texture and liquid screed has more of a smoother finish. Liquid screed is traditionally only used as a finishing layer on internal floors whereas concrete can be used for both internal and external flooring.
