What are the Benefits of Ready Mix Concrete?
Ready mix concrete is pre-mixed to suit client requirements and can offer many benefits to your construction project. We discuss the advantages and how the use of ready mix concrete can save you time and money.
As ready mix concrete is made to specification and adheres to strict regulations within a mixing plant, you can remain assured that the concrete you are supplied with is of approved and consistent quality. Computerised systems ensure that the correct mixing ratios are met far more accurately than you can mixing by hand.
Hand mixing concrete takes a lot of time and effort. This is time you could be spent doing other, more productive tasks. The delivery of ready mix concrete to your site cuts down labour hours, especially for larger commercial projects, and is often more economic than paying a workforce to mix concrete by hand. By using concrete pumps and a range of delivery vehicles, ready mix concrete can be delivered to lay sites efficiently and without the unnecessary time and effort.
More Environmentally Friendly
Due to more efficient mixing methods, cement and waste production are kept to a minimum. This is beneficial for the environment, as the production of ready mix concrete at a plant uses less resources and energy. It also reduces dust pollution, as bulk cement is used rather than bagged.
Finally, just because you aren’t mixing it yourself, doesn’t mean you lose the flexibility of choosing your concrete mix. Each order of ready mix concrete is different and specifically tailored to suit each client’s individual requirements. The use of ready mix concrete delivered to your site simply assures that your concrete mix is of only the best professional quality.
