Case study: 80m3 ready mix concrete and concrete pump – Ferndale
02nd November 2018

The brief

Rhondda Fach Leisure Centre in Ferndale approached our team for 80m3 of ready mix concrete to fill in an old swimming pool no longer in use so that they could repurpose the space.

The solution

In order to meet our client’s requirements, we dedicated our concrete plant in Newport for the morning so that we could ensure that the project was completed efficiently and to a high standard. Due to limited access to the site, it was also agreed that one of our concrete mini pumps would be the best method for delivering the 80m3 of ready mix concrete successfully and in the shortest possible time. As a result of our quick and dedicated concrete delivery service, the leisure centre now has a brand new space to make use of however it sees fit.


Do you require commercial concrete or a concrete pump for your project? You can rely on us for an efficient concrete delivery service! Get in touch today on 0117 958 2090.

Prodeck-Fixing acquired by LGW Group
17th October 2018

Somerset-based Prodeck-Fixing, one of the market leaders in the supply and installation of steel and metal decking across the UK and Europe, has been acquired by the LGW Group.

With headquarters in Bristol, the LGW Group includes Wright Minimix, Bristol & Bath Concrete, Chris Brown Concrete Pumps and Nationwide Concreting, and provides a true one-stop shop for the construction industry across Southern England and Wales.

“The acquisition of Prodeck means we are the only company in our region who can manufacture the concrete, deliver it, pump it on to decking we lay and finish it to the highest tolerance with our own concrete laying division” said Len Wright, Managing Director of the Group.

Having grown year on year since 1992, Prodeck provide consultations, design, supply and installations of all major steel floor decking, composite metal flooring (CMF) & non-composite metal flooring (NCMF) applications. They have worked closely with one of the top European steel manufacturers, Tata Steel / Corus Group.

With steel and metal decking capability now available from the LGW Group, construction companies can benefit from a time saving, quality service at competitive rates, which will reduce risk and offer improvements on their construction programmes.

The acquisition of Prodeck comes just five months after the purchase of Newquay-based Chris Brown Concrete Pumps by the LGW Group in May.

With a fleet of fifty-three vehicles, including one of the biggest concrete pumps in the UK, the LGW Group of companies can now offer far greater flexibility with a wide range of concrete pumping equipment including static machines, mobile line pumps and the largest full fleet of boom pumps throughout the whole of the South of England and Wales, as well as decking and finishing capabilities. With a strong board of directors, each market leaders in their own field, turnover for the LGW Group is expected to reach in excess of £41 million in 2019.

How to treat concrete burns caused by ready mix concrete
25th September 2018

Many people are unsure what to do when ready mix concrete causes an alkali burn. It’s vital that you know how to prevent it and what action you should take if you come into contact with ready mix concrete

When ordering a concrete pump, a proper risk assessment should be made by the site management regarding the operation of the pump and the protection of the personnel involved in laying the ready mix concrete.

What causes a concrete burn

Dry concrete on its own is relatively harmless, wet concrete however, can pose a threat to your skin. When concrete reacts chemically with water, calcium oxide becomes calcium hydroxide, a highly alkaline substance with a pH of 12-13. This is very different to the skin’s natural, slightly acidic pH balance of around 5.5. It is the alkalinity of ready mix concrete which causes concrete burns.

Initially, you may not feel any effects of the concrete burn, as the reaction happens slowly. However, if not dealt with quickly, the chemicals can cause skin irritation, pain, blistering and burns.

How to prevent concrete burns

Training your staff on how to deal with and avoid concrete burns caused by ready mix concrete is the best preventative. As well as the siting of the concrete pump, measures should be taken by the site management to ensure that safety regulations are maintained throughout the concrete installation process.

It's also important to provide all the necessary equipment, including pH neutral soap, clean running water, towels and topical sprays. These items should always be available for easy access on-site.

How to treat a concrete burn

It is always recommended that you seek medical attention if you receive a concrete burn from handling ready mix concrete, but in the meantime, prompt action should be taken to help minimise the severity of the concrete burn. If left untreated, skin can start to dry and crack, burns will blister and eventually turn into scarring.

Any ready mix concrete that comes into contact with the skin should be washed off instantly. Clothing which has become wet through to the skin as a result of contact with the ready mix concrete should also be removed immediately and the skin beneath washed thoroughly. New, dry clothing will then be required before recommencing work.


For more information about concrete burns caused by ready mix concrete or to view our Health and Safety guidance in regards to the use of a concrete pump, contact our team on 0117 958 2090.

It provides no shrinking, cracking or curling and the material can be laid into low depths, which means our team uses fewer materials for projects therefore costing less money for our clients. 

Benefits of liquid screed: 

  • Eliminates the need to seal the floor prior to laying the latex

  • Reduced risk of cracking, curling and shrinkage
  • Self-levelling for a smooth even finish
