Looking for Local Volumetric Concrete Suppliers?
As an independent volumetric concrete supplier, Custom Concrete takes great pride in delivering freshly mixed concrete promptly and efficiently, no matter the size of the job. We’re local mix on-site concrete suppliers for Little Paxton, with a reputation for friendly customer service, provided by an experienced and knowledgeable team.
What Are The Benefits of Mix On-Site Concrete?
Mix on-site concrete is also known as volumetric concrete. It travels to the site as raw materials. When it is in position for the pour, the volumetric truck becomes a mobile batching plant, producing fresh concrete to order. If multiple mixes are needed on the same day, they can be programmed to deliver as you need them.
Customers in Little Paxton choose site-mixed concrete because of the range of benefits it offers:
With mix on-site concrete, the concrete is prepared on the spot, just before it is needed. This guarantees that the concrete is fresh, as it has not been sitting in a transit mixer for an extended period. The fresher the concrete, the better its workability, strength, and overall quality.
Volumetric concrete allows for precise customisation of the mix according to the specific requirements of the project when ordering. The ratio of cement, aggregates, water, and additives can be adjusted on-site if weather or site conditions require it.
Since the exact volume required for your job can be calculated, using the Custom Concrete calculator, waste is minimal. This reduces the cost and minimises the environmental impact by avoiding unnecessary disposal of unused concrete.
Mix on-site concrete eliminates the need for transporting pre-mixed concrete from a batching plant to the construction site. This saves time and improves efficiency for construction teams, as there are no delays caused by traffic or long-distance transportation.
Site mixed concrete reduces the carbon footprint associated with concrete mixing and delivery in two ways. First, Custom Concrete uses CEM II eco cement which produces less CO² than CEM I. Second, we work locally, and the use of volumetric trucks minimises the number of miles we need to cover as part of our delivery schedule.
By eliminating waste through precision ordering, and optimising site logistics, mix on-site concrete is a cost-effective solution for Little Paxton customers. The on-site operation creates material efficiencies, maintains stable labour costs, and reduces transportation expenses associated with ready-mixed concrete.
Volumetric concrete allows for greater versatility in terms of the quantity of concrete required. Whether it’s a small project or a large-scale construction, we can deliver the precise amount needed. Our transportation of raw materials means that there’s no surcharge for small loads.
How to Order Volumetric Concrete
As established mix on-site concrete suppliers for Little Paxton, we believe in giving great value for money, and that starts with the ordering process. Using the Custom Concrete Calculator customers can calculate the exact volume of concrete required for their job. They simply select the job for which the concrete is needed, enter their measurements, and, within seconds, receive an accurate calculation of the volume required.
Any question about the mix, or the different batches required, will be answered by our trained and experienced customer service team who are on-hand to help.
Custom Concrete Pump Hire
Our volumetric trucks measure 10 metres in length, 2.5 metres in width, and 4 metres in height, providing excellent reach for concrete delivery. However, not all sites in Little Paxton may have the required accessibility for pouring concrete into slabs or footings. In such cases, we offer concrete pump hire services to guarantee the smooth and efficient delivery of your concrete to the intended location.
There are two types of concrete pump for hire: the concrete boom pump, and the concrete line pump. Whatever access challenges your site presents, one of these pumps will offer the solution you need.
- Concrete Boom Pump. If your concrete requires drop delivery from above, the boom pump is a perfect solution. A hydraulic arm facilitates the lifting and placing of pipes where access is difficult. Boom pumps are used on sites where access is extremely restricted, or in the construction of high-rise buildings.
- Concrete Line Pump. The line pump is made up of a number of connected pipes, used to navigate obstacles and speed up concrete delivery. Once volumetric concrete is mixed it is channelled into the hopper and then pumped through the pipes to its destination. The line pump guarantees fast, clean delivery of your concrete.
