Freshness On-Demand – The Benefits of Mixed On-Site Concrete

Building projects demand high-quality concrete, but that is only half the equation. Freshness matters, too. Which is why we provide mixed on-site concrete, delivering the precise volume you require and bespoke mixes directly to your site, ready to pour when you are. Custom Concrete’s volumetric trucks guarantee consistency and optimal freshness with every delivery. Whether you’re a seasoned construction professional or a hands-on DIYer, we cater to projects of all sizes.

Custom Concrete is a long-established supplier of mixed on-site concrete to customers across Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire, and Hertfordshire. No matter the size of the job, from residential projects to construction sites and refurbishers, we deliver promptly and efficiently thanks to an experienced specialist team. In this article we take a look at the range of benefits available when ordering site-mixed, rather than ready-mixed concrete

What is Mixed On-Site Concrete?

Mixed on-site concrete arrives as raw materials in a volumetric mixing truck and, once in position, it becomes a mobile batching plant producing freshly mixed concrete, on site, for immediate pouring. The mixing truck stores sand, cement, water, stone, and additives separately. Once the volumetric mixer is programmed, the ratio of ingredients required for the mix is dispensed to achieve the right consistency for the job.

5 Benefits of Working With Site Mixed Concrete

At every stage of the ordering, mixing, and pouring process, site mixed concrete offers benefits that can impact positively on the quality and cost-efficiency of your build.

1. On-Site Control and Flexibility

Volumetric mixers offer unparalleled control over your concrete mix. No waiting for potentially delayed deliveries or worrying about weather conditions. You can tweak the volume or mix composition on-site to adapt to changing conditions with ease. This agility ensures your concrete perfectly suits your project’s specific demands.

2. Reliable Scheduled Deliveries

Reliable Scheduled Deliveries

Once your order and delivery schedule are confirmed, Custom Concrete delivers on-time with the raw ingredients for your pour. There are no concerns about delays impacting concrete quality, as with pre-mixed options. Mixed on-site concrete delivers the precise mix you need, exactly where and when you need it, guaranteeing a smooth and timely pouring process.

3. Sustainable Concrete Mixing

Custom Concrete prioritises sustainability by using CEM-II eco-cement, which minimises the environmental impact in comparison to traditional cement. Additionally, our mobile batching plant reduces delivery distances, and our pre-ordering system, using the Custom Concrete Calculator, minimises waste. We also employ water-efficient washing procedures for our volumetric trucks, further reducing our environmental footprint.

4. Serving All Project Sizes

From large construction sites to residential DIY projects, Custom Concrete delivers mix on-site concrete for any size of job. We don’t impose surcharges for smaller deliveries, as our raw ingredients require minimal transportation. Our trucks’ dimensions are 10m x 2.5m x 4m. For residential deliveries, we conduct access checks beforehand and can include concrete pump hire if necessary.

5. Precise Order Accuracy

Custom Concrete clients value the ability to order the exact amount of concrete needed for their project. This eliminates waste, optimises cost-effectiveness, and ensures no leftover concrete disposal after the pour. Our knowledgeable customer service team is always available to assist with any volume calculations or order inquiries.
