On-Demand Volumetric Concrete Delivery
Concrete pouring presents a common challenge for site managers: how to achieve quickly and efficiently a range of different mixes for various applications. Mobile volumetric concrete mixers were created as the innovative solution to this problem. These agile machines travel between job sites, transporting dry materials that can be expertly mixed to order, right where they’re needed.
At Custom Concrete, we specialise in delivering tailor-made volumetric concrete solutions to meet a wide range of needs, whether you’re paving a driveway or establishing sturdy foundations. Since 2005, our fleet of volumetric trucks has been transporting all the essential raw materials to building sites and producing fresh concrete that matches your desired quantity, strength, and workability – all without ever compromising on quality.
In this blog post, we explore the numerous advantages of using mobile batching plants on-site, ensuring the timely delivery of fresh, custom-mixed concrete for your pour.
5 Benefits of Choosing Volumetric Concrete Delivery
Using a mobile volumetric concrete mixer provides our clients with the capability to create precise concrete mixes of outstanding quality right at their job site. But the benefits don’t stop there; here are five more compelling reasons to consider:
- Waste Minimisation. Efficiency and profitability are often compromised by excess waste. With volumetric concrete, there’s no need to worry about surplus concrete going to waste. We calculate the exact volume required for your project in advance, using the Custom Concrete Calculator, ensuring you only pay for the concrete you use.
- Enhanced Control Over Concrete Preparation. Adapting concrete mixes to match site conditions is crucial. Weather variations, like heavy rain or high temperatures, may necessitate adjustments in mix consistency. Additionally, last-minute changes in volume requirements can be made. Custom Concrete clients benefit from unparalleled quality control, allowing real-time alterations in volume and mix consistency right on-site as the concrete is being prepared.
- Improved Efficiency and Production Rates. Compared to ready-mixed concrete deliveries, where only one batch can be transported at a time, having a mobile batching plant on-site, operated by experienced professionals, allows for more efficient scheduling and planning. This translates to increased productivity throughout the day.
- Flexible Load Sizes. As volumetric concrete suppliers, we transport only the dry ingredients for concrete mixing. This means we accommodate jobs of all sizes, from laying the foundation for a garden shed to constructing new houses, all with the same commitment to top-quality service.
- Environmentally Friendly Product and Process. Sustainability is a growing concern in the construction industry, and the production and delivery of concrete play a significant role. Mobile volumetric concrete mixers reduce transportation requirements and eliminate waste, enhancing overall efficiency. At Custom Concrete, we also use CEM II cement, a sustainable alternative, further contributing to our eco-friendly approach.
Choosing volumetric concrete delivery isn’t just about convenience; it’s a smart, environmentally responsible choice for modern construction projects.
