Volumetric Concrete Suppliers for Shefford

Local Mix on Site Concrete Delivery

Custom Concrete is your premier choice for local volumetric concrete in Shefford, Bedfordshire. As specialist suppliers of  site mixed concrete, we take pride in our fleet of volumetric concrete trucks which operate as mobile batching plants on your site, in order to deliver fresh concrete for your pour.

Mix on site concrete delivery allows us to tailor the quantity, strength, and workability of the concrete to meet your specific requirements, ensuring consistently high standards. Whatever kind of project you’re working on, from small gardens to large construction sites, we have you covered.

Why Choose Freshly Mixed Concrete?

Freshly mixed concrete offers several advantages over ready-mixed concrete. Firstly, it provides greater flexibility in terms of customisation; you have the ability to adjust the quantity, strength, and workability of the concrete on-site to meet your specific project requirements. This ensures that the concrete is precisely tailored to your needs, resulting in optimal performance and durability.

Secondly, freshly mixed concrete eliminates the need for long-distance transport. Ready-mixed concrete has to be transported from a central batching plant, which can result in delays, increased costs, and potential quality degradation. With freshly mixed concrete, the ingredients are brought directly to the site in specialised volumetric trucks, reducing transportation time and maintaining the freshness and quality of the concrete.

How is Volumetric Concrete Mixed on Site?

Volumetric concrete is mixed using volumetric concrete trucks. These trucks are equipped with separate compartments that store the various ingredients required to make concrete, such as cement, aggregates (such as sand and gravel), and water.

When the truck arrives at the construction site, the operator uses the truck’s computerised controls to precisely measure and dispense the correct proportions of each ingredient. The materials are typically discharged into a mixing auger or conveyor belt within the truck.

As the auger or conveyor belt rotates, the ingredients are thoroughly mixed together, ensuring uniform distribution. The speed and duration of the mixing process can be adjusted on-site to achieve the desired consistency and workability of the concrete. This flexibility allows for customisation based on specific project requirements.

Once the concrete is thoroughly mixed, it is ready for immediate use. If you need multiple batches in one visit, we simply programme them in, and they can be mixed as you require them.

Why Choose Local Volumetric Concrete Suppliers for Shefford?

When you choose local volumetric concrete suppliers, you enjoy a whole range of benefits designed to improve efficiency on site, enhance the cost-effectiveness of your order, and provide excellent quality concrete:

  • Prompt and Reliable Local Delivery. With a local supplier, you can benefit from faster response times and shorter delivery distances. This proximity ensures that you receive prompt service, reducing the risk of delays that can disrupt your schedule and result in costly setbacks.
  • Eradicate Waste. Volumetric concrete offers the combined benefits of on-site freshness and cost-effectiveness. Volumetric concrete is calculated by volume rather than weight, using the Custom Concrete Calculator. This ensures that you only pay for the exact amount of concrete you use, eliminating any wastage and the associated disposal costs.
  • Check Out Our Reputation. When selecting a concrete supplier, reputation matters. Local suppliers often serve multiple businesses in the area, making it easier to gauge their quality, punctuality, and expertise. By tapping into the local network, you can gather valuable insights about the supplier’s track record, ensuring you choose one known for delivering high-quality concrete, prompt service, and knowledgeable staff.
  • Knowledgeable Customer Service. The Custom Concrete customer service team is made up of professionals who know the business. They will help with enquiries, offer advice on the mix that would be best for your job, and provide technical information if requested.
  • Our Site-Mixed Concrete is Sustainable. We take our responsibility to the planet seriously. For this reason, we have replaced CEM-I Ordinary Portland Cement with CEM-II Eco Cement. This has been proven to reduce the carbon footprint of our concrete we produce; it also allows us to keep price rises to a minimum.

Concrete Pump Hire

Custom Concrete volumetric trucks are 10 metres in length, 2.5 metres in width, and 4 metres in height. While these trucks provide excellent reach, not all sites in Shefford offer straightforward access for a direct pour into slabs or footings. In such cases, we offer the convenience of concrete pump hire services. Our concrete pumps ensure a rapid and efficient delivery of your concrete to its intended destination.
