Understanding Mixed Onsite Concrete Delivery
Concrete lies at the core of construction, and the method of on-site mixing and delivery plays a pivotal role in determining its quality and durability. Onsite mixed concrete is an increasingly popular option for site managers, and in this article, we consider why onsite mixed concrete offers maximum flexibility, quality, and efficiency for construction projects.
Concrete serves a multitude of purposes in construction, from forming solid foundations to building walls and everything in between. Each project demands a unique concrete mix, tailored to its specifications. Furthermore, the quantity of concrete required can vary significantly. That’s where onsite mixed concrete comes into its own.
What is Onsite Mixed Concrete?
Imagine a volumetric concrete truck rolling onto your job site, stocked with all the essential raw materials – sand, stone, water, cement, and any necessary additives. These ingredients are mixed onsite to meet your precise specifications, ensuring you have fresh concrete at your disposal, precisely where you require it for immediate pouring. This service also allows you to order multiple batches of concrete with each delivery.
This mobile batching plant on wheels is a game-changer. Here’s why:
- Precision and Accuracy: Onsite mixed concrete allows for precision like no other. The ingredients are blended right on the spot, ensuring that the concrete mix matches your project’s exact requirements. Say goodbye to guesswork and inconsistency.
- Versatility: Construction sites often demand a variety of concrete mixes for different tasks – from sturdy foundations to fine-tuned finishes. Onsite mixing effortlessly accommodates this diversity, with the ability to produce multiple batches on-demand.
- Zero Wastage: Waste is the enemy of efficiency. With onsite mixed concrete, there’s no need to fret about excess concrete going to waste. Only the precise amount needed for the job is mixed, drastically reducing material wastage.
- Timely Deliveries: Waiting around for a batch of ready-mixed concrete to arrive? Not with onsite mixing. Your project won’t experience delays because the entire process happens right there on your site. This translates to improved project timelines and greater productivity.
- Cost-Efficiency: Onsite mixed concrete doesn’t just save you time; it also saves you money. By eliminating the costs associated with transporting pre-mixed concrete and minimising waste, your project’s budget can stretch further.

At Custom Concrete, we take the hassle out of ordering mixed onsite concrete, whether you’re tackling a small DIY project, involved in residential renovation, or working on a large-scale construction project. The beauty of our service lies in its adaptability – the size of your job makes no difference to us, and here’s why we stand out:

- No Extra Charges. We understand that small projects are just as important as the big ones. That’s why we don’t burden you with additional delivery fees for small loads. Our commitment to fairness ensures that you get exactly what you pay for, without any surprises.
- Zero Waste Guarantee. Our secret weapon is volumetric concrete ordering. We measure by volume, not weight, allowing us to promise zero waste. Your project gets exactly the amount of concrete it needs, eliminating excess material that could otherwise go to waste.
- Last Minute Tweaks. Conditions can change unexpected on a building site. You may need to change the mix due to weather conditions, or tweak the volume given changes in project dimensions. We’re able to make those changes because we’re mixing onsite, ensuring that your project is served efficiently.
- The Custom Concrete Calculator. Precision is at the heart of what we do. To simplify the ordering process, we offer the Custom Concrete Calculator. Input the dimensions of your project and specify the task (e.g., footings, slabs, etc.), and watch as it calculates the exact volume required. This tool not only saves you time but also promotes sustainability by reducing unnecessary concrete production.
- Sustainability Matters. We take pride in promoting sustainable practices. By ordering the right amount of concrete and minimising waste, you’re not only saving money but also contributing to a greener, more eco-friendly construction industry.
