Why volumetric concrete?

Volumetric concrete is typically mixed on site in a volumetric concrete mixer, sometimes known as a mobile batching plant. Our high-tech vehicles arrive on site with all the necessary ingredients to mix the type and grade of concrete required for the job at hand, and we can even change the mix while on the same job if two different grades are required. Mix on site concrete is also extremely flexible, suited to both small jobs and large-scale projects due to the high capacity of our mobile batching plant.

Because the mixing process is carried out on site there's no risk of over or under ordering. We will provide the quantity required and you simply pay for what you lay. This can prove to be extremely economical and the lack of waste product is also better for the environment.
