Ready Mix Concrete vs Volumetric Concrete for Clients in Crawley

Are you running a private or commercial project in the Crawley area? If you are, our concrete suppliers realise that you might be struggling to make a decision between using ready mix concrete or volumetric concrete. Before booking a concrete lorry for delivery to your Crawley project, we recommend reading through the following information.

Because we supply both ready mix concrete and volumetric concrete, there’s no reason at all for you not to use our services. We just want to make sure the concrete lorry we dispatch to your job in Crawley is suitable for the task and for the project.

What is Ready Mix Concrete?

Ready mix concrete is the more traditional method of having material delivered to site. This type of concrete is made to a recipe at our South Godstone batching facility to specific grades then dispatched in a concrete lorry to your Crawley location. Mounted in-transit machinery is used to blend ready mix concrete on the road so that it’s ready to pour immediately on arrival. It is widely used on construction sites.

Some clients in Crawley prefer to use our concrete suppliers for ready mix concrete because of the precision of the recipe. It can also make onsite operations easier if a client already knows the exact grade and consistency of ready mix concrete they need.

What is Volumetric Concrete?

Volumetric concrete is the modern way to have material delivered to your Crawley site. The concrete lorry used for delivery of this product holds different aggregates and cement grades in separate holding compartments. Our concrete suppliers send all materials to site in ‘raw’ form and they are only mixed once the client is ready for us to begin pouring.

Instead of having to calculate loads and running the risk of over-ordering, volumetric concrete gives clients in Crawley the chance to have the freshest material mixed to exact quantities. This eliminates waste and the prospect of return fees. Grades can even be changed midway through a pour to suit the needs of each project.

The Verdict

It would be impossible for our concrete suppliers to make the best recommendation for your Crawley project without speaking to you first. However, we should be able to ascertain whether ready mix concrete or volumetric concrete is more suitable for the job once we’ve held a brief discussion and learned a little more about your needs.

Whatever the outcome, we’ll always have a concrete lorry available to dispatch your preferred choice of material to any location in and around the Crawley area. Both ready mix concrete and volumetric concrete are available at competitive prices that very few concrete suppliers in Surrey, Sussex, Kent or South London can match.
