The Number One Ready Mix Concrete Bournemouth Service

Other companies will send you batches of ordered concrete that was mixed at a plant, but this method carries a risk. By opting for this, you may end up being short in concrete volume, or you might over order and therefore part with more money. Here at Direct Mini Mix Limited, we mix the concrete on site, ensuring that customers get the right amount for their project. 

As mentioned, you will only have to pay for what you use! Before the concrete is laid on your surface, there are steps that need to be taken to ensure a smooth finish. Below we have outlined this process. 

 

Preparation

Preparing the ground is key before laying concrete, so you firstly need to dig to hard ground or create a hard core base and flatten it down. In order to calculate the correct depth for concrete, the base needs to be as flat as possible. When digging the footings, they should be equal in width, and if there is any water from rain, it should be pumped out. Secure strong boards into the ground to shutter the bases; this will stop the weight of the concrete from pushing the boards outwards. 

The next step is to lay a polythene sheeting if the ground is wet or damp as it will prevent water from finding its way into your concrete. Once done, you can now pour concrete onto the site. 

 

Supplying Ready Mix Concrete for a Range of Projects

It is important to note that our ready mixed concrete is not exclusive to certain businesses. We have provided concrete to many different commercial enterprises, as well as domestic households.  

To achieve ready mixed concrete, we use a mixer that volumetrically proportions the raw materials and adjusts the strength and mix of the concrete. This is done on site instead of at a central batching plant, allowing you to choose the appropriate amount of concrete for your project. 

The aggregate is fed on a conveyor belt into the hopper, and then cement and water is added. The mixture than feeds into a 2.5-metre-long screw auger at the back of our lorry. It is worth noting that the auger can reach up to 5 metres with added extensions. 

 

Domestic

Most domestic projects are for concrete driveways, which are seen as an important investment as a concrete surface such as this should last for at least 30 years. The last thing a homeowner needs is a driveway that requires heavy maintenance and frequent upgrades. By choosing our ready mixed concrete, we can help you create a long-lasting driveway for your property. Our team can deliver upwards of 1/2 a cubic metre of concrete for your project. 

 

Commercial

Our commercial projects tend to be very diverse as they can be small or large in scale. For example, we have supplied concrete to clients building new housing complexes. On the other side of the spectrum, our ready mixed concrete has been requested for concrete stair treads. No project is too small or too big for our dedicated team to take on.

Our on-site method will ensure you get the right volume of concrete you need, and you can trust us to deliver on time. We are fully aware that most commercial projects have a deadline, so you can rest assured that we work within an agreed timeframe. In fact, we have a proven track record for doing this!

Other Services

There is no doubt that we are well known for our ready mixed concrete method, but we also provide other concrete services that you may find helpful for upcoming projects. Below, we have outlined other services that you can take advantage of. 

 

Collect Concrete

If you would prefer to collect concrete yourself as opposed to our team mixing concrete on your site, then head on down to our local plant. Here is where you can select as much concrete as you please. Whats more, you dont have to make an appointment or already have an account with us. Just arrive at our plant and we will provide you with the concrete you need!  

It is important to note that the minimum load of concrete for collection is 0.3m³. The process could not be easier for you, and we accept cash, as well as all major debit and credit cards. 

 

Screed

As well as high quality concrete, we also supply premium screed, made from the finest primary aggregates and cement. For no extra charge, we can include fibres and retardants in the screed. By adding fibres, your screed will be stronger and less likely to crack, and by adding retardants, you will slow down the curing process.

Alternatively, for a small charge, we can add an accelerant, which will enhance and quicken the curing process. This will made it cure faster than if left to do so on its own. 

 

Sand and Gravel

Some building projects require more than just concrete, and by coming to Direct Sand and Gravel, you can select from a range of sands, soils, and aggregates. The materials are of the highest quality, and the delivery service is seamless. In fact, if you order before 3pm, you can have your order delivered to your site the very next day. 

 

Concrete Pumping

Concrete pumping is another popular service that we offer as our method can pour concrete for any project, whether it be for slabs, bases, footings, or driveways. We use various booms, ranging from 16 metres to 56 metres, depending on the project at hand. This flexibility allows us to pour concrete in those hard-to-reach places. 

Traditionally, builders would use wheelbarrows to transport concrete mixture to and from an area, but with our technology, we can speed up the process and tend to those awkward areas. When you enlist this particular service, we will need to know if there are any objects that will affect our pumps ability to reach the area. These include trees, lampposts, overhead power cables and other similar blockages.
