Midnight Delivery

Concrete4U were asked to supply concrete for the construction of a level crossing. This took place during the night to minimise disruption. The volumetric mobile batching plant was ideally suited to this contract as we had to wait on site for 2 hours before the concrete was required, then stop and start production of fresh concrete over a 5 hour period.

Conventional concrete, batched at a static plant and delivered pre-mixed in a drum, would have become unusable part way through the pour. But with a Concrete4U volumetric truck we could make the concrete as and when required, a little drier when it started raining, a little wetter when the contractor needed to put a smooth finish on the edges.

9m³ were ordered, but less than 7m³ were used each night. This was no problem as we only mixed the quantity required and the customer paid for what they used. There was nowhere to wash out conventional wagons or dispose of excess concrete, but due to our volumetric mobile batching plant there was no waste and no returned concrete.

If you need an out of hours or night time delivery of concrete, please do not hesitate to contact Concrete4U for a quotation.
