Anyone who has either been working on, or overseeing, a large building project will be able to tell you how the onsite mixing of concrete can quickly become a liability. There are a number of reasons why using onsite concrete mixing is a poor choice compared to pre-mixed concrete and these include:

Consistency – If you use onsite mixed concrete, there will be a good deal of variations in the quality. It isn’t easy to get the exact proportions of all the materials right when you’re working on-site and so, there will be small, but noticeable differences in each batch produced. This can affect things such as drying time, flow and strength. Pre-mixed concrete has none of these issues and every single batch will be virtually identical and will meet the requirements of the plans.

Time-consuming – If you or one of your workers has to mix the concrete, that’s time that could have been spent doing something else. When you add up the cost of materials plus the hours spent mixing, onsite mixed concrete becomes a much less cost-effective option.

Delivery – Being able to get the concrete where it’s needed can be difficult if you don’t have the right equipment. Pre-mixed concrete will arrive with all the tools required to put it down in hard to reach areas.
