It’s underfoot and above our heads, it surrounds and supports us and it’s surprising to learn that this most mundane of grey products has a heritage stretching back to ancient times.
Concrete is the second most used substance in the world, after water. It was pioneered by the Mayans, employed extensively by the Romans – the Colosseum in Rome is largely a concrete structure – and today look around any urban environment and this magical mix of aggregate and cement is there, from bollards to brutalist architecture.
Although you may not be constructing a lifesize copy of the Pantheon, concrete is a useful ally as you set about adding a conservatory to your home, laying a drive, or pouring the foundations for an extension and Mixamate, the country’s leading provider of mix on-site concrete and screed can help.
Established 45 years ago the family-run business offers a first-class service covering most concrete needs and revolutionized the way the construction industry produces concrete.
Once upon a time, your concrete arrived on-site and then began the laborious task of barrowing it to the desired location. Mixamate’s unique all-in-one concrete pumping and screed pumping trucks provide the delivery, mixing, and pumping of concrete and screed from a single vehicle – meaning you don’t need to hire a separate concrete pump or screed pump to get the product to the desired spot on site.
Mixamate has a fleet of more than 25 specialist vehicles that can deliver exactly what you need, so you only pay for what you use. Operating throughout London, the South East and Yorkshire.
The company has a rich history of innovation in the mix-on-site sector, and its unique Conqueror vehicle operates on a digitally-controlled mixing and administration system, making Mixamate trucks vastly superior in the concrete and screed industry.
You only pay for what you lay
Mixamate’s service means there’s no need to hire a separate pump and you only pay for what you lay, reducing waste. Quick delivery to your area means a rapid, clean turnaround and, as a result, shorter construction times overall.
Using flexible rubber hoses the specialist trucks are able to deliver concrete and screed up to 80m away from the truck, ideal for basements or multi-story floors.
In addition to concrete and screed pumping, Mixamate also offers more traditional forms of delivery for dry concrete and screed, including straight pour, mini-dumper, and barrowing.
