Ready mix concrete Basingstoke

If you need to have ready-mix concrete delivered in Basingstoke, there are several key questions that must be asked before committing to any service. You need to know that you are getting value for money and will receive a concrete mix (aggregate) that satisfies BS 8500-2 regulations. Concrete 247 is the perfect choice for any domestic or commercial job.

The most common problem with traditional concrete delivery stems from estimating how much material is needed. Order too little and you will face avoidable delays or have an incomplete project. Conversely, though, ordering too much concrete for your project in Basingstoke leaves you with too much material, which signals a huge waste of money.

Guides on common projects like laying a patio in Basingstoke can point you in the right direction. Moreover, the calculator to the right of this page provides further support. Even so, it can be easy to order more than is necessary to avoid the fear of underestimating the project. Instead of a standard ready-mix solution, Concrete 247 delivers the aggregate and the water as separate items before mixing it on location.

This method, known as volumetric concrete delivery in Basingstoke, can be used to support any project in the RG21 area. Whether it's screed flooring, shed bases, driveways, or any other product that requires concrete, you can have 100% confidence in this method. By completing the mixing process on-site, you can be sure to pour only the required amount of concrete. This will deliver a range of benefits for the project as well as your bank balance. Whether it’s a small project or a large home build, you’ll never return to the traditional methods after you've tried this path. The future of concrete delivery in Basingstoke has arrived. From DIY enthusiasts to professional builders, Concrete 247 is the answer.

Volumetric Concrete Delivery In Basingstoke Explained

Volumetric concrete delivery essentially means that we’ll make the concrete on location rather than deliver it in the post-mix state. While you might not think that it makes much of a difference, the benefits are plentiful. Some of the most telling features include;

  • We only pour what’s needed and charge per metre,
  • Concrete mixes do not stiffen during transit or need further watering down,
  • There is no waste and any excess can be removed without charge or fuss,
  • Concrete can be pumped using our big pipes - if deemed necessary,
  • Pouring is made smooth by volumetric mixers.

The knowledge that you will have enough but not too much concrete is hugely important. Meanwhile, having fresh concrete that is mixed to the right ratio without needing extra water ensures that the project is supported by the best materials. Furthermore, having our experts mix, pour, and potentially transport the concrete can have a telling influence too. Crucially, you can be sure that this is the right service regardless of the project size.

Maintaining control over key issues like quantity, quality, and speed of pouring makes volumetric concrete the best form of ready-mix concrete delivered in Basingstoke by far. And Concrete 247 can unlock the full potential of this method, meaning a better result for you.

Choose the right concrete for your project

Here are some handy tips and tricks for starting your next project.


Before laying down your carefully designed patio you will need to ensure you have a solid foundation or base to take the top covering.

Typically for patio bases a C10 or C20 mix would be used – if you would like to read more about concrete mixes please see our Concrete FAQ.

Concrete is mixed on your site to your specification and quantity in Concrete247’s volumetric mixers.

Shed Bases

Shed bases are really footings and foundations combined and not requiring a massive strength due to the load from both the building and how the base (floor) is used.

Typically for sheds, a C20 mix would be used – if you would like to read more about concrete mixes please see our Concrete FAQ.

Concrete for driveways, in either domestic or commercial use, can be used for either a base for a decorative top covering or as the finished result.

Typically a C25 mix would be used –if you would like to read more about concrete mixes please see our Concrete FAQ.

Footings & Foundations

Footings are there to support the foundations of a building, domestic or commercial, and ensure the construction doesn’t sink into the ground it is built on.

Foundations are probably the most important part of any build and once laid blockwork and brickwork can often start 24 hours later.

Typically for lightweight foundations such as workshops and sheds a C20 mix would be used or C25 mix for more substantial buildings –if you would like to read more about concrete mixes please see our Concrete FAQ.

Used in both domestic and commercial situations screed is a thin layer of specially prepared concrete poured onto a concrete sub-base. It enables a smooth and level surface to be created that can later be covered with tiles, carpets or similar.
