Prepping for a Successful Concrete Delivery

When it comes to construction projects, there are a million little things to worry about. If you work with a skilled concrete contractor in San Francisco, concrete delivery doesn’t have to be one. Still, there are a few steps you can take on your end to ensure that concrete delivery goes as smoothly as possible. Here’s a brief guide to help you along. concrete - delivery

Determining Need

First, it’s a good idea to have a concrete contractor survey your construction site and help you determine precisely how much concrete you’ll need and what type. This is vital information that will allow the contractor to determine the best mode of delivery. Depending on your level of need, it may be more practical and cost-effective to set up a portable batch plant on-site rather than deliver concrete via a cement mixer.

Setting a Time

Now comes the tricky part: You’ll need to coordinate your construction schedule with your concrete contractor’s availability. Though concrete itself is sturdy, the mixing and pouring process is somewhat delicate, and requires very careful timing. When the concrete arrives, you had better make sure that the pour site is adequately excavated and that the other prerequisite tasks have been completed to your satisfaction.

Creating Batch Space

If your project involves more than 100 yards of concrete, your contractor will recommend setting up a batch plant on-site. For this to be successful, there will need to be sufficient space on your construction site for the batching apparatus. If you have any questions about batch space, ask your concrete contractor to describe the ideal setup.

Clearing a Path

For a smaller project, a normal cement mixer should suffice. Still, you’ll need to a clear a safe path so the cement truck can access the project area. Ideally, the cement truck will be within 12 feet of the project. If it’s not possible to get the truck that close, you should clear a path for pumping or delivering the concrete via a wheelbarrow.
