(step by step process to order ready mix concrete)
The process begins with an incoming phone call for a client or new customer to the concrete dispatcher explaining their needs and requirements for a delivery of ready mix concrete, this includes the psi or pounds per square inch required at the job site location, this could be 3000psi for footings or foundation walls, 3500psi typically for sidewalks or pathways, and 4000psi typically for driveways or where heavy equipment may be used or stored, a psi rating is also driven by building codes and zoning regulations subject to inspection. Once the agreed psi has been selected, a customer will indicate how many cubic yards are needed for the job delivery site. If a customer is unsure of the precise amount needed the dispatcher will be glad to assist in calculating the required amount with the help of computer-based calculators and charts taking into consideration the length and width in linear feet and also the depth, usually in inches to come up with a set amount or yards to deliver.
Ready mix concrete is a mixture of Portland cement, sand, water and ¾” gravel which is loaded into the concrete mixing machine at our location and manually operated by our technician to mix and adjust the proper ratio of these ingredients to the required psi of the customer needs.
Once mixed it moves along a conveyor belt onto our waiting concrete delivery truck or customer pickup as the driver stands by verifying the set amount by the customer. Immediately after being loaded the driver will go right away to the job location.
Upon arrival, the driver will communicate with the masons the desired location to pour the concrete which is usually framed out beforehand by the workers.
The driver then engages the controls to begin the delivery out of the "barrel” and down the chutes attached to the truck to the waiting concrete forms. When the delivery is complete the driver rinses off the chutes to eliminate any excess buildup or residue so that he will be ready for the next customer and returns to the plant location for his next job assignment.
The true benefits of a ready mix cement pour are the precise required amounts for psi and total yards needed as well as the speedy delivery which saves the tedious task of workers manually mixing bags of cement stone and sand and water in a small portable capacity mixer, and then having to manually transport it by wheel barrels, which drives up the job site labor cost and increases the length of the project finish time in days.
A ready mix delivery ultimately drives up profitability, and reduces labor and cost expenses for the contractors.
