Welcome to Base Concrete

Here at Base Concrete, we specialise in ready-mixed concrete for commercial and DIY customers alike. Through several tweaks in our functioning, we have streamlined our workflow to provide you with the most hassle-free experience out there. This has helped us in garnering a reputation second to none. From highest quality concrete to its efficient supply at the construction site, trust us to simply deliver!
Each of the mixes that we supply come from a QSRMC accredited plant and conform to British Standard BS8500-2. This means that for every 50-100m of concrete that is produced, a cube sample (a small cube shaped box full of concrete) is taken to a lab and crush-tested to see if it stands up to the Newton force that the mix is supposed to. E.g. a C35 Concrete sample, has to withstand 35 Newton of force.

We have All the Concrete Mixes that You Might Need! Every. Single. Type.

The names of the C mixes let you know the Newton-strength of the mix, so, the higher the number, the more cement content it has. Check out below to have a better idea of just some of the concrete mixes that we provide, and the specific use-case scenarios, be it a DIY or a commercial customer.

  1. Gen1 (C15) is a basic foundation mix for single story extensions, wall footings, and conservatories
  2. Gen3 (C20) is a foundation mix as well, and is used for double story extensions and also internal floor mix and shed bases.
  3. C35 mix has the trait of strength, and is used for ring beams and driveways.
  4. C40 is used for rafts, and ring beams for foundations.
  5. FND2 class 2, is a sulphate mix with high cement content for use on clay and sulphate soils wherever specified.
  6. Pav 1 for external use driveways and paths etc (including AEA frost prevention)
  7. Pav2 is a heavy duty mix for external use in commercial yards (including AEA frost prevention)
  8. Farm Pave used for agricultural stable and barn bases, a very strong mix with fibres included as animal urin can weaken the concrete

The above is just a glimpse! We also have an expertise in providing Commercial Concrete Mixes and several other variations with different strengths.

For instance, RC mixes are often used with reinforced steel and are designed to minimise the risk of corrosion to the steel by using minimum cement content. We are the experts, and there are several such tricks up our sleeve.

Just to clarify, there are numerous mixes of concrete and we can deliver whichever mix you need, period. Just get in touch with our staff, and they will help you along the way to assess and determine the exact amount of concrete that you need.

Hiccup-Free Supplies through Our Pump-hire Services

The concrete pumps we have, are line pumps, this means that they run along the ground using steel and rubber pipes. These are very popular as they are mounted on 7.5-tonne lorries. They aren’t very big, but can run up to 100m in length. Each lorry carries 60m of pipe, but we can also come with the lengthier alternatives if informed beforehand! These pumps can go through houses, up alleyways, or can even be erected vertically when connected to scaffoldings.
