Mistakes that construction professionals make when specifying, ordering and receiving concrete can have far-reaching strength and performance effects on houses and other structures built by them. It is very important that project managers, on-site contractors, and everyone involved in ordering and buying concrete, familiarise themselves with the right processes and procedures when working with the most important building material. There are hundreds of different types of readymix available on the market for use in different applications. It is, however, important to remember that many different mix designs can be supplied to make allowance for workability, and that many other factors can affect the success of concrete on site. The relationship between the buyer/user and the professional readymix company therefore needs to be accurate and precise.
