Frequently Asked Questions

What is concrete and how is it made?

Concrete is one of the oldest building materials known to man. It is extremely strong, durable and able to be moulded into virtually any shape you can imagine.

It is made by mixing together:
  1. Cement (this is the glue that holds everything else together),
  2. stone (also called aggregate),
  3. sand, and
  4. water.
Other ingredients, such as: specialist chemicals, colour pigments, steel & plastic, can be added to further enhance its mechanical properties.

Bulk supply of concrete is produced using Computer controlled Production Plants in accordance with Industry and Australian Standards.
