The problem with poor-quality concrete
Concrete is made up of an intricately calculated mix of cement, aggregates and water. While quality-assured concrete has been thoroughly tested for this precise mix, uncertified options may contain recycled, contaminated or low-quality aggregates that can potentially reduce the performance of the concrete and increase the building’s risk of structural weakness.
So, why use quality-assured concrete? Well, because it is affordable, reliable and the best option for keeping your building safe and strong for as long as possible.
Here at Rapid Readymix, our concrete is certified under the BSI standards: BS EN 206-1 and BS 8500 (parts one and two). We are one of just a few volumetric suppliers in London and the South East to hold the BSI Kitemark, as it is usually only given to traditional drum-mixer suppliers.
