Concrete Pumping in Manchester, Rochdale, and Oldham – Call 01422 220851

Spot on concrete has been the number one concrete supplier in the Manchester region for over three decades for any sized construction project, whether it be commercial or domestic, we are the region concrete supplier of choice. Ready-Mix concrete pumping direct to your pour site is our speciality and you must pick an experienced concrete supplier who can advise on the most effective way to deliver your concrete for you. Let us show you how our expertise and machinery can save you both time and money on your project, including our availability to be able to deliver concrete 24/7.

An example of saving time and money is if you are constantly wheelbarrowing concrete, which can delay the completion of any concrete project, cause inaccuracy, and can quickly cause fatigue for the labourers. Concrete pumping can prevent the need for wheelbarrowing, as it can transport ready-mixed concrete faster than any human pushing a wheelbarrow could, saving labour time, and resulting in better accuracy in your final project.

What Is Concrete Pumping?

Concrete pumping is the process of transporting freshly mixed concrete to a specific location on-site with a concrete pump. This could be in a tall building, a below the ground construction project, or simply in a back garden. Whenever a large amount of concrete is required, it is best practice to use a concrete pump. Concrete pumps are attached to trucks for transportation.

What Are The Benefits Of Concrete Pumping?

Cost-Effective

Concrete pumping can deliver high-quality concrete at far lower costs than traditional methods such as wheelbarrowing. Concrete pumping can save you the money that you would have to use to pay multiple labourers over an extended period. Wheelbarrowing can also lead to spillage of concrete and less accuracy; both problems can be avoided by using concrete pumping as it pumps concrete directly to the site where the concrete is required. 

More Precision Achieved

In many ways, the introduction of concrete pumping has drastically changed the way modern concrete construction is designed and built. This is because concrete pumping causes buildings to be sturdier, to look better, and to be more accurate to the plans. Concrete pumping and other modern-day technologies are potentially a reason for more modern-looking buildings.

Being more precise means that concrete pumps will lead to less concrete being wasted at the construction site which reduces time, manpower and money.

Accessibility

Not only are concrete pumps extremely easy to transport, but they can also reach the more difficult to access areas which are frequently encountered in many construction projects. When a boom pump is used, concrete can be elevated over tall structures or houses that may be blocking access, allowing concrete to be delivered wherever you need it to be.

What Are The Types Of Concrete Pumps?

BOOMLESS PUMP (GROUND PUMPS)

Boomless pumps are used to feed concrete to the required location using tubes across the ground. They are mainly used for smaller construction projects where it is difficult to transport concrete, such as gardens that can only be accessed via narrow alleys or a wheelbarrow would not be able to access. The tubes from a boomless pump can travel through small gaps to access the required location and can also deliver the concrete much more accurately than wheelbarrowing and manual placement could. Please do not hesitate to get in contact regarding more information about boomless pumps and the suitability of use for your project.

BOOM PUMPS

Boom pumps are used in construction projects where the area concrete is required cannot be located with a boomless pump. These pumps use an extended robotic arm that is remote controlled and can reach up and over large buildings and other obstructions. Boomless pumps are ideal for construction projects where concrete is required on higher ground, such as the top floor of a new office block. The length and agility of the arms allow it to transport concrete safely and quickly to pretty much any location. A boom pump is excellent for new large construction projects and even existing buildings with large obstructions. The concrete pumps at Spot On are also efficient enough to pump the ready mix concrete to the location in a matter of minutes.

In our trucks, the concrete is mixed then dispensed into a hopper on the back of the truck. When the concrete is in the hopper, the concrete is churned to keep it constantly flowing. The concrete is then pulled from the hopper into the pump, where it is then transported down the pump to the desired location, quickly and with high accuracy. Once the final process is complete, ‘reverse pumping’ can sometimes take place, which effectively cleans out the hose after a pour. If you require concrete for a larger construction project with clear obstructions, or the location that concrete is required is at a low depth or a high height, call Spot On Concrete for highly efficient concrete pumping services in Manchester and West Yorkshire.

Calculator

Our ready mix concrete gives us precise control over how much concrete is made for your project. So, how much do you need? The bulk of your concrete will probably be going into a square area, so you calculate how much concrete you need with a few measurements:

When calculating the amount of concrete required, we recommend adding an extra 5-10% onto your total estimate to allow for possible errors as well as spillage or over excavation / uneven surfaces.
