C10 / GEN 1

C10 and Gen 1 are extremely versatile mixes used throughout the construction industry for general and housing applications. This includes un-reinforced strip, trench fill and and agricultural applications. They can also be used for drainage works and blinding house floors, as well as pad foundations and non-structural mass concrete in non-aggressive ground conditions.

Ideal for: Foundations for steps, trench fill, floor blinding & drainage works.

C15 /ST1

C15 and ST1 are suitable for house floors with no embedded metal. They also provide the ideal material for flooring when no permanent finish or floor covering will be installed, such as carpet or tile.

Ideal for: Foundations for small walls, sheds & conservatories. Paving for steps and paths.

C20 / GEN 3

C20 and Gen 3 are commonly used for lightweight domestic applications and foundations, such as driveways and garage, shed & workshop bases. They can also be used to construct internal floor slabs so long as they contain no embedded metal.

Ideal for: Foundations for large walls, garages, houses & extensions. Paving for patios. Reinforced bases & oversites for conservatories, garages, sheds, greenhouses.

C25 / ST 2

C25 or ST2 are widely versatile and used in numerous commercial and domestic projects. They are commonly used for footings and foundations, including mass concrete fill, trench fill and reinforced fill, as well as general ground works. They can also be used for kerbing, infilling around manholes and small bases for external furniture, such as patios.

Ideal for: Foundations and reinforced bases for houses & extensions. Trench fill, kerbing & patios.

C30 / PAV1 / ST 3

C30, PAV1 and ST 3 are the most common types of concrete used for pavement construction. They are also ideal for lighter use external applications, such as slabbing, as well as outdoor paved areas such as stables, driveways, walkways, patios and garages. PAV 1 mixes have an air entrainment additive to create standard sized air bubbles in the concrete. This helps to protect the surface from freeze-thaw cycles, making it especially useful for outdoor paving.

Ideal for: Paving external kennels and reinforced hard standings. Reinforced bases for workshops and unreinforced bases for houses & extensions.

C35 / PAV2

C35 and PAV2 are heavy-duty use concrete mixes. They offer high quality similar to PAV1, but are much more substantial making them suitable for commercial and industrial use. Common applications include raft foundations, piling and external slabbing and pacing that will be subject to the constant loading and scraping imposed by industrial vehicles and machinery. PAV 2 mixes have an air entrainment additive to create standard sized air bubbles in the concrete. This helps to protect the surface from freeze-thaw cycles, making it especially useful for outdoor paving.

Ideal for: Reinforced bases for commercial buildings and agricultural light storage areas.


C40 concrete is a strong commercial grade concrete mix most commonly used in the construction of structural and support beams, footings and foundations, road works, and in agricultural use.

Ideal for: Foundations for septic tanks, paving HGV parks and agricultural yards.


FND2 is a sulphate resistant concrete, for when you have sulphate soils or are laying on clay.

Ideal for: use for foundations including reinforced bases.

P400 - Self-Levelling Ready Mixed Concrete

Benefits include high workability, increased strength, reduced setting time, self compacting concrete and reduced equipment wear.

Floor Screed

A screed mix is relatively strong, using one part cement to three parts sharp sand, and when done well it gives a smooth and level floor on which to lay your chosen floor finish. A screed is also the preferred medium when laying under floor heating pipes. We can also add fibres to any mix to reinforce the concrete.
