DELIVERING CONCRETE TO HELP CONVERT OLD MILLS IN OLDHAM

Supplying concrete for screed flooring

 

Converting old, Industrial-era mills isn’t an easy task. You need a wide variety of skills and plenty of support from local suppliers to turn a run-down warehouse into a modern, functional building.

Goodmix were one of those suppliers, trusted to deliver ready-mix concrete in Oldham for one of the town’s latest building projects.

When they needed large batches for screed flooring inside their mill conversion, they gave us a call.

Start at the bottom

Safe, solid flooring is of course integral to any building, and unfortunately, in the old 19th century mills and warehouses, the floors are one of the first areas to rot and crumble away. 

So the first step for this conversion was sorting the foundations and re-screeding the entire ground floor. And if you’ve ever been inside any Victorian-era cotton mill, you’ll know just how much floorspace that is to cover.

That meant finding a provider who could deliver large amounts of concrete in one day – with several truck loads required for both interior and exterior areas.

It meant finding a concrete supplier who could deliver multiple batches of fresh, high quality concrete without any issues.

On time, on-spec, uninterrupted deliveries

With our next day delivery service and large fleet of state-of-the-art volumetric mixers, delivering multiple batches of ready mix concrete in Oldham wasn’t a problem.

We spoke with the site manager to discuss his requirements and scheduled the day and time when the first batch would be required. Our team were on standby too, should their plans change as is common with construction sites.

When other site projects were completed earlier than expected, we were able to arrange next day delivery to keep work moving on site, pouring concrete for their screed flooring as soon as they were ready for it.

With multiple vehicles at our disposal, we supplied a continuous stream of concrete until the entire ground floor of the mill, some important foundations, and exterior groundwork had all been completed.

 

No delays, no hassle

It was exactly what the construction team to needed for the first stage of their mill conversion project.

The site manager has since called us back whenever him and his team need concrete, for this and other projects in his development company’s portfolio.
