New practical site guide for site based employees and contractors
8 Dec 2017
The British Ready-Mixed Concrete Association (BRMCA) have published a new practical site guide for site based employees and contractors.
The pocket-sized guide contains practical guidance on how to specify, order, receive, place, compact, finish and cure ready-mixed concrete on construction sites. Guidance is also appended on sampling concrete for testing consistence and air content, and making specimens for strength for those contractors who carry out these activities on site.
The guide can be requested from BRMCA or downloaded at www.brmca.org.uk/downloads.php
