How about price different between "Cpac" finish mixed concrete and for concrete if i do it by myself?

For exemple...just for imagine: Cubic meter (i guess they count by Cubic meter....right?) Concrete for make Foundation.

I am not sure about what is more cheaper but i think if anybody need a lot of concrete to same time...in one step (like for Foundation) Cpac will be a perfect way....or?
But i think if anybody build his house uptown delivery service from Cpac will be really expensive...or they also have shops uptown?

CPAC is appropriate for jobs where you need massive amounts of concrete fast. It comes out nice, is high quality and quick. Eg. Pools, house floor, drive way. Things it won't work for; foundation columns, rendering, anything else requiring measured use of concrete.

I believe the finished cost would be comparable considering there is a savings as far as labor.

Price cpac truck?

Postby Lanta » Mon Mar 27, 2006 5:27 pm

Does anybody know how many cubic meters a cpac truck can hold and what would be the price per truck?
The reason i'm asking is that im about to have a support concretewall built.
It will be a long wall but im still confused about how the contractor calculated the amount of conctrete.
He calculated 40 cpac trucks, in sweden where i live a normal truck holds about 10 m3.
Thats 400m3 for a wall 120 meters long and in average 2.5-3 meters high, 0.60 thick.
It just does not add up for me unless the thai trucks hold a smaller amount.

There were no replies to the above thread and I'm not surprised. The whole idea of building a wall this way is totally ludicrous. Has the engineer never heard of bricks? They have bricks in Sweden too - I know, I've been there. Seems like you obviously met someone who was either making a joke in very bad taste, or was really expecting the chance of selling one hell of a lot of concrete. I have started a new topic on CPAC which gives some facts and figures.
