At Callaghan Concrete Pumps, we supply premium new, second-hand and custom concrete-pumping solutions – both truck-mounted and stationary – and stock various spare parts. We understand that the popularity of concrete pumping is only going to continue to grow since it offers several distinct advantages over crane-and-bucket and purely manual alternatives. This blog will take a closer look at some of those benefits.
Concrete Pumping Makes More Things Possible
The sheer number of concrete-pumping setups possible today lets architects and engineers undertake projects that would not have been possible using old-fashioned methods of concrete supply. Some fantastic creations would have been abandoned simply because the concrete could not be transported to the necessary location(s) in the desired quantity and/or at the desired rate. In 2022, almost anything seems possible, with concrete-pumping needs passed on to trusted firms such as Callaghan Concrete Pumps to together a system that will meet them.
Concrete Pumping Allows for Faster Construction
The ease with which a boom pump can reach the pouring site combined with the speed at which it can pump the concrete result in highly efficient construction. On top of this, there’s the fact that concrete pumping demands less area preparation (in terms of accessing the pouring site) and less cleanup afterwards. We’ll return to this point when we touch on the environmental concerns below. An outsider might be shocked at how rapidly expert concrete-pumping solutions can get jobs done. For example, multiple house foundations can be poured in a single day.
Concrete Pumping Means Cheaper Construction
The efficiency of the kind mentioned in the previous point tends to equate to better value for money. As well as the quickness and reliability of concrete pumping, concrete-pumping requirements will include less manpower (over fewer hours) than other concreting methods. Concrete pumping is also less susceptible to bad weather and muddy ground, which equals fewer rain delays.
Concrete Pumping Also Means Safer Construction
The steady output that comes with concrete pumping lets workers fill forms evenly and safely. The mighty reach of boom pumps also allows trucks to be parked in the safest possible spots, with no risks being taken to try to get the concrete closer as may have been done in the “bad old days”. Correctly calculated concrete-pumping needs will ensure the concrete gets to its destination quickly and safely.
Less Damaging to the Environment
Going back to our point about concrete-pumping requirements demanding less area preparation, this not only cuts down on changes to the natural environment in the form of excavation, etc., but it also saves on the fuels that would typically be consumed by the heavy machinery used in the process (and spares us all of their emissions).
