Our latest addition is a fleet of robotic screeding machines. These machines use laser-guided technology to create perfectly level surfaces with minimal human intervention. This not only improves the quality of our finished concrete surfaces but also significantly reduces the physical strain on our workers.

Sustainable Practices in Our Concrete Projects

At Concreter Townsville, we recognize the importance of environmental stewardship in the construction industry. We’ve implemented several sustainable practices that not only reduce our ecological footprint but also provide long-term benefits to our clients.

One of our key initiatives is the use of recycled aggregates in our concrete mixes. By incorporating crushed concrete from demolished structures, we’re reducing the demand for virgin materials and diverting waste from landfills. Our rigorous quality control ensures that these recycled aggregates meet or exceed the performance of traditional materials.

We’ve also invested in water recycling systems for our concrete production facilities. These systems capture and treat wastewater from our operations, allowing us to reuse it in subsequent batches of concrete. This approach significantly reduces our water consumption and minimizes our impact on local water resources.

Another sustainable practice we’ve adopted is the use of supplementary cementitious materials (SCMs) such as fly ash and ground granulated blast furnace slag. These materials partially replace Portland cement in our mixes, reducing the carbon footprint of our concrete while often enhancing its durability and performance.
