Our calculator tool is an easy way to work out how much concrete you will need for your project.


If you're embarking on a construction project and considering the use of ready mix concrete for the first time, you're in the right place. Figuring out the right amount of concrete you'll need might seem daunting, but fear not – we're here to break it down for you. Plus, we've got a nifty tool that'll make the calculation process a breeze. So, let's dive in!

Why Getting the Right Amount Matters

Using the correct amount of ready mix concrete is crucial for a successful project. Too little, and you'll find yourself short on materials and unable to complete your work. Too much, and you'll end up wasting resources and money. That's where accurate calculations come into play.

The Easy Calculation Process

Calculating the right amount of ready mix concrete isn't as complex as it may seem. Follow these simple steps:

  1. Measure the Area: Start by measuring the area where you'll be pouring the concrete. If it's a rectangular shape, multiply the length by the width. For more complex shapes, you might need to break them down into simpler components.
  2. Determine the Depth: Decide on the thickness or depth of the concrete you need. This will depend on the purpose of the concrete – driveways, foundations, and sidewalks have different requirements.
  3. Convert to Cubic Meters (M3): Since concrete quantities are typically measured in cubic meters (M3), convert your measurements to this unit by multiplying the area by the depth.
  4. Use the Calculator: Here's where the magic happens. Head over to our Ready Mix Calculator tool. Simply input your M3 value and the tool will give you an accurate estimate of the amount of ready mix concrete you need. Easy, right?
