Concrete Plant Quality Control/Quality Assurance and Certification

Concrete readymix plants full compliance with NZS 3104:2003 Specification for Concrete Production and with NZRMCA Plant Audit Scheme. Preparation for newly installed or non-certified plants and or companies for NZS 3104:2003 compliance and Plant Audit Certification.
Concrete readymix plant QC/QA systems set up that are in line with the local and international codes of practices.

 


Concrete Mix Optimisation

Cost reduction and improvement of mix performance.
This can be part of concrete plant QC/QA system or totally independent.
CBE Consultancy gained a considerable experience in concrete mix optimisation both in New Zealand and overseas. Cost saving up to 5-10% have been achieved.
For greater savings a BlueCONCRETE technology of G.tecz, which CBE Consultancy represents in New Zealand in Australia,  can be utilised.
