For over 60 years, Monier have been at the leading edge of concrete  technology. Located at 6 Mile and 9 Mile the Monier readymix concrete operations are  ideally situated to service the construction and building industry in  National Capital District (NCD) and Central Province.

Monier produces readymix concrete normal (N) and special (S) grades to Australian Standards and/or engineers / designer’s nominated specifications.

Monier’s capacity to deliver;

  • Three computer controlled readymix concrete batch plants producing quality certified readymix concrete including high strength for structural applications.
    • All three batching plants have a capacity rating of 70m3 per hour and have a combined proven capacity of 1000m3 per day.
    • The 3 batch plants are completely independent of each other providing for 100% obsolescence in the unlikely event of a plant breakdown during a continuous concrete pour.
    • The concrete batching computers allow measurable and traceable addition of admixtures that contribute to control of setting times, pumpability, workability, minimising water content and minimising shrinkage as and when required.
  • A sizeable fleet for delivery; 22 truck mounted agitators provide for high capacity of delivery of readymix concrete to customers sites.
  • Substantial onsite cement and aggregates storage provides mitigation against stock-outs that would otherwise interrupt readymix concrete production and continued delivery to our customers.
  • Large capacity water chilling plant allows temperature controlled concrete to be produced.

With the three concrete batch plants and the substantial fleet of concrete mixers, Monier has been able to deliver concrete pours to a single customer of over 1000m3 in a day, whilst maintaining service to the general market.

Monier operations are integrated allowing control of the supply chain and quality control of raw materials ensuring appropriate standards of quality are maintained.

A disciplined sampling and testing regime is undertaken to determine trends in concrete characteristics and to ensure target strengths and other specified minimum requirements are achieved.
