bagged ready mixed concrete


Recommended Posts

anyone know if its  available in Thailand?

Want  to  build  a kitchen in a condo, block  sides and concrete  top but dont  want to have to lug bags of sand  cement and stone up in a lift, size about 6  foot  long on the main length 4  foot along the other side  L  shaped in the corner of  a room........hoping the floor  will take that kind  of weight ( it is in a corner so the strongest point) or maybe use  aac  blocks, ether way BAGGED pre  mixed  concrete ie  just add water?

This  will be for the top onto which Ill put some granite etc like  this

For a different approach, QCon do ready made panels to construct units for kitchens and bathrooms.   Just order then 'stick' them together, less mess and less time. Also, probably, less weig

Forgot to add, no sand cement used been built about 5 years

Thai Watsadu have large bags of sand-cement dry mix. Don’t remember the cost though...

yeah  still have to add stone, but  ill  go  have a look, I  know they do ready  mix  mortar  now, i also know its very soft when dry, need probably 10  bags to do the counter  top and a bit  of steel.

I haven't seen the redi-mix. I buy bags of sand, rock and cement. Basically the same.

dont want to  lug  it up and mix it in a condo. Dont  mind  lugging  up bags  premixed then adding water and mixing  in the room but dont want the stuff  everywhere.

anyone any thoughts on the weight of  concrete ie  cinder  blocks on the floor, not sure what loads they can take here, as mentioned its  in the corner so weight is  not  in the middle  of any span. Guess it  will be about  30  blocks total (4 high) + concrete and granite  on top.

The apartment where I live  I believe they used  precast  prestressed reinforced concrete planks for the floors..I've had a 18x18x36 inch fish tank ( 190 litres = 190 KG)  sitting on it for years with no (obvious) problems    so pretty sure your counter top which is also tied into the wall (should tied into the wall)

will be fine.   However I take no responsibility for what may happen if your condo is  made of cardboard,sawdust and plastic bags   as  was shockingly revealed some time ago in the news and here on the forum somewhere 😋

It's the same either you lug up sacks of cement, rock and sand or you lug up the redi-mix, same same.

Probably 750 kg in all?

That is how many people?Lets say ten,nothing to worry about. imagine having ten people in the middle of the room,your floor should not cave in.

You should tie it into the wall as well to make sure it does not create cracks later on.

This is probably a better way to deal with this. Particularly in a Condo. 

 

We recently had kitchen built (extension). The contractors were trying to build the same type of concrete structure. They got as far as laying the countertop before we realised it was going to be somewhat of an eye-saw. 

 

We ended up getting them to knock down the counter and finish off the main structure.

We then got IKEA to fit a kitchen who did an exceptional job. 

 

Thus: Another option is to get a company (Index, IKEA, Boonthaworn etc) to install a fitted kitchen rather than have a concrete kitchen built.
