AVR, Inc. & Affiliates is committed to quality control.
We constantly research and test every aspect of concrete to perfect and improve our mixes, overall concrete quality, and capabilities. There are hundreds of combinations of cements, concrete admixtures, aggregates and other cementitious materials. We test every cement, aggregate, and admixture that we use in our concrete to be sure they conform to manufacturer's standards and perform as expected. Visit our Quality Control/Engineering Page for mix design submittal information including cement and fly ash specification sheets, admixture specifications, and gradation info.
Ordering concrete correctly can make your project run a lot smoother. Spend some time on our Ready Mix Dispatch Page if you have questions about the information that our dispatchers look for, as well as what information you should get from them. You can always call our dispatch team at AVR and AME if you prefer live answers.

Use the Concrete Calculator Quick Tool located on the right toolbar above to figure the amount of concrete needed.
Our trucks haul approximately ten (10) cubic yards per delivery when fully loaded, so remember that smaller loads often have extra delivery charges…as a result it is usually cheaper to order just a little extra rather than run the risk of running short and having to pay additional delivery charges for the balance load. Be sure to make a 10% allowance for uneven sub-grade, spillage, etc. and round up to the closest 1/4 yard.
